@lan_fan: How is Indonesia doing so far? I heard that they're efficiently fending off this pandemic.
We're doing okay, but we're not doing anything out of the ordinary against the virus compared to other countries. Our healthcare system is below average, so there's that. The worst thing Covid19 has done is creating panic, and I'd say Indonesians are particularly very gullible. It's not looking good. I'm not that much worried about the virus, but damn, these overreacting people are destroying themselves and they're dragging everyone with them.
Never judge your civilization's efficiency due to a lower intellectual property, "Xerxes, you might have a lot of slaves but almost no warriors" -King Leonidas film 300.
What good is it to have a better tech or a more advanced healthcare, when the people do not exploit it properly, what good is it to know the theory as a doctor when at the time to deal with a surgery, he/she lacks the temper and therefore he/she shakes like a pitifull weakling.
What good is it to know alot about biochemistry when at the time to exercise it, the individual lacks the temper to take self-initiative and therefore be innovative.
