Poll Is it Bold or Stupid move to force a New Normal state when the COVID-19 case graph rises hundreds or even thousands every day? (17 votes)

Very Stupid thing to do. 41%
Bold move 29%
Some of the World Government are Scumbags 29%

I do not understand with my government they confidently impose new norms under the pretext of saving the economy because the country's debt has swelled, inflation cannot be suppressed, termination of mass employment that has an impact on the economy is almost collapsing. they madly raise taxes, electricity bills raise the price of basic necessities and tariffs. instead they cover up large cases of corruption in the government rather than chasing the rotten corruptors to return state money. Is it true that their actions even though vaccines have not yet been discovered, they are more concerned with money than human lives. I'm criticizing here because if in an open forum in a government like this I could be jailed.

@killbilly: its herd immunity and that's not how it works. Its mainly just the US and I'm glad the rest of the world is planning to lock them in, even here in Canada

Economy is going to shit regardless of the quarantine, people stop spending on commodities during crises, however, you can impose reasonable safety rules and maintain the economy fully. You are just not imaginative/intelligent enough.

That's nice. Problem is, what people view as "reasonable safety rules" is going to vary and for good reason. Every place is different and everybody feels differently about the risks they're willing to take. The safest thing we could do would be to stay in a plastic bubble and grow our own food. People aren't going to do that. We have to take measured reasonable responses, not allow fear to rule us. I know that can be hard to do for people like yourself.

I'd also be interested in hearing your plan for reinvigorating the economy to its former levels while keeping the "safety rules" you have now. One that doesn't require a significant increase in taxes.

I think it's important to move around and do a few star jumps, maybe some side bends and toe touches.

In Serbia we are working the entire time. Literally nothing has to be closed. Get masks, do tests, measure temperature twice a day. It needs a bit of effort from people, but nothing actually has to stop. Just use common-sense measures. The only businesses that will suffer are night clubs.

Not particularly. Just pointing out that a move like that is definitely done more to "send a message" but that it's going to have obvious economic repercussions. I'd rather it not as it simply causes unnecessary suffering, but that's just how it is. I dislike how people swallow the bullshit they're fed on a daily basis.

I mean, you do understand that you have an insane number of infected people and you aren't testing nearly enough. If the States step up with the efforts and idiots in Florida don't keep pretending they can't breathe through a mask for the 20 mintus they spend in the store, sure, we shouldn't let anyone from the states here.

It's not sustainable in the long term. We'd need to develop a vaccine within the next couple of months ( looking more unlikely by the day ) but even then, COVID19 is a virus so it mutates much faster than other diseases ( not as quickly as something like influenza but it's no measles either ). There's likely going to be subsequent breakouts of this in the years to come. Closing borders and restricting businesses every time it happens just isn't viable.

The economic repercussions can be argued to cause more deaths in the long term than the disease.

Dude, COVID already killed like 150k people in USA alone. It's hard to argue that economic repercussions will cause more death. The only thing we are seeing is that the market isn't nearly flexible enough to withstand harsh tests. Which is just a failure of capitalism as a whole. We should all be able to continue working pretty much the same with the exception of night clubs

The only thing we are seeing is that the market isn't nearly flexible enough to withstand harsh tests. Which is just a failure of capitalism as a whole. We should all be able to continue working pretty much the same with the exception of night clubs

Well we can actually directly compare the two if we measure the rate of people who die annually as a result of extreme poverty and how much those numbers were effected by economic growth in various third world countries and then compare how much the rate of growth has stalled in comparison to previous years.

I think capitalism is more beneficial for raising people out of poverty, but I agree that socialism is a more stable system overall and better for people's happiness ( even if it's less productive ).
