I am Joe's complete lack of surprise.
TRP may be removed on Monday. We'll see what happens. @redpillschool now is the time to spam the fuck out of the sub to make sure people know where to go.
@adam-l That's a faulty comparison using the ancient past with modern society as your examples. To wit, they didn't know about germs or viruses or have masks, hand sanitizer, or any of the procedures and awareness that is commonplace now for people to protect themselves. In other words, "We have the technology." People most certainly can and have gone about their daily lives and reduce the risks of infection to themselves and others by following best practices.
@RealJoeDee The covid19 might or might not warrant a full quarantine, depends on many factors. However, asserting that such a decision if a personal matter, or an issue of personal freedoms, ... lacks perspective, to put it mildly. Wuhan without a full quarantine would be decimated. Medieval villages survived or were burned to the ground according to whether they implemented quarantine or not.
If you live on a mountain on your own, yes, it might be your personal matter. If you live with other people, it cannot.
@Osiris If we're all quarantined or just the high risk/elderly are quarantined, guess what happens to the high risk and elderly. For them nothing has changed as they're quarantined regardless.
The difference is what happens to the rest of us. If you do not want to quarantine, then you don't have to...and the consequences are your responsibility. This concept of freedom and personal responsibility is the cornerstone of a free society, and sadly is something we've gotten away from in recent generations.
@adam-l Frankly speaking, I don't care. People are responsible for their own health and safety. If they want to go out and about with their lives and accept the risk, more power to them. If you want to stay home and quarantine, that's their prerogative as well. Forcing people to do one or the other is the antithesis of freedom. You have to take the good with the bad, warts and all.
Rugged individualism and self-determination is where it's at IMO. Same reason I shoot and carry where and when I can. Each and every one of us are responsible for our safety and you cannot rely on police or others to come to your rescue, especially when the police are not mandated to. This same concept of personal responsibility applies to how we respond to the virus.
I have spoken.
