And now tomorrows Telegraph is running a piece on how we’ve lost our faith and can’t deal with death…

Like clockwork.

Standard black swan theorem.

Unknown whether the decision was correct as the effects are not quantifiable, and improbable . After time we look back and say “we should have done this” easily with hindsight.

Pressure for people to make enormous decisions with little evidence on small timeframes where the result is how many people die.

Always been an ethical impossibility, do nothing and people die, do something else people die. No option where nobody dies and the stays quo is maintained.

Can only live with the consequences and try to rebuild to a better culture and society, as unlikely as that seems.

Edit: the black swan definer calls it more a grey swan as it wasn’t that improbably, but the metaphor is close enough.

No more protesting against the government anymore; that’s a mass crowd and you *might* spread this virus.

What absolute tin foil hat bollocks.

For ease of reading: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1260784481159442434.html

I found it all rather fascinating.

Choice quote at the end:

It’s nice to be home where I am not seen an over-the-top germaphobe. Here ppl work collectively to get local transmission to ZERO. In France I felt like ppl saw the virus as an abstract lottery, believing they just need to follow govt guidelines best they can & hope for the best.

I'm hoping that means quarantine is negated after all of this? Will be going myself in a few weeks so can only hope that the 2 weeks is better spent doing other things after the short-term pain of that.

ref schools - they're treading on egg shells, being careful not to say it's not mandatory but we heard from the mare's mouth this morning that there will be no financial penalties for parents withholding (they're well aware of the vulnerable parents with genuine concerns).

The plan's are depressing, almost like a detention centre and echo what we're putting in place at work.

We have been told it's 2 days a week. Not going to be with his normal teacher and the done in groups worked out on surnames. So as it stands he won't be with any of his close mates. We won't be sending him back.
Speaking with friends last night with kids at the same school, doesn't sound like many will be going back. But then that could change I guess. Given us till Monday to make up our minds.

Cue me not being glued to this mate. I have other things to deal with, not being paid by the government to sit on my arse, actually still employ loads of people and keeping them in work.

Sorry about that.

And yes to whoever asked before, yes I do believe in god.

Now go to your local mosques when they open and ask them the same thing mockingly. See how long your head stays connected to your neck. Laughing out loud

What’s the nature of your business fudge? Presumably you won’t be or haven’t implemented any social distancing measures?

Ah yes, the classic "I've got better things to do" debating tactic AKA all the time in the world to post things you have zero comprehension of but not time to respond when you're incorrect. How convenient.

So busy in fact, you have time to pen 10 paragraph open letters to 16 year olds on forums Laughing out loud

Fudge, this is in no way an attack on your beliefs, but I'm genuinely interested as to whether you have concerns regarding how Covid-19 could affect your parents or your in-laws. I presume they fit into the vulnerable age group, where it has seen the highest death rate. Do they share the same views as you and are out and about carrying on as normal, even visiting friends? Are you freely visiting them with your wife and child?
