And there we are, flip flop once again. Nothing but the official narrative will be tolerated... no matter they keep changing what that is. What are they scared of  ? oh yea people making their own minds up, being an individual and getting on with life despite the hurdles, now we are supposed to run away and hide on command.. Sad but true. 

 

Just to keep things in perspective, about 100 million net are added to human population annually 60m so far this year, despite the virus ... its NOT a big deal .. even if 1 million die its STILL not as much as kill TB, Malaria or Dengue annually or a bad flu season.. get a grip the world is sliding into hysterical chaos all around the globe and most have bought into the fear porn. it would be laughable a few years ago this would be tolerated by people but now it seems people are begging for totalitarianism, please destroy peoples livlihoods just shut it all down.. RUN and HIDE, lose everything and do as your told like a good little drone like the gov says, for nothing but a virus with a kill rate of less than 0.5%... talk about being weak minded and easily lead. Pathetic.

 

When it all goes into a tailspin and continues to get more crazy and worsen remember who put up with and helped it happen. Because for some reason people are like scared rabbits these days... 

The only people I see spreading fear are those who are protesting for their rights to do what they want and projecting their fear by accusing anyone else who conforms to government advice of being a sheeple. 

 

I see you are using the world population increase as mitigation to any losses of life in this pandemic, I would take a closer look if you want to use that. The are serious problems to come and not because of COVID but this virus will not help. Many countries populations are predicted to half in size.

 

Japan's population is projected to fall from a peak of 128 million in 2017 to less than 53 million by the end of the century.

Italy is expected to see an equally dramatic population crash from 61 million to 28 million over the same timeframe.

They are two of 23 countries - which also include Spain, Portugal, Thailand and South Korea - expected to see their population more than halve.

"That is jaw-dropping," Prof Christopher Murray told me. https://www.bbc.com/news/health-53409521

I have zero issues with people living lives following gov rules and regulations, that is entirely upto them. It is when those people insist or demand mine conforms and aligns with theirs i take issue.   

 

Yes im aware of that study, except that wont begin to happen in earnest for the next 30 years. I found it funny, obvious and of no concern, Russia is already addressing it and other countries by encouraging larger families, which upsets the apple cart of the population reductionists there will always be something to panic people over. 

 

Everyone harping on about not enough resource of this or that,  pollution is terrible blah blah, everyone using and consuming more makes things worse, eco destruction yet on the other side global affluence is a good thing, living longer must be pursued, modern medicine, eradicating disease, abortion is a right, fertility control is a good thing, choosing to be non heterosexual is encouraged, a decent standard of living is expected.. well these things might seem great and logical complaints or aims and they are in themselves but ... much of it turns out to be in direct opposition to the other and there are always consequences  .. a population reduction "should" be good news to most worried about the state of the planet but when you look at the consequences in many ways it isnt.  We cant have everything on both sides of the fence, not unless we get off this ball of mud very soon. 

 

I fully expect population reduction to become the new fear over the next few decades and i wont worry about that any more than I will the plagues that will continue to manifest. Nature restores the balance one way or another.

Off-topic post removed.   If you wish to discuss Sweden, there is a thread for that.
