Re: Creating herd immunity...

As some people can tell you (some older ones here can): Sometimes you wish you were dead if you don't have any privacy. It's easy to do one liners about something you don't know anything about while you lived your life on a fluffy pillow.

Also, think about this if you do the Kool-Aid:

WHO, not so long ago: "China handled the epidemic very well".

Western governments: "Of course we are not China. Of course these kind of draconian methods are not possible in civilised countries. The government of China is bad. Very bad."

And now a (potentially obligatory in the future? Wait for it...) tracking app? Would it be because governments are really, genuinely, deeply concerned with whether I live or die? The value of my life? My contribution to society?

Ah, that's why...
