It's a depressing massive facepalm but inevitable I suppose. that to an extent we did manage to contain or at least limit the spread significantly enough that not more people died, and has been enough to make the shortsighted fools moronically believe that it was all unnecessary.
it's like walking away from a car crash because you had a seatbelt on, and saying well - I walked away from it so I guess I didn't need a seatbelt!
It's appalling to be so ignorant as to believe that this would not have been obviously much worse were we not actively trying to limit it.
or worse to believe that this wasn't, ISN'T still very bad; we still blew it. hard. we're weeks away from 200k deaths, all in under 6 months. but it's ok because they were mostly old people? Hey i'm sorry caroline but you'll never see your grandparents again because some insensitive selfish assclowns wanted to believe a contagious global pandemic to be a weak flu bug - but don't worry about it cuz you were never in much danger personally kiddo!
we handled this so epically poorly, neither saving the lives nor jobs we could have, the only thing we tirelessly sacrificed to save at the federal level was the stock market.
"healthy folk have little to fear", you really that selfish and lonely to imagine that no healthy people know or care about others? Even the most selfish must recognize that people have "unhealthy" friends and relatives they'd rather not see die. fucking endlessly depressing the smug selfishness of some people.
