#1 The comments are shameful "...can die far as I'm concerned."

And wrong, New York for example had more deaths than Sweden.

You cannot stop the world. Lockdown was and is wrong.

#9 "They literally gained nothing,"

Um, is that the correct standard? Shouldn't we be asking if not panicking with an idiotic lockdown led to the promised doom and chaos?

#10 anyone can pick and choose a few examples to create an argument but the disease is more complicated than anybody understands, e.g., Switzerland never shut down and is are doing better than the US; within the US, South Dakota never shut down and is doing about the best among States

#11 As I recall, the original discussion here was around the fact that introverted Swedes are naturally more isolated than gregarious Muslim colonists, and that by not mandating a lockdown the colonists would be afforded the opportunity to infect one another and differentially die off. Did this happen?
