New Zealand election: Jacinda Ardern is on track to win
This is a choice between a disease that kills only the elderly in numbers greater than seasonal influenza or economic annihilation. This would seem a no-brainer, but for progressive politicians, it is anything but a no-brainer. Ardern has sided with economic annihilation, which will drive far more young and healthy deaths than would Covid. Sorry, but I have to say this, the elderly will die; the disease is a significant driver of these elderly deaths. This is the natural progression. We should take significant precautions, but the lockdowns will do nothing but delay the inevitable and destroy people's lives via economic destruction.
Ardern is not a hero; she is a coward who is sacrificing the young and healthy lives to delay the inevitable deaths of a few sick elderly by a year or two. Is this really what we have become?
Humans are terrible at threat assessment, probabilities and statistics.
