History repeats itself, as we’re often told.
So it would seem with the current utterly irrational lockdown which brings to mind the most famous quote from the Vietnamese War.
That of course was, “We had to destroy the village to save it”, this from an American soldier to New Zealand born journalist Peter Arnett.
After 4 months of coronavirus the global death rate, mainly of elderly or people with serious organ disabilities, would have equated in New Zealand to 25 deaths. If wisdom had prevailed the month long closure should solely have applied to those folk.
The aftermath of the imposed economic devastation doesn’t bear thinking about.
It’s sheer madness.
