You remember sweet little Orcsi at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic? I was a brave little corona fighter wasn’t I? Full with the program, no understanding and no tolerance for covidiots and badly prepared politicians and shocked, absolutely shocked, about whole countries not participating in the defense against the brutal virus.
Sweden was one of those bad countries. I kinda tried to understand their denial by arguing they are only a few people spread out over a much too huge tundra, so hardly any chance for any Swede to get infected. But, honestly, I didn’t really believe it. Sweden has cities and towns and villages and urban areas like in every other country on earth. Which means there are people … and people means spreading of viruses. 😦
Still the Swedish govt gambled – or they knew better – and didn’t go into lockdown and kept their borders open and normal life going on as far as possible.
Now it seems the gamble played out to Sweden’s advantage!
‘There were five forms of governance that migrated from theory to reality in the 20th Century: Socialism, Communism, Fascism, Nazism and Progressivism. The common denominator among them was unprecedented control and regulation by the State over human activity. It is delusional to think that the Totalitarian impulse expired with the 20th Century.’ - E. Nuff Said
