Please Seth, stop putting words in my mouth. This is your conclusion not mine. The Government doesn't need this virus to track anyone by their mobile. I have never implied that, and never would. As I have repeatedly said, I don't give a shit what the motive of the government is. And, don't bloody care. I only care about, BEING FORCED TO WEAR MASKS, FORCED TO BE QUARANTINED, FORCED TO SWIPE QR CODES,FORCED TO SIGN ANYTHING TO SHOP, AND FORCED TO KEEP 2 METERS APART! I also don't like being inundated with VACCINE HYPE. In short, ALL OF THIS SHIT SHOULD BE VOLUNTARY, NOT FORCED UNDER THE THREAT OF FINES OR IMPRISONMENT.The ways the government can track us are almost too numerous to list. Phones are just one of the ways. The conspiracy theory that "they" created a pandemic to track us is silly in my opinion.
If people wish to do any of these things, that is their business. It is NOT my choice as an adult to do stupid and nonsensical things, just because everybody else is doing it. This I resent, and will do everything I can to stop it. Since there are only 39 active cases in Queensland, I doubt if any of them are a threat to me. Especially, since they are in quarantine or in hospitals.
What I am talking about is real, NOT a conspiracy. So stop characterizing my comments as a conspiracy theory. Are you really that desperate?
The only thing that is a 100% guarantee is death. The percentage effectiveness is small, Seth. Clearly you don't care about breathing in air through the sides of the mask. You don't care about the infection spreading through the eyes. And, clearly you don't care about the basic physics of a virus(size). I can only provide these basic truisms, which are all objective and easily verifiable. How you want to rationalize this to avoid the information conflicting with your own belief narrative, is your own business.Shell, I realize that masks and social distancing do not 100% prevent the disease from spreading. I do think the evidence is that they prevent it to some lesser percentage. I don't know what that percentage is, but I do think they have some effect.
So let me be clear here. NOTHING WILL, OR CAN, PROTECT YOU FROM BEING INFECTED BY THE SARS-COV-2 VIRUS. NOTHING!!!
You are talking about industries Seth, not small businesses. We can't have no airlines, no agriculture, no mining, no petroleum, no hospitality, and no tourist industries. Industries will come back in time, but thousands of small businesses have closed their doors for good. And, even if they could come back, what would be the point? They would eventually have to close again, the next time someone test positive to the next manufactured apocalyptic viral threat. But you are entitled to your opinion. Looking at the figures, I definitely disagree with you.I disagree with you that the jobs and businesses will not come back. The law of supply and demand will see to that. People in my area are enjoying doing the things they couldn't do for over a year. The airline business, as just one example, is booming. Where there is a demand, businesses will spring up to meet that demand, and that, of course, means increased employment.
I really don't know enough about China to comment. But you are right, it really is off the topic.
