I see it as folks that think life will continue as it was ( it won't) vs those that are looking to save as many lives as possible given that the economy as we know it is trashed, and going through reformation.
Interesting. I must admit I do not see it that way. It seems far to "black & white" to me. To go with what I was describing, may I ask if you are still actively working or drawing retirement. I am not trying to sideline any argument just understand where people are coming from.
I think (and it seems most people I engage with follow this as well) that life will go on with changes and allowances for the reality of today. That we all need to do our best to protect the population at large, our friends and loved ones, ourselves, but there is no way, and never has been, to do it perfectly. Disease will always forever be something we live with and are impacted by. And I don't believe the economy being trashed, it is what it is, gives an "OK" to not try to not do our best for all people involved, and to help people live and live their lives.
Yesterday, happily, my city just "reopened" local city trails and parks for local resident to walk, exercise, get out into etc. Still can't do group events (duh) etc. but with proper PPE and awareness of appropriate spacing etc. I can again enjoy the simple pleasure of a walk with my family outside. These are simple and small things that are important to me and I think many others.
I am not seeking to reopen everything immediately, just for people to look at what can be done and what can be done safely and intelligently, and what best helps people while keeping the population safe. I also expect people to folow proper guidance and act appropriately and safely. I think you must trust the people, the public to do so, we have a free society and we vote freely and that is the ultimate trust, it is built into the foundation, so you need to allow that.
But that is me. I realize there are many other opinions out there. We just all need to be willing to work together, listen to others, compromise where we can, and be safe and move forward.
