    I am really getting sick and tired of this false distinction between “essential” and “non-essential.” Even limited to the matter of businesses. Granted, people need food to live but they can do without the next *insert whatever band you like here* CD. However, for the people who depend upon the sale of the latter to put food on their tables and pay the rent, their business is hardly non-essential. Furthermore, those whose business does involve providing people with things they cannot do without – food, clothing, etc., – they require these other businesses which provide things people can do without to be around, to keep the exchange of money going, so that the entire burden of supporting the country does not fall upon them, causing their part of the economy to collapse under that enormous burden. To save thousands, or at the most a small number of millions, we seem to be willing to risk creating a situation that could kill billions. Are these people really that stupid?

    Freedom of movement and freedom of association are called “fundamental freedoms” or “basic freedoms”. Fundamental and basic are other ways of saying essential. The arrogance of the South Wales Police and the other heavy-handed enforcers of this poorly thought out response to the Wuhan flu both appals and infuriates me.

    There are Bugs Bunny cartoons where he jumps off a train because “we should all avoid unnecessary travel these days,” or something to that effect. That was made during WW2, “the good war.” The governments have been looking for that range of mind control ever since. They’ve finally found it.

    As Gerry says, we will kill millions in our attempt to save thousands.
