A. CCTV captures moment when, according to efficient track and trace there, an infection was passed. Encounter was 'scarily fleeting':
I watched that press conference a couple of days ago where they made these claims and it was a reassuringly evidence-free zone. Two people passing in a shopping centre who later test positive for Covid is not evidence of anything except that two people passed in a shopping centre and later test positive for Covid. Those flimsy grounds don't justify denying freedom to an entire nation.
It's with massive regret that I've realised just how easily populations slip into authoritarian control of themselves and others. We must all feel baffled at how a modern nation like Germany turned into a fascist murderous state where ordinary bank clerks, housewives, plumbers, road sweepers, politicians and pilots - people just like us - became supporters and perpetrators of all manner of horrendous crimes.
This virus has pulled back the curtain and revealed that we're either collaborators or partisans.
Everyone fancies that they will be a partisan when the time comes, but it turns out that the majority are collaborators and they are just a gnat's cock from being supporters and perpetrators of all manner of horrendous crimes.
Never was the old maxim more true - if you don't stand for something, you'll fall for everything.
