Trending towards totalitarian futility

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Two weeks ago this post suggested that the UK coronavirus response is trending towards cock-up. Two weeks on we know enough to see an emerging trend towards totalitarian futility.

The coronavirus debacle is complex and there is little point in pointing towards this or that bit of evidence, authority, conjecture or anecdote. We do our own analysis and we try to see the big picture. To my mind the big picture is becoming increasingly obvious. There are caveats but there will be caveats for ages yet. The big picture still begins to seem excessively draconian. Lockdown harm and its potential for lasting damage have become the issues.

Simple observation tells us that here in the UK we have adapted to the lockdown as far as we ever will adapt to it, we have learned the lessons as far as we ever will learn them –

Unless we ease the lockdown.

Because we have quite obviously reached a situation where any further learning and adaptation by the UK population should be via an eased situation. We need to move on and we should do it now and learn whatever there is to be learned. The vast majority of vulnerable people know they are vulnerable and can be relied on to do whatever they are currently doing. It is in their interests to do so and they know it.

Supermarkets could still maintain a controlled shopping routine for vulnerable people – say an hour a day on certain days of the week. Apart from that, all we need is to maintain the flow of information keep the obvious cautionary messages in mind, wash our hands, observe social distancing as far as conveniently possible – but get on with normal life. Normal life will then generate new ideas and new behaviours as we adapt further to the pandemic. It’s called progress.

I’m not holding my breath though. The trend towards totalitarian futility continues.
