On the bolded part, why is that surprising? Were lockdowns thought to be perpetually adhered to last March?
The life of a working class man/woman has become work/go home. Rinse repeat. The working class have **** all motivation to go to work if that all life will become for the next few years
Yes but its 8 months later. Many many more will be saved by the knowledge acquired in that time.
And honestly, my life, work and go home, hasnt changed a huge amount. The joys of parenthood perhaps.
But not socialising for a year and saving lives? Sounds like a no-brainer to me.
The people suffering the most are the frontliners, and the business owners. And it sucks. Absolutely. But countries that dont lockdown, economically suffered worse, with higher mortality rates and no governmemt assist for the businesses. Its a no win situation.
