There is a little “problem” in Ireland at the moment.
The thing is that it isn’t really a problem at all and in fact could be of great benefit if only the Powers That Be could take their heads out of their arses and just think for a moment.
Large crowds are gathering in our cities and the gubmint along with their health “experts” are having a hissy fit over this. The reason for their hissy fit is that the crowds are ignoring their “advice” [i.e. emergency laws giving the police tons of extra powers]. They don’t want people gathering in crowds and enjoying themselves. Why? The only reason I can think of is that they’re furious at people ignoring their petty laws and are getting heavy handed with baton charges to break up the crowds. Yes – that is what we have sunk to.
Let’s look at the facts for a moment.
The crowds that are gathering are predominantly young people. They are at an age where socialising is actually in their genes. They have been cooped up for the last fifteen months or so and want to get out there, meet their pals and make new pals. It’s what young people do and is an essential part of growing up. They want to broaden their horizons and meet new people. Students goimg to university for the first time are desperate to meet their course-mates.
Now when young people gather there is usually a fair amount of alcohol involved. Fair play. It’s party time to celebrate a modicum of liberty. And when young people get into groups and get a bit tipsy they are inclined to be a bit boisterous. They are young; they are happy; they’re a little bit tipsy and there is strength in numbers. If the police march in to break up their fun, of course they are going to resent that and some will retaliate.
So why exactly are the police being heavy handed? Because the groups are just that – in groups. They are not “socially distancing”. They are not wearing masks. They are not washing their hands every five minutes. They are behaving like normal people doing what normal people want to do but they are ignoring the emergency laws.
The answer is so blazingly simple that it’s laughable. Let the kids alone. Let then loose to mingle wherever they want. In fact they should be encouraged to mingle as much as possible. Hold open air concerts and sports events.
You see, the majority of the so called “vulnerable” are vaccinated. And if you are not one of the “vulnerable” then you are presumably well able to cope with a virus. Of course cases will rise from the mingling but so fucking what? The vast majority will get nothing worse than a dose of flu. In the meantime of course the virus spreads until the majority have been exposed and have become immune after their dose of sniffles.
It’s called “herd immunity”.
