Pandemic lesson

Looking back at the Covid pandemic and government response to same, a lesson can be learned: Just listening to one voice, that of a spokesperson for the medical system, at the expense of other people in society was a big mistake.

Government response became limited to actions designed to protect the sick-treatment system from being overloaded and infringed on peoples’ basic liberties to go about their business.

The fallout has been considerable, across the world, deepening existing political divisions and causing great harm to the societal fabric.

Next time, the governments of the world need to consult with a much broader range of people before making major decisions on restricting individual freedoms.

The communist government in China is now finding that out the hard way: The normally compliant Chinese population has had enough of government interference.
