The New (Ab)Normal?
Friends, quite a few liberals seem to be psyching themselves up for a permanent virus-related lockdown. The state of siege, they say, must persist, because, even if cases and deaths decline, well, they could go up again later! Only when the disease has ceased to exist can we venture out into the wide, wide world.
Here's an analysis that suggests that the time has come to get back to something resembling normal life. It's also an analysis that underlines the steep price we are paying -- not just financially, but in lives lost -- because we remain in lockdown and paralyzed by fear.
Take it for what it's worth, but I'm inclined to agree with Dr. Atlas and to think that we would have been better off from the start if we had locked down the most vulnerable and otherwise gotten on with our lives.
