Will the Kindergartners Show Us the Way?
Friends, grade-schoolers in Denmark are about to return to the classroom! Can you imagine? That's more evidence that those strong-willed Scandinavians are bucking the trend and either resisting the urge to shut down every aspect of modern life, or they are gradually reintroducing activities that were previously forbidden. The Scandinavians aren't known for making rash decisions either, so the Left, which tends to idolize the Nordic nanny states, can't dismiss their unconventional COVID-19 strategies out of hand... The key assumption that the Swedes and the Danes appear to be making is that rational people can be trusted to act in their own best interest, and in the best interest of society, by "social-distancing" and improving their hygiene for the duration of the pandemic. Their view seems to be that shutting down everything is less effective than if everyone simply exercises common sense. Are they right? Scandinavia has just become the world's biggest laboratory. We're about to find out.
