Interesting thread that graphs the growth of COVID cases correlative to lockdowns.
The point is that lockdowns don't work in America. Perhaps they should - but they don't. They don't work here for a bunch of reasons that don't matter (because it doesn't change the reality of the situation). Further, the point isn't to "look at Taiwan/Australia" and their successes. We are not those countries. You may wish we were like them, but we are not.
Looks like we are negotiating with Aliens and there is a Galactic Federation.
