MasterVidar I'm interested purely in the covid 19 stats and strategy (or lack of as is the case in the UK). What worries me more are the bonkers rationales for not doing certain things to stop it spreading eg: non compliance with mask wearing as a freedom/rights issue ref: a mask protects other from you, not vice versa, therefore (as I see it) your 'right' not wear a mask extends precisely as far as my 'right not to be infected (which is about 2 metres, preferably 3).
The covid 19 crisis has high lighted how superficial we have all become - we've put our faith in leaders (social and political) that make us feel better rather than advise us truthfully.
In the UK on, at least, 2 separate occasions our MP's have quite literally said - "We don't need experts telling us what to do, we believe the British public is tired of being advised by experts". Then covid 19 hit and suddenly there was mad scramble for the advice of those experts they'd so readily scorned. Bonkers seriously bonkers.
But I do fear Huxley was more right that Orwell with societies current fixations on the trivial, as a discreet panacea to prevent dissent.
I just don't understand why this version of Brave New World portrayed the The Savage Lands as they did - except as a very cheap, and crudely disingenuous, shot at certain stereotypes of America
