I rather think that you fear it, because you daren't face the consequences. But the facts are that this covid-19 crisis HAS exposed the folly of both democracy and capitalism. That's undeniable. If you don't believe me, then ask one of the MANY millions or even billions of people forced to stay within their homes for the last few weeks who have also been forced to close down their working activities.

There isn't a rational argument in the world that allows people to be confined indefintely within their homes and simultaneously prohibits them from making money, which can claim to support democracy and capitalism. If you "doubt it", then explain why instead of parroting a two word mantra. :nono:

Because in most social democracies, public health is a well-established, and well-supported, purpose of government, and recent government actions are a government response to a public health issue. This is literally what governments are for - society-wide coordinated action beyond the scope of any one individual.
