The UK never tried it. It was spoken of very briefly in March and jumped on by the media but never implemented. Look to Sweden for a better example of herd immunity, they've locked down only the vulnerable and allowed everyone else to get on with it. As it stands their figures are good, much much better than most lockdown countries. Belarus hasn't locked down anyone at all except people flying in (14 day quarantine) but whether you can believe their figures is another story completely so I'd look at Sweden for a more reliable example.the only place that tried that legitimately was the UK and they abandoned it because they realized how bad of an idea it was.
No you can't get it twice. It was proved last week that it was faulty tests that came up positive but has now been dismissed.I live in the UK. Sir patrick vallance is one of the goverment scientiffic advisors. He said on live tv 80% of the population must get covid19 in order to be immunne.
The problems with herd immunity is you can get covid 19 more than once so where is the immunity.
Fair enoughI probably won't be voting. I considered choosing Trump (to support the Apocalypse, of course), but my girlfriend is a "Dreamer" so it would be cruel on my part. I can't bring myself yet to vote Biden though. He supports bringing back the Obamacare individual mandate penalty, which for a low wage-earner such as myself would hit hard (about $685/year). I'm not down with that shit.
That is good hear.No you can't get it twice. It was proved last week that it was faulty tests that came up positive but has now been dismissed.
Are you voting greenNever been one for politics, but I will probably vote against trump no matter what. However given Biden was the best the Democrats could put as their front runner, it wouldn't surprise me if Trump get's re-elected. U.S is fucked either way imo.
@FusRohDracarys I hope not. I am really worried for him. I am not laughing at all.
@ArtySchopenhauer Fight the system comrade.I'm voting for a proletariat revolution.
WELL ... I got half of what I wanted. At least Kamala Harris is his V.P. running mate.If I'm still alive I will be voting for Biden. Honestly he isn't who I would have picked but there isn't any other choice. I would prefer someone younger than 70.
Though I would have been ok with Bernie. Biden doesn't seem like he's all there. A little more than Trump and not psycho.
I would have preferred Kamala Harris or Cory Booker … there were so many, I can't remember all of them.
Especially not that one lady who seems like she was abducted by aliens and brought back because even they thought she was a wackadoodle.
I know some won't vote because they don't like the Democratic Nominee but I will say this. As long as Trump and the Republicans can keep putting more and more Conservative Judges on the Supreme Court and lower Courts the more our rights will be taken away. I don't know if we will ever see Assisted Suicide legal in the U.S. (Maybe never) but as long as the Republicans stay in control we are guaranteed it will NEVER be legal.
I don't hate Trump supporters... I just want to make that clear. I think he's just using them to enrich himself and all his rich buddies while we just get poorer & poorer.
Well ... you asked why. I'm not trying to change anyone's mind & I don't think I could anyway.
Personally I think that in the US, your vote (for President) only matters if you live in a swing state. Think about it. With the way the electoral college works, if you live in California, then let's say you vote for Biden. Congratulations! He was always going to win California no matter what. Your vote is meaningless. Now let's say you're in California but you were going to vote for Trump instead. Guess what? Biden was always going to win California no matter what so your vote is just a tiny middle finger that doesn't matter. And don't even get me started on a third party (lol).
Of course, there will always be the chance for exceptions and miracles and honestly I can see why we have the electoral college system because if we really left it to purely the popular vote then we'd just have metropolitan and urban areas win everything which would just further the divide between those areas and the more rural ones in the country. I also don't think having more parties is a good idea for us either. The reason there are two dominant parties here is just that it makes it way easier that a candidate you prefer has a better chance of winning if it's 1 in 2 versus 1 in 10. Both parties realize this which is why it's not going away anytime soon.
I assume it is not your intention to suggest that male victims do not deserve compassion, or to be listened to. This sort of unintentional insensitivity is an inevitable result of men being excised from the narrative when it comes to sexual violence.I believe women need to be listened and treated with compassion when it comes to allegations of sexual assault/rape.
