This will likely be the shortest post since Peak Stupidity's very early days. Mr. Hail, from whom I posted a long comment 3 weeks back (see From Hail to you on the Kung Flu.), just wrote an insanely good summary of the stupidity of what he calls the "CoronaPanic" side of the Kung Flu Gap.
There are some numbers and lots and lots of graphs and tables, with links to the mostly NW European doctors' and experts' videos. I have been remiss in watching more of Mr. Hail's suggestions.
There's no point in excerpting any of his essay Against the Corona Panic, Pt. III: “Just the Flu” vindicated by the data, or, why to End the Shutdowns Now. Take the 20-40 minutes and read Mr. Hail's work, please.
BTW, Mr. Hail's presentation of graphs, tables, and a few numbers is not the usual Peak Stupidity way. We like the shorter and entertaining polemics, as they can be convincing in their own way, I hope. I wrote this, as I anticipate writing a few anecdotes, that, as Mr. Hail says, don't prove anything. However, they do show what this inordinate Police State response is doing to people and how people are rebelling and resisting.
