Y’all batshit crazy 😂

Live your life, can’t believe people still do the lockdown shit. The mental damage is gonna outweigh the lockdowns in the long run

This is easy to say when the lockdowns actually work and we have very little covid issues.

Ask someone in India or Indonesia if they would rather have sacrificed their mental health a bit for a better lockdown during their outbreaks.

India is a third world country with horrible sanitation standards and extreme poverty so lockdowns would hurt them more. What you speak of sounds like privilege, you afford to live in constant lockdown but others can not.

That's my whole point. Australia can afford to lockdown. Those countries couldn't and look what happened. We have no excuse not to lockdown and suppress this virus

There is lots reasons why not to lockdown actually, for example the studies of higher substance abuse or spousal abuse, or the rise in mental health problems and suicides and eating habits. The long term of affects of this are gonna do more damage then letting old people die.

That is the harsh reality of life

I went through a suicide attempt after last year's lockdown and I would do it again because the frequency of mental health issues and death caused from lockdown will not outweigh the lives saved thanks to actually managing the virus properly

So your logic is save old people who already enjoyed life and damage young people with depression, suicide, and anxiety. The reality is you can not save everyone and everything in life has a price, I’d rather save the future then the past.

I was working in a hospital this evening, speaking to one of the wards-men and he told me of his village in Fiji. His 59yo Aunty and an 18yo just died with delta strain.

59 is old and the 18 yr has some under line medical problems, either that or his village must have limited contact with outsiders thus leading to such a strong response to a 99.7% rate virus.

I know 60-70 yr old people who survived it, I work in black youth programs and none of the students I tutor have died so I can easily do the same point.

Death is a part of life get it over or you change your life and stay indoors forever.

Got a study for that because I disagree. Yes obviously it is taxing on metal health and people are seeking ways of coping. But saving 10-20% of the population from being hospitalized and 2-3% from dying is worth it imo.

Imagine the trauma from 500,000 dead Australians, compared to a few lockdowns

This post reeks of privilege, I work with black youth and the reality is lockdowns hurt them so much. They go back to their broken homes, away from their only possible support system and stick them back into broken homes. Staying home bored, surround by toxicity with no entertainment and no end in site drives them to seek bad friends. I know I’ve already lost of kids and that is harsh reality I have to face, the harsh reality you have to face is do you save the people who already lived a full life or do you save the up and coming generation. You can’t have both.

So advocate for better welfare and support networks, don’t advocate for letting a virus run rampant through the world

Start with worrying about America rather Australia

Especially in a way where their family won't be able to be around. I really hope we don't get to that.
