Is the stereotype true about them being unhygienic? I personally have never known any French people, weirdly enough, but if you aren't hygienic or mindful of germs, you'd definitely be more likely to catch a very contagious illness.
Do you think the parents of baby boomers whined so much when the boomers started changing society? And yet the whiney ones like to call young people "snowflakes." Hmm...

Sorry Hunter, but you totally misrepresent that.

"A model - IF we want to get back to a society without lockdowns"
".. there may be lessons to be learned from (Sweden)"

Not a role model. at all.
A model to study.
Yeah, that’s why i wrote “cautiously”. He can’t say “Guys, you f*cked up economies in your countries, but Sweden didn’t follow the herd and did great, better than most”. Obviously he cannot. It’s as much of the truth as you can expect to hear, said in a language of diplomacy. Otherwise he would have lost his seat and comfortable income that same moment.

The virus is not the problem, to some degrees governments are. Your chances of catching it are less than 1% and even if you do the fatality rate is ≤2%.

I'm in the camps of Sweden and Cambodia on this one. Yes, people will die, but this is just nature saying "Hello, remember me?"
