The so called "Swedish strategy" of relying on personal responsibility without lock-down laws and having the authorities policing every individual may only work in countries like Sweden, that has a strong welfare state. When they ask us to stay at home when we feel the slightest sick, we can also do...

Re: Coronavirus

58000 now may sound much, but worse will be the death toll coming from the economical depression that is just around the corner... Another consequence of not taking the virus seriously? We take it seriously. We slow it down. Our health care still have unused ventilator capacity and nurses if it inc...

You put in 2019 as start time. It generated lots of empty days and nights and at the end it seems to have crashed. But now it seems to be up. Hope it stays this way. Fingers crossed!

Putin and other dictators The fact that you might not like him, does not make Putin a dictator. Just accept that russians can have a different opinion than you. :-D That is just pure bullshit!

Re: Hungary now an ultra-right dictatorship: Democracy suspended

Just threaten to remove the money flow to Hungary and they will leave or comply voluntarily.

You can never trust anything coming out of a dictatorship. Only the things helping the dictator to remain in power will ever be seen.
