Oh my God. Social Darwinism is popular in the USA. Yeah when I was in Texas ALL of the businesses I worked for talked about 'high standards' but they were selling fried chicken. They said "sink or swim! Only the best"If only the best survive then you better change your menu cause cheap fried chicken on a waffle isn't the best of anything!
The food was at such a low standard I didn't understand the amount of pressure put on the wait staff. And they decorated everything with all this fine dining paraphernalia. It didn't make any sense. And they looked down on me for not understanding the 'high standard' of the customer culture. Ignoring the speed and entertainment value of the staff... the food was lowest quality food I had ever been near... mac and cheeze was sold as a vegetable...
I wouldn't call it a Darwinist point of view. It's a gross hierarchy pyramid.
But Americans up north don't like hierarchy. I have been there many times. To Ohio and Chicago and Michigan. I even lived there for a year. The people were all super informal and individualistic and abrupt and, even a little bit brash. And there was, by and large, little respect for authority in that culture.In the South, in small town Texas, people were like "I am a member of the Georgetown Book Club"or "He is a Veteran. he wasn't just sitting around, he was making sacrifices for his country."or "I am a member of the local tennis club. I come here every week"or "I know the owners of this place"or "I am a top tier member of a top tier sorority/fraternity" I found it ridiculous. In New Zealand I served the former Prime Minister at a market, and I met the current Prime Minister and no one cared. I certainly don't care about the local 'Book Club' or 'Tennis Club'. I thought they were so dumb to think they had any status. I thought "so these parts are where the slave drivers were... interesting"
You can't think of the grand total pyramid. It's your grandeur place in your local pyramid that is important no Matter how much ypur being crushed on by the total pyramid.Also America is not one state. It's a United states of America. So it's not crazy to think that things get different across state lines. Those state lines have a chapter of history on to themselves let alone what happens inside of them.
Yeah. Well... to clarify... it felt more like a rejection of the North in Texas. It felt more like... defensiveness and pride.
Heavens above. What is with people?

That's not how it works. Greater density areas are more heavily affected because people live in closer proximity, but if you are meeting each other in person in close proximity, like in a factory or a nail salon, or a restaurant, or a concert, or at a house party, or in the downtown area of your community, then it doesn't matter how far away your houses are from each other. You can be alone in the country side, in your low population density area, in your house, but your theory that it won't spread in low density areas has already been disproven by the data.
lLow pop Density areas and low travel areas have far less cases
Plus in my city area if I go to the Local hair salon for a cut there will likely be 20 barbers there and 40 or so people, but in the suburban area with low Pop Density, the hair Salon had 3 barbers max and maybe 6 customers max at a time.
Okay fine. Go.
It's a known fact that higher pop density leads to faster spread of disease, so lower pop density will lead to slower spread of disease
Okay... that's a lovely idea. But like much of American politics it's completely abstract. What you are saying is NOT what is happening. The USA has very high infection rates compared to other countries. Even densely populated countries. Just because it is worse in high population density areas, does not mean that you are safe from it in the country side. Unless you take advantage of your low population density to NOT gather in large groups.
USA is a Federation of 50 states. New York may have a high infection ratr, but Montana has 0 cases as of April 25th. I don't think forcing them to shut down will help New York.
Just about sums it up
How did you reach that conclusion?
Every single number on every single statistic is fake. Any death that has taken place for any reason has been legally included in the corona death toll. News reports are fake. Networks like NBC have apologized for using the same footage for a NY hospital and one in Italy for different stories. Restricting the movement of sick people is quarantine; restricting the movement of healthy people is tyranny. Someday, everything will reopen and the only thing that changes is that someone somewhere says it's ok to reopen. If you don't watch mass media, NOTHING changes. Nothing did change when this started either. Nobody agrees how powerful it is or how long it lives or what kills it...I don't believe any of it. Fear is the real virus. The Gov't used this whole charade as a test to see how fast they can gain control of the general population and the answer is pretty damn quick. It will happen again in the future; this was no mistake. If you don't at the very least acknowledge that this could all be planned and by design, you might be a potato
