Did you win the war on drugs before you joined this war, or did you just give up?

I said no to drugs.
They didn't listen.

At this point that seems to be confirmed. Its still disconcerting w/r/t long-COVID, people with multiple comorbidities, etc.

While less people would have died which is certainly a significant benefit, that could have been had without the draconian Melbourne model.

Certainly possible. To me it was surprising that the Rs were liberal on COVID and the Ds conservative. Tells a lot about the sad that of politics in America and how it cripples us a nation.

We were never going to be Melbourne like, but Toronto was certainly a possibility.

Victoria has 1,657 deaths out of 6,681,000 people or 1 in 4,032 people.
Ontario has 10,500 deaths out of 14,570,000 people or 1 in 1,388 people.
US has 847,000 deaths 329,000,000 or 1 in 388 people. If we had Ontario's numbers we would only have 237K deaths instead of 847K deaths.

Of course that way over simplifies things, ignores excess deaths and many other factors, but just some back of the napkin numbers to think about.

Generally this might be true but Frum tri-state casualties likely wouldnt have been mitigated much with either the Toronto or Melbourne models, it was too early and at those early stages people were more compliant/careful and what was decreed from above still played out.

Glad to hear that the decree from above only lasted through the early stages.

While less people would have died which is certainly a significant benefit, that could have been had without the draconian Melbourne model.

If only the Melbourne model would have been adopted right at the beginning, I guess the decree might have failed even earlier.
