The final solution is NOT herd immunity. The herd immunity will come when the solution is enforced, hence the immunity. I am certain on this.
Just watch how this plays out. My crystal ball tells me this coming winter, the media hysteria increases again after the virus dies down over the summer. More panic is ingrained into everyone. More self imprisonment, more individual rights removed, more urgent need to find the solution to save humanity.
Panic training a few times is helpful to lock in the perception. I would say end of 2022/first half 2023 is likely when the begging reaps the reward they have been waiting for.
And to add another point about how this could be enforced from another angle. Many will be made unemployed by this crisis. So you want "free" universal income to exist? You want to have permission to travel and go to supermarkets? Well, do the right thing.
Socialism is a good and indispensable thing, just ask the banks and the corporations who live on government bailouts, tax breaks, subsidies and endless amounts of free money provided by the central banks. They literally couldn't survive without it
With so many companies slashing or cancelling their dividends, what will happen to pensions? There is no way pension funds can keep paying out old pension levels with such reduced returns from their assets. Also, won't this keep pressure on equities from rising?
