Now if we could just get together a small protest group with enough intelligence to understand the math and what E.H. Hail means by that, without real jobs, so they can stay out in the streets for a coupla' months, we could get somewhere with this ... all 43 of us. Nah, I like the slogan, but don't quit your day job.
There are, of course, millions of people who can understand the very simple calculations that Mr. Hail uses to get a low-ball estimate (more difficult to take in other factors that make it worse) of all the life-years lost due to the LOCKDOWNS and other parts of the Kung Flu PanicFest.
In "All Life-Years Matter” — On the Corona-Panic’s social and economic costs vs. Covid-deaths; an Appeal to the Pro-Panic side, Mr. Hail compares the lowest estimate of the damage and basically elimination of social and economic life-years* versus the number of life-years lost due to actual deaths (many only supposedly) FROM the Kung Flu. It's no contest - just in the economic sense, he comes up with the Panic costing 5 to 10 X (30 million vs. 2.5-5 million)** as much.
There are already 24 comments there, so have at it. (I think Mr. Hail's and my Blog-owners/other comment ratio is equivalent to Peak Stupidity's. I enjoy chiming in, and I'm sure he does too.)
* That's not to mention the babies never born, as he does, who would have a full life ahead of them.
** No, don't correct my math. I am just sticking to the very low precision of the numbers, understandably so. Writing "6 to 12" just makes it seem like we have enough precision to say "it's not 5 and it's not 13".
