The Guardian remains true to form as ever – clueless about reality.
The author of this piece, Richard Denniss, forgets that the reason mice die in mousetraps is they fail to understand why the cheese is free.
An extra $1m may not be much to a billionaire but $1,000 to someone who can’t survive without it is way more obscene. And governments that imposed draconian laws on people who could least afford it based on junk science and activist health experts drunk on power, are even more out of line.
There is a precious irony in Denniss’ attack on the billionaires. If he took note of who the biggest mutual beneficiaries of lockdowns were, he would see that many of those same billionaires made the extra millions by hopping into bed with left leaning parties who openly supported the destruction of small businesses executed under the guise of compassion.
Still, it is easier for him to blame conservatives than admit that the ultimate impact lockdowns had on human lives by way of suicide, poverty and unemployment came from policies heavily promoted by the left.
