Today I move into a new category, “Life versus material goods”, our State President decrees that if I do not lockdown, “LIFE” we will ‘lose tens of thousands of lives’ I am then forced into lockdown, my business ceases, thousands of others are in the same boat, and millions of informal traders, and unemployed are removed from finding loaf of bread, we have our “MATERIAL GOODS” forcibly removed from us, to save the tens of thousands of lives.
Our State President has no scientific or International Moral basis, to promote the concept that I, and millions of others, be imprisoned, should sacrifice our material goods, that will take some of us, generations to replace, and others, mainly black, will never recover.
The medical / scientists that have guided South Africa through the Coronavirus debacle, Sergio Correia, Stephan Luck, Emil Verner, use research material of Robert J. Barro José F. Ursúa Joanna Weng under the following reference;
THE CORONAVIRUS AND THE GREAT INFLUENZA PANDEMIC: LESSONS FROM THE “SPANISH FLU” FOR THE CORONAVIRUS’S POTENTIAL EFFECTS ON MORTALITY AND ECONOMIC ACTIVITY
the our very esteem researches, make the following findings;
“Pandemics Depress the Economy,
Public Health Interventions Do Not.”
I have no personal challenge to South Africa’s researchers, Sergio Correia, Stephan Luck, Emil Verner, I have challenge to the South African President, for using research material that was still in draft form, one of the President’s women/men, cut and paste the research references onto page 2, of the Proposal for phased economic recovery.pdf.pdf, however, I consider the fact that the President’s women/men, do not reveal that this research document being used, is sill in draft from on April 10, 2020. I consider this to be done with intent, and in contravention of all my Constitutional Rights, and a Crime Against Humanity.
My ‘voice of reason’ always sees ‘cause of action’ with the question, was it done with intent, or just gross negligence?
In the event that the draft research used, had something that the President’s women/men, could have accepted, that I failed to see, I study the document, and only under the Conclusion
At this point, the probability that COVID-19 reaches anything close to the Great Influenza Pandemic seems remote, given advances in public-health care and measures that are being taken to mitigate propagation. In any event, the large potential losses in lives and economic activity justify substantial expenditure of resources to attempt to limit the damage. In effect, countries have been pursuing a policy of lowering real GDP—particularly as it relates to travel and commerce—as a way of curbing the spread of the disease. There is clearly a difficult tradeoff here concerning lives versus material goods, with very little discussion about how this tradeoff should be assessed and acted upon.
The State President, according to the Risk Analysis and their March 2020 reference, tells us the there has been very little discussion about how this tradeoff should be assessed and acted upon, therefore, unless he can show scientific research, ‘I am a Victim’ of his failure.
