Most all of us have heard our mothers, at some point while we were growing up, ask us if all of our friends jumped off a cliff, would we follow them and do it also? It appears that we have our answer: Yes, we would. Over the course of this year, we have, as a society, chosen to jump off the cliff with our friends.
You see, there is one western nation that has experienced better success than the rest of the western world — but we will not even pay any attention to them. Instead, we follow those that insist that we jump off a cliff, destroying our way of life.
Sweden has not done a lockdown or a mask mandate, yet its infection rate is among the lowest in the western world. There have been naysayers insisting that because of its lack of preventive measures, the country will eventually suffer worse than the rest of us. Though the naysayers have repeated such claims for months, it has yet to happen.
Perhaps we should stop following our friends off a cliff and follow the wise one that seems to still be thriving in this environment.
