Lockdown is a holding pattern that halts explosive spread and buys you time to build a better way of controlling it.

But YOU HAVE TO MAKE USE OF THE TIME YOU BUY. And the federal government and many states...haven't.

"the awful choice we face — between endless lockdown or reckless reopening — needs to be understood for what it is: the failure of our political leaders to create a safer, middle path"

Pitch-perfect distillation from @ezraklein@twitter.com of where we stand and why we're stuck. twitter.com/voxdotcom/status/1

If the fix was in, why didn't he fix the midterms, or the recent Wisconsin election, or the other elections the GOP lost in the past 4 years?

If the fix was in, what was the point of Operation Ukraine Shakedown (which failed, by the way.) Had it succeeded. . .

I have advised people to avoid both @KeybaseIO@twitter.com and @zoom_us@twitter.com for years as both have really irresponsible approaches to security and have refused to address design flaws I have reported in both.

They are perfect for each other.

So many of us stayed home for 2 months - an unprecedented act of solidarity - only for this administration to squander that time and double down on a "plan" that's a mix of "every man for himself" and "die for your employer." This is all depressing.

Or more succinctly:

You're locked in a room with 2 doors.

Thru door A, you lose your savings.

Thru door B you kill someone's grandma (maybe your own).

If you could build a door C that avoided both outcomes....WOULDN'T YOU DO THAT? twitter.com/JeremyKonyndyk/sta

If you want economic recovery (we all do!) you should be DEMANDING real federal action on testing/tracing/isolation/protection.

Until we have that, the alternative to lockdowns isn't economic revitalization. It's ongoing stagnation AND a lot of needless deaths.

There’s mourning in America.

My dad is an ICU doctor treating COVID-19 patients. In the past WEEK he has set more “I’ve never seen a heart rate/RBC count/etc. like this” records than in his decades-long career. What this virus does to the body is like “sticking your finger in an electric socket.” Stay home.

Fun fact: you, no matter what your education level is, could accomplish everything that Elon Musk has if you too were born as heir to a blood emerald dynasty.

He's not special.
