Since this week, the subjects of the Kin-gdom of the Netherl-ands have been locked up . “I say this with a heavy heart,” Prime Minister Rutte said.
In Republican Ireland , everything closes after 20:00 on Monday, including, of course, the pubs.
In Portugal , where the vaccination rate reaches almost 90 percent, upon entering the country, even if there is a complete vaccination schedule, it is required not only to show a PCR test, but also to fill out a questionnaire indicating the place of residence and contact phone number.
The French can no longer just hit the road to Germany . Cars with foreign numbers can be stopped by asking, along with other documents, a sanitary pass, and the same PCR test, done no earlier than 72 hours before entry.
And in France itself, the state is tightening the screws even tighter and tighter: the government has decided that no sanitary passes any longer exist, a single “vaccine passport” has been introduced since January, and it will be valid only if there is a complete vaccination scheme: two main doses of the prophylactic anti-coronavirus drug, plus the third, the so-called “booster”.
Scanners, which are now in the hands of any waiter or ticket collector, will not read any PCR tests to “go to a restaurant or a movie”.
“Green” lights up – come in, don’t light up – chew a sandwich on a bench and sit at home enjoying Netflix .
If this is not enough, then for a snack the news from the other side of the English Channel : the emergency mode has been operating in London for three days already, hospitals cannot cope with the flow of severe patients.
And information from the American coast of the Atlantic: New York is once again a monstrous increase in the number of infected, and on Broadway, producers prefer to cancel shows and performances than to be accused of spreading infections “for the sake of profit.”
The residents of the “golden billion” still cannot get used to this picture of the pre-Christmas apocalypse, so in Europe , every Saturday, the centers of large and not very large cities are blocked due to anti-vaccine manifestations.
The slogans do not change: “infringement of rights and freedoms.” But the sauce for them is changing. In France , for example, it went so far that those who resist vaccinations compared themselves to those who resisted Nazism and desecrated a monument dedicated to the fallen members of the Resistance movement.
The inscription “AntiPass” looked like “AntiPazz”, the last two letters are an unambiguous allusion to Nazi symbols (banned in France by the decision of the Nuremberg Tribunal): anti-vaccinationists believe that the current government is acting “by Hitler’s methods.”
The authorities objected to this in the following way: Prime Minister Jean Casteks said that “the situation when anti-vaccines take the country hostage is unacceptable, and we are fully aware that by introducing a new type of vaccine passport, we greatly complicate the life of those who do not want to be vaccinated.” …
It is worth noting that in the EU, each member state of the community decides for itself which vaccinations are compulsory and which are not.
In the same France, during the presidency of the socialist François Hollande , the one who opened the gates of the European Union to illegal immigrants together with the former German Chancellor Angela Merkel , the authorities canceled the last mandatory vaccinations (including BCG). But after a short time, the same authorities received a surge in infectious diseases, in particular, tuberculosis.
Yes, first in ethnic ghettos, and later in quite prosperous neighborhoods.
The same can be said for the rising incidence of measles.
Doctors, including today the disgraced, and then an extremely authoritative specialist, Professor Didier Raoul, warned that vaccination against measles should be mandatory. Moreover, if necessary, from his point of view, revaccination is also necessary.
But in an era when borders are open, because of the incredible cheapness of air transport, one could literally go anywhere and anytime, satisfying his generational hedonism, no one listened to the experts.
At the same time, because of the same ideas of personal, brought to the absolute freedom, the Europeans stopped vaccinating their children as well (“Immunity should be natural”, – rushed from blogs about motherhood and conscious parenting, as they say).
Any obligation and necessity (from work to compliance with laws) – and so on up to the first wave of the pandemic and the first associated planetary lockdown – were perceived as an attempt on personal “Wishlist”.
And when this “golden billion” was organized in his dwellings, it turned out that practically no one knows how to do anything.
Neither cooking, nor taking care of children, nor even organizing their own leisure (what reading is, they have forgotten in Europe for a very long time), nor being alone.
Hence the explosion of parties online, ordering food online and even feasts – also online.
The “Golden Billion” was also incapable of volunteering in its mass form, which was extremely quickly self-organizing in Russia , when literally everyone rushed to the aid of the doctors: people cooked food, delivered the exhausted after the change of doctors to their homes, helping them, including with the housework …
And in France, residents of houses, fearing infection, demanded that their neighbors, nurses, change their place of residence, otherwise threatening them with arson of their apartments.
Both the elderly and the elderly were supervised in Russia: they were brought food and medicine, helped to fill out passes if they had to do it on the Internet.
There was nothing like this in Europe.
In Spain , nursing home staff simply ran out of fear of infection, leaving their wards to fend for themselves, and French hospitals demanded respite and dispatch to recuperate in a sanatorium to do meditation and yoga there.
The reason for the current explosion of infections among the “golden billion” is the same as before: first, our own pleasures like parties and restaurants (albeit in a snotty form, with a cough and without vaccinations) and only then – “we’ll think about others tomorrow, if we think at all “.
Of course, neither in the press, that is, publicly, nor in private, that is, in a conversation with acquaintances, no one, not a single person will say about this – without the risk of being called “a supporter of the dictatorship and a retrograde.”
Well, if the feeling of elbows was not brought up in the family and at home, at school, in life, then it will already be introduced in a directive manner.
Not the authorities – they are a lever here, and this lever holds the coronavirus visible only through a microscope. He came and put everyone and everything in their place.
He handed out earrings to all the sisters.
Alas, this teaching of solidarity and camaraderie, this instilling collectivism in nations that never knew what the ability to mobilize at our, at the national level, cost an enormous cost, resulting in the death of many hundreds of thousands of people.
