I can understand wanting to treat people with the swine flu. Sure, that's ok.
But to me, there's civil liberties and basic rights that can't be trodden upon. The government has powers to shut down any public event, schools,
transport, pretty much anything that they like, if they wish to do so. That's over-the-top. I don't agree with it.
I would agree with you about nature culling when necessary but the swine flu doesn't seem very natural.
Agreed. Which is why I support efforts to find vaccines, etc... however, I don't see why society should potentially be brought to a stand-still to
stop the 'spread' of the flu.
I'm too much of a conspiracy theorist to think that things happen by accident. That's why I don't want to see governments have omnipotency over
the general population. Screw Krudd!
