Control Group for COVID-19 reaction

When this is all said and done and we want to compare and contrast maximum reaction to a more moderate reaction, we have our control group for the moderate to minimal reaction.

How does one say, "y'all hold our beer and watch this" in Swedish? It will be interesting to see how that works out for them. Here is an article that is less "rah rah" on it:

...articles should not be written by folks without knowledge of the subject matter... I realize opining on subjects, with neither education nor experience, and expecting an opinion to be seriously considered, is a libertarian trait - hell, I have to fight it in myself - but the reason article is a bit absurd.

Valid points on the economics, but not all cultures can be part of “civilization” - and, frankly, China is proving itself to not be. Civilization cannot work, when it tries to interact with low-trust societies, and treat them as if they are high-trust.
