    Pardon the interruption:
    Has anyone read or know what will be the criteria for ending the government orders for business shutdowns, social distancing, shelter in place, blah, blah, blah. I do not see a finish line or goal for this to end. Will some governor just take a stand and end his/her executive order or wait for the public health officials to give the "all clear" based on some testing statistic?

    At some point, the businesses that have not been destroyed will decide to open, and fuck the authorities. Then we'll see what happens.

    Did you actually listen to that bbc news clip? I live in the UK and am not a fan of the BBC, but that particular clip was fairly well-balanced and just posed questions. In no way was it clearly suggesting that these measures should be implemented as a solution.

    That British horse left the barn several years ago. They lead the western world in public surveillance. We'll catch up soon. New America's Socialist Utopia update:

    Don't have to go to CA to find a call for neighbors to turn on each other:

    No reward....yet, but that is pretty home grown in TX.

    I wonder if anyone will bother to measure increased death rates from crime and suicide and compare them to the death rates from the virus when this is all over.

    A couple of the groups I belong to in FB, the Shawnee National Forest group, and Southern Illinois Eats (restaurants and such) have their share of people who post finger wagging diatribes about going out for what THEY deem to be "non-essential" departures from the family sheep pen. What's really absurd about these posts is that the trips out for taking the air outdoors and getting food are specifically permitted by the executive order of Gauleiter Pritzker.

    I've said it before, but I am simply stunned by how quickly this snitch on your neighbor thing has manifested itself. Maybe it's all the Baptists here in Southern Illinois.

    No, they need that to collect tracking information and to monitor us to make sure we aren't engaging in wrong-think.

    Indeed.

    How much is Utah still going out? Google knows.
    Yes, it has been well-known for some time that Google and other apps may sell or provide your personally identifiable location/other information to the authorities or to companies like Palanatir that may sell that data to the authorities. It is a loophole; The police aren't allowed to collect it themselves, but they can buy it from somebody else who has collected it.

    Still looking for a good faraday cage for the phone.

    This would be a good time for folks not familiar with it, to read The Gulag Archipelago. If you are one to think "this could never happen to us" you owe it to yourself to read and study the lessons from this book.
