Germany is set to implement the most stringent social distancing policy in the midst of the Chinese coronavirus epidemic, preparing to ban gatherings of more than TWO people.
The policy would in fact prevent people more congregating in more than a pair.
North Rhine-Westphalia state premier Armin Laschet announced the policy in conjunction with the nation’s federal government on Sunday. He cited the danger of “direct social interaction,” explaining that the state and federal governments had agreed upon the rule.
People who live in the same households are exempt from the rule, avoiding an Orwellian situation in which people would be banned from living with their relatives in their own homes.
Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel is known as a reliable liberal authoritarian, having taken a decisive stance against the western conception of free speech months ago. Social distancing policies aren’t too much to ask of citizens in the age of the global pandemic, but it’s unclear how a ban on gatherings of more than 2 people is even going to be plausibly enforced.
The German chancellor herself went on to enter quarantine hours after she endorsed the gatherings-of-two restriction Sunday morning, having been exposed to someone who tested positive for the virus.
It seems it would be more realistic and honest for the German government to adopt measures seen in Italy, where more than 16 million people have been forcibly quarantined in their homes. Such an approach would probably obtain the desired results of the social distancing rules without imposing restrictions on gatherings of more than two people.
If you’re going to let people appear in public, it’s probably impossible to prevent them from gathering in more than a pair. The Center for Disease Control has issued guidelines requesting Americans cease to gather in groups of more than ten people, a figure far easier to regulate.
Socialist Danish Prime Minister Sets Goal of “Zero” Asylum Applications, Citing “Social Cohesion”
This socialist has better immigration policy than most American “conservatives.”
The Prime Minister of Denmark is pledging to work to eliminate asylum applications to her nation, citing the damaging effects of migration from non-western countries and the impact on Denmark’s “social cohesion.”
PM Mette Frederiksen set the goal during a Friday speech at the Danish parliament, the Folketing.
“We cannot promise zero asylum seekers, but we can set out the vision that we also did before the elections, namely that we want a new asylum system and then we do what we can to introduce it.”
Frederiksen cited the criminal element present in immigrant enclaves in Denmark as evidence to phase away the asylum system in Denmark. Frederiksen is the leader of the Social Democrats party, which has broken the mold of western liberal and leftist parties by opposing mass immigration while advancing economic policies aimed to alleviate income inequality.
“One in five young men from non-Western backgrounds who were born in 1997 had breached the penal code before the age of 21. One in five.
It’s nothing new, and that’s the problem: it’s been going on for too many years. Girls are called derogatory things because they are Danish. Or girls are subjected to social control because they have become too Danish. A sausage cart in Brønshøj is attacked with firecrackers because it sells pork.”
Denmark already contrasts with its Scandinavian neighbors through its more conservative immigration policies. The country accepted less than 1,000 asylum seekers last year(in part due to coronavirus travel restrictions), far less than more liberal nations such as Sweden and Germany.
With the Biden administration already working to restart American globo-liberal regime change operations abroad, it ranges from possible to likely that political tumult in the Middle East and Asia will result in a renewed wave of illegal migration from the region to Europe sometime in the near future.
As American conservatives waste time working to lower Jeff Bezos’ taxes and shilling for corrupt oligarchs, the government of Denmark appears set to provide an example in fighting for the interests of its citizens.
