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.
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
