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.
Polish Election: National Conservative President Andrzej Duda Leads, Will Face Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger in Runoff
Poland’s President won the first round of the runoff.
Poland’s national conservative President, Andrzej Duda, will face liberal Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski in a runoff election in July. Duda, of the Law and Justice Party, recieved a strong electoral plurality in the first round of elections, taking just under 44%. Trzaskowski recieved 30%, and will be the sole candidate competing against Duda in the runoff elections.
Trzaskowski favors further integrating Poland with the European Union, and has pitched his candidacy to global liberal western elites irritated by euroskeptic and nationalist sentiment in Poland. He’s attended the globalist Bilderberg Conference, and received a scholarship from the Soros Foundation in the early 90’s as a student.
Trzaskowski also led the movement within the country to resettle thousands of Middle Eastern refugees in Poland during the 2015 migrant crisis, a policy that was overturned after Duda took office that year.
Duda has campaigned on reforming the nation’s judiciary, resisting political imperatives from unelected European Union bureaucrats in Brussels(without calling for the Eastern European nation to leave the EU), and opposition to attempts to promote a western-style cultural agenda in Poland. Duda has spoken against the promotion of homosexual ideology in the country, comparing the previous generation’s experiences living under communism to the liberal agenda. “They didn’t fight for this so that a new ideology would appear that is even more destructive,” said Duda in a campaign rally earlier this month.
Various other political parties competed in the first round elections, including other right-wing and conservative parties, who marshaled approximately 9% of the vote combined. If Duda can unite voters inclined to vote for parties to the right of Law and Justice, he stands a strong chance to cruise to an easy victory with more than 50% of the vote.
