    By the way, looking at total counts to measure impact is silly, because this is still a very young pandemic.

    We are comparing deaths by country, but these are big countries and just because they are hard hit does not mean they are hard hit everywhere. Even the places which have been completely swamped took very restrictive measures to shut things down. Point being that even if you looked at Wuhan and say they lose 0.03% of their population, that is still just so far. If they lifted all travel restrictions in China, there could still be more misery to come.

    I'm not sure people quite grasp the scale of what this looks like globally over the full timeline before this gets under control, nor just how much worse that outlook is if we let the health care system get overwhelmed.

    I'm probably in the camp that what is being done is insane compared to aggressively isolate people at genuine risk.

    I would love to hear how exactly you would achieve this.

    And also where exactly you would draw the societal line of "at risk".
  3. In Topic: Kellanved v Tehol Beddict

    Well, they are smart in different ways.

    The trouble and fun with Kellanved is you never really know for sure what the plan is, and how much of what results is really stuff he anticipated. He clearly manipulates a lot and achieves a lot, but some of that calls to mind the quote "happiness is pretending you always wanted what you got".

    Tehol's brilliance is a fair bit narrower and mostly economic, but is far more measurable in that way, where it is clearer what the goal is and that he achieves it as planned. After he becomes reluctant King, most of the decisions impacting the story are really just going along with the wishes and advice of Bugg (Mael) and Brys.
