Lionel Shriver & Brendan O’Neill on you know what

A 90 year old man on my street, a widower, who had been very good about isolating all year as instructed, was finally starting to get out again. He had a doctor appointment and his neighbor drive him – but when he got there they took his temperature and told him he couldn’t come in: he had a slight temperature and needed to get a COVID test.

He got back in the car and said, “I’ve had it.” He went home and shot himself.

How much longer are we going allow ourselves to be humiliated and trained like animals.
