You're arguing with 20/20 hindsight for a plan that never existed

There is no plan that both maintained individual liberties and protected the elderly. Of course if we had it to do over again, we'd do it differently. The problem is that we were inventing solutions on the fly with limited scientific grounding. It's like playing a video game for the first time. You have no idea what you're doing and unless it is really easy, it crushes you.

In Sweden's case, they took a European nation with many advantages over its southern neighbors and produced worse results both health-wise and economically. Their death rate was higher than Virginia's and they still have significant restrictions. Is that really what we're clamoring for?
