I'm not saying I disagree, but I do want to play devil's advocate here...It's hard to keep track of what monster said what monstrous thing yesterday let alone a few weeks ago but the horrific idea of "Old people will have to die so their grandchildren don't have to live with a bad economy" was definitely said by people on national TV. No doubt people that selfish more specifically meant that other people's parents or grandparents will have to die and not theirs.
Whenever I hear this argument my first thought is that if we were to transition to that model, what is stopping your parents or grandparents from continuing to self quarantine as long as they want?
They wouldn't be forced to leave their house. Let me and others my age go back to work, and if that older generation wants to continue a lock down for themselves then go for it.
