One only needs to look at China to see a dystopian world. Its cities have become barnyards, its citizens’ farm animals, and its elites farmers and ranchers.
A good example is Wuhan, where people are being treated like farm animals due to the coronavirus. They have been herded into their corals for the good of the ranch, and just like farm animals, they will be culled (left to die) if it gets out of hand. Their loss deemed acceptable by all those not affected.
I would suggest a better way.
The citizens of Wuhan should have been given immediate support and factual information. They should have been included in a plan that would save them and their fellow citizens throughout the country.
Each citizen should have been given protective gear and asked to stay home. If they did not have a phone, they should have been given one, so they could keep in touch with family and friends.
Then, food deliveries should have been made to each home, and medical checks by nurses, if requested, should have also been available. This would have emptied hospitals and stores, making everyone safer.
Their rent and mortgage bills should have also be suspended for the duration of the event along with other bills. This would make staying home feasible and encourage them to stay there. People treated in this way would have felt patriotic and safe at home instead of on the run, scared of their government and fellow citizens.
In return, other cities and countries could ban or quarantine them for a set number of days before entering if they choose, but no one should be prohibited from leaving any citied in which they feel threatened.
What do you think? I would love to get feedback on this topic.
