This week, Nic notices that there has been a noticeable change in the political landscape, with the two main parties finally diverging over lockdown policy. But is this a good thing or not?
Certainly when all political parties agree then alarm bells should ring, but if one goes even further, even more authoritarian, will that encourage the other to become more libertarian? Or will it encourage more authoritarianism all round, with every party trying to out-government each other?
We then talk about what could come next. More national lockdowns? Or ever increasing local lockdowns? What about the different tiers? Will they invent any more?
We discuss Sweden, how it’s anti-lockdown policies are being ignored and move on to Neoliberals, who have recently repositioned themselves to align with big statists.
Moving back to more traditional topics, we talk a little about how the left is continuing to redefine language and how that can be catastrophic, before retelling a fantastic covid/whisky anecdote given to us by one of our listeners.
