The lockdown and the people

People who have chosen to leave no good word for Dan Andrews mostly because they were unable to cope with what was an absolutely necessary lockdown, should have a look at what Wikipedia has about him.

Dan is one of the best political leaders Australia has at the present time. It needs courage and inner strength to be undeterred and take decisions that inevitable won’t go down well with part of the Victorian population. This is what true leaders do – and what poor leaders don’t do. In a time of crisis, unpopular decisions have to be taken. Full stop. It is just silly and naive to think: Oh, I don’t like this lockdown, it is all too much and therefore it is wrong and our premier is bad! No, it is not wrong and our premier is not bad. Sure, a lockdown is not easy, but it is not wrong. Did we have a choice ? If we don’t want to trust our leaders and their experts, where are we heading then ? Into chaos of course. The inability of individuals who cannot live for a few weeks under safe lockdown conditions cannot be a reason for ending a lockdown before it is safe to do so.
