Thank you for reading and for your thoughtful response. I certainly understand your points but every day we have experts and authorities telling us things that simply aren’t true or are exaggerated, often because someone stands to profit off if it.
This certainly was a real storm and real threat but we are at a place where fear is so built up that people are not able to understand or make their own decisions which is not a great place to be in as a society.
I don’t think it is black and white which is why I wrote the article. The main purpose of the article is also to highlight the parallels to everyday life and not to justify my decision as correct as I don’t believe there to be a correct decision.
Thanks again for reading!
