Don't know who needs to hear this, but most of the world has been living life as normal for over a year now. We're doing great.
If this isn't you, live life as you wish, but please consider that you might be losing precious years of life over basically nothing.
Amen to that! I can't wait until I no longer have to poke my nose to travel though. ;)
But apart from that, life in sweden was more or less as normal for the past 20 months or so compared with many other crazy places.
@h4890 The daily lives of people in Sweden, New Hampshire, and Florida is probably radically different from large portions of the world such as Austria, Australia, New York, California, etc.
Oh yes... that is sad. So unnecessary. =( But yes, and I tried the authoritarian eastern european version as well, and it was/is a horrible experience. Fortunately for now, planes are flying again so relative freedom is only 60 minutes away.
@h4890 I'll have to visit Sweden at some point in the future, at least that's a guaranteed destination without nonsense restrictions.
Well, there is nothing guaranteed these days, but at the moment only cultural events with 100+ people are closed to people without corona passports. Since that is not a big interest of mine, I'm not affected, but if you are, you should know that sweden is just like the rest of europe in that respect.
On the other hand, soon spring will be here and then corona will disappear like the new seasonal flu it is, and restrictions will be lifted. Election is in september so (...)
@thedesertlynx politicians do not want to risk the anger of the public before the election.
So if you come, aim for june to august and a trip to the archipelago if you are into nature. I hope I'm here once you get around. Would be a pleasure to invite you for a beer, dinner or both.
@h4890 That sounds good! Not sure how busy that time next year will be, but it's a definite possibility.
Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
