I am still waiting for a response to my original point where you seemed to imply that lockdowns don't work. It seems that when you are confronted with evidence to the contrary, you want to go off point.
I am not sure how you consider me "privileged" unless it's in relation to TH, but I am past retirement age, and still working, and my business has declined 70% under lockdown.
Regardless, on the issue of being compensated by my gov, both my wife and I are in high risk groups regarding underlying conditions. Nothing could be further from my mind than seeking compensation for my losses because the gov took measures to protect both our lives.
As I said in my previous post, there will undoubtedly be many business owners who would have died had the gov not ordered lockdowns. If I had to choose between bankruptcy and death I would not be choosing the latter. And as you point out, we enjoy certain advantages in Europe, but if you think a poorer country should not be doing it's best to mitigate this pandemic because of their relative poverty, you are part of the problem, and not the solution.
That's why Thai people are always eating. I packed a bunch of snacks for ASQ and then my S.O.'s mom sent over a bunch of Thai snacks (Thank god for Calbee...) and then when my first test came back negative the fresh fruit started showing up. You just have to set yourself up to eat the Thai way: constantly.
