Didn't the 5G thing start before the corona hysteria? Sure that I saw posts about 5G frying your brains or something, before corona came along...I seen a couple of people posting the same video on FB - says there is no virus its some 5G thing thats making people sick....didnt watch much to be honest. I doubt anything going to happen to these people. Even reported it to FB - video still there a few days later.
Is that all you can think of?Which one is fake:
1. Coronavirus is not so bad, it is the the hysteria that is bad.
2. Coronavirus is bad, very bad. Stock up food and tp etc.
People generally feel the need to share all sorts of schit without thinking it through even briefly.How does one know if it is actually fake as a lot of it makes sense and one feels the need to share "warnings" that are posted .???? Dunno. Should we all stop posting and sharing anything ??? Pray tell us.
COVID-19 has a better marketing department.Let's see now... every year 200 000 people die of flu; the covid19 virus has killed less than 9000 in 3 months. For some reason the government has shut ports of entry, closed schools, and banned gatherings of 100 or more. Who is really guilty of spreading fake news? Where does government get its news from?
These will be the 2 biggest hurdles to something of that nature.What would make sense is if this regulation becomes enforceable on anyone creating/spreading fake news in general. Where is the line going to be drawn between opinion and fake news? What is fake news anyway?
State of Emergency divests certain powers to the government, for limited periods of time to deal with disasters.These regulations are a constitutional minefield. Will be interesting to see how the courts handle it. I wasn't aware the government could just make up criminal offences on the hoof without any parliamentary oversight. Usually criminal offences are created by statute i.e. a bill or act of parliament.
I don't have that need. Most "warnings" are common sense to me in any case.How does one know if it is actually fake as a lot of it makes sense and one feels the need to share "warnings" that are posted .???? Dunno. Should we all stop posting and sharing anything ??? Pray tell us.
