A Necessary Failing
Countries all over the world are facing the task of making up new rules for their populations in an attempt to manage the coronavirus epidemic.
People complain about them. They are unfair, and or too complicated/uncertain.
I think there is a fundamental truth about any such set of rules. That is that they are either
simple and easy to take in, but unfair,
they are fairer to many more people but are complicated and not easy to follow.
In any situation there are gradations between the two extremes, but I believe it a reality, a necessary failing, that you cannot have both.
Simplicity and fairness do not abide the same universe.
I don't know, a rule saying "Do your best to minimise potential transmission of the virus." seems to me fairly simple and covers what needs to be covered.
Not so easy to legislate for, especially when the rest of this sentence would go against forum rules.
