Today, protests are called for around the world for freedom and against Covid measures, which increasingly seem more about politics and loss of liberty than they do about science or medicine. When the communist leader of NZ, Jacinda Ardern, insists that people only get information from the state and nowhere else, its a pretty solid clue there is the opposite of the search for truth. Add to that, the Canadian riding where the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada represents, now is mandating each and every householder to be a state agent and do contact tracing for any gathering on their property, its more Lenin than Raegan.
As usual, the meat of this post will be in the comments. This one is for France, and there will be another post for the rest of the world.
Should any other nation have some surprising results, we may make a post for them as well.
