A quote attributed to Albert Einstein:
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
Japan is one of the few countries that have chosen not to get admitted into the asylum. The Japanese are cautious to begin with and they have now eschewed the vaccine route, choosing to instead legalize the use of ivermectin for treating Covid-19.
By contrast, Australia has gone off the deep end and has straight-jacketed its population. The U.S. is not far behind. Japan would appear to be a good place to live right about now.
