The Society will Strike Back, or are the Swedish too Dumb?

Politics / Social Issues Apr 13, 2020 - 04:22 PM GMT

By: Submissions

Politics I first wrote about a contact tracing surveillance app on mobile phones on 6th April 2020. Six days later, on the 12th April Apple and Google announce their cooperation to develop such app. Apart from the fact the authorities will never let a tech company to store such sensitive information the fundamental problem with Google and Apple plan is the fact that a government will not accept a disease carrier individual to freely and anonymously pass a disease to others in society. It is against the fundamental responsibility of each sovereign state to keep health and well being of society. It is highly naive if Apple or Google thinks that the state will not get involved and will have a closed eye on the control of such sensitive information. As I stated before we will move eventually more to a full implementation of a state contact tracing (surveillance) plan.



But so far, all the actions to curb the momentum change of the disease in society was from the officials, can an action occur without a counter action? You may have learned from your years at school the third Newton law of forces in a system; Whenever one body exerts a force on another, the latter simultaneously exerts an equal and opposite force on the first. Of course, a society is a much more different system than a Newtonian classical mechanical physics system. Perhaps an appropriation analogy for physics of society by Newtonian mechanics in every detail is misleading. However, the bottom line is the society acting as system with strives always to an equilibrium. A universal law of equilibrium is not limited to thermodynamics or mechanical physics, it is a governing law for all the systems in universe.

We have witnessed many times in history how individuals in societies will react to limitation of personal freedom. This reaction in inevitable. It is programmed in subconscious of each individual, which will eventually result in a psychological conflict. The phycological conscious of society might be able to suppress it to a certain extend. The length and severity of suppression depends on each individual, circumstances of each society, reason for suppression and consequences. In current case for example it is highly depending on how good you can motivate individuals the necessity of limitations on personal freedom. But however good your reasons are, the psychological power of a conflict is more powerful. It is inevitable that all mental conflicts will eventually manifest themselves following a suppression period. In a person you might witness a wide range of clinical (physiological) or sociological symptoms. However, here is the difference between society and individual in their response to limitation of freedom. Societies will ALWAYS fight back. No matter how good your arguments to curb the personal limitations are. We have seen it many times in the history of mankind. The only difference is the suppression period. The response is always the same. The society moves towards neutralisation of limitations. First the society will put the reasons for limitations (quarantine) into the question. Later, feelings will take over the sound logic and at the second stage the rule of law will crumble. People starting to malfunction at workplaces and some refuse to perform their work duties and demand better conditions. We already see a manifestation of this in the health care sector. Now it is just a small part of the public news, but it will grow more later. Today, you read in news that in a country, some criminals have cut the hands of a police official or uproar in some prisons.

It always starts with more deprived classes in society as they have less to lose. Eventually, smaller riots from deprived area’s in big cities will develop to bigger riots.

The middle class will become more involved when the second quarter earnings report is out around mid-July to August this year. It is when personal funds, mutual funds, index funds and personal pension funds’ portfolios will nosedive and will provide an excuse to trigger a non-obedience behaviour for middle class. An infinitive quantitative easing program becomes meaningless as the central banks can’t bail out every single entity. 

Remember, it does not matter if you like it or not. It does not matter if it makes you happy or sad. It is the only way for the system to achieve an equilibrium.
