3. Interesting take but...

"At some point, people have to be systematically exposed to begin the building of (hopeful) herd immunity".

The jury is still out on whether herd immunity is possible with Covid-19 yet. Or if it will take 2 million dead Americans to get there.

If people could be certain that if you get infected with Covid and then recover you build up an immunity to the virus that would help society calm down. Unfortunately there's still too many unknowns. Too much uncertainty and too little good news.

Until we have reason to be hopeful because there's an effective treatment or vaccine I fear things are going to remain tense for quite a while.
