Wants a civil discussion after using an inflammatory, clickbait thread title. Rather disingenuous to start.
Secondly, apparently you feel that your opinion on this matter was so special and unique that it needed it's own thread rather than simply adding it to any of the dozen other similar threads?
As for your argument itself, this concept of it being overblown is vague and abstract. At what point would you consider yourself right, or wrong? If in two weeks, as you say, we'll all realize it was overblown, that implies we'll all have to agree on a metric to define it. Does that mean the daily number of deaths has dramatically lowered? Stabilized? Increasing at a lower rate? 10K dead is overblown? 20k? 25k it wasn't, 23k it was? If Trump reopens the country entirely? Partially?
And if all this social distancing works, and the numbers do drop dramatically in the coming weeks, was it because we took it so seriously? The very thing you oppose could very well be the reason you are right, which begs the question - if things do get better quickly, will you admit that all these extreme measures are the reason why?
