Larkin Syndrome: perceiving fear, hysteria, panic in every situation

Let's quantify that as a function, the x-axis being the albedo of a
person's skin, y axis the value that the world places on their life.
It varies over at least a 1000:1 range. In some cases, a million to
one.

It's arguable how many light-skinned lives will be saved by shutting
down the world economy; it might even be zero or negative.


The world economy isn't being shut down. Bits of it are being put on hold.
Where lock-down is done right, the lock down lasts for six weeks to two months.

> But the side effects of our shutdowns will probably kill millions in the poorest countries.

In John Larkin's ever-so-well-informed opinion. Covid-19 is likely to kill people in poorer countries too. The inhabitants don't travel as much, so the epidemic is taking longer to get to them.

Quote:
With all the Nobel-prize-wearing economists pontificating in the New
York Times, why wasn't that calculated and considered?


The calculation would have been difficult, the information required to make the calculation isn't actually available, and the estimates generated not really reliable enough to justify investing the effort?

Quote:
Statistically, every life saved by westerners hunkering down in fear
will probably kill many darker people who have no N99 masks, no hand
sanitizer, no beds to hide under.


John Larkin may like to think this, but he hasn't got a clue whether it might be true or not.

> I need to up our donations budget. So should you.

What John Larkin really needs to do is to learn a bit more about the subjects he pontificates about. For that to happen he'd need to acquire the ability to learn, which seems unlikely to happen.

Well known. When I had to communicate with our lip-reading mechanicial engineer I'd trim my moustach back so the top edge of my upper lip was clearly visible.

That sounds similar to what happens when the sound is only very slightly off from the video of someone speaking. I find the result to be very disturbing and it is surprising how often this happens in movies, mainly in videos on the Internet. The commercial providers like Netflix and Hulu are not excepted.

In VLC media player you can adjust the timing of the sound track. Online services haven't come to grips with this yet, they seem to be in denial that the problem even happens. Same with the subtitles only they can be very far out of sync, by a second or two.

That's not what the McGurk effect is about. You show a - very carefully timed - video of somebody articulating one phoneme while the sound track produces different phoneme. Shut you eyes and you will hear one phoneme, open them and you think you are hearing another, and a lip reader would perceive a third (if the sound was off).

You aren't conscious of what you are doing, which is why it great lecture fodder.

>I find the result to be very disturbing and it is surprising how often this happens in movies, mainly in videos on the Internet. The commercial providers like Netflix and Hulu are not excepted.

Sure. We do rely on lip movements to help us understand speech when we can see them - and seeing them happen a bit away from the right time is worrying, even if we can't work out quite why.

> In VLC media player you can adjust the timing of the sound track. Online services haven't come to grips with this yet, they seem to be in denial that the problem even happens. Same with the subtitles only they can be very far out of sync, by a second or two.

Subtitles are a bit more remote from real life.

In Australia lock down - and the associated contact tracing - has been done right. The number of new cases per day is down by a factor of twenty from the peak, and mainly now involves people who should have known better.

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/australia/

It took about about of lock-down to do it, and that lock down is now being being relaxed, in small steps.

The lock down created a lot of unemployment but the federal government doubled the unemployment benefit overnight, and offered a "job-keeper" payment to employers so that they could keep employees on the books - and being paid - while they couldn't go in to work. It's costing a lot of money, but it won't go on for long.

Personal economic ruin has largely been avoided. The political party that has done this is right-of-centre, not left-of-centre, and really didn't want to spend the money, but does have enough grasp of reality to appreciate that it is necessary.

Quote:

If the government imposes a lock-down, it has an obligation to do it right, so that it has the effect intended. The US doesn't seem to have managed that.

It also has an obligation to stop people from going broke in consequence , which Trump and his crew don't seem to want to recognise.

The left wing is all about debate and getting things right.

The right - as manifested by Trump's performance - is all about doing too little too late, and badly.

There's not a lot of tolerance on the left for wishful thinking. The right doesn't seem to know how to do any other kind.

I don't think you will find any health professionals who agree with you. The hospitals are taking much more effective measures than just wearing a mask and surgery uses infinitely more preventive measures than just wearing a mask. Meanwhile healthcare professionals are catching this disease and dying. That's why they were present during some of the anti-shutdown protests.

If the states waive property taxes the states have to bear the burden. Once they declare bankruptcy as Pence recommends they won't be able to get loans through bonds and will have to raise income taxes hugely to compensate for the lost revenue and to deal with the added expenses.

There's no free lunch. The real problem is that we aren't doing enough to fight this disease. As some have pointed out not all countries that have all but licked their portion of the pandemic have used shutdowns and stay at home orders. But they have all used widespread testing and contact tracing. We still can't do that because our numbers are so high.

One thing I know is that if someone else is doing well with something and you aren't, it's a good idea to understand why. New Orleans was hit early and hard, but seems to be significantly on the mend unlike the vast majority of states.

We can throw in the towel and give in to the disease. I just think surrendering to the enemy when the fight has just begun is very much a show of cowardice and not very American!

I guess we disagree on that.

Never let a good crisis go to waste. If you are in business of soliciting charitable contributions to help countries in Africa, Covid19 is a golden opportunity.

Anecdotal evidence is much easier and cheaper to find that population wide evidence of actual or incipient hunger, and you can start raising money long before anybody is actually starving.

John Larkin and James Arthur are very fond of the idea that people should get back to work - and make money for them - even if there is a risk that it could kill them. They seems willing to lie (or at least to deceive themselves) about the risks of doing that in order to encourage more people to get back to work. It's not attractive behaviour.

If enough people took them seriously, the Covid-19 epidemic could get bad enough to kill them too, which would be gratifying, but nowhere near gratifying enough to justify the deaths of all the other people who would die at the same time.

Of course this wouldn't be necessary if people go back to work, but

A perfectly rational desire not to let Covid-19 kill too many people.

You don't desire that outcome enough to do effective lock down or adequate contact tracing, so you have decided that you are willing to sacrifice a lot more lives to get the economy going again.

> Honestly, the logic of the left is often inverted.

Your comprehension of the arguments leaves a lot to be desired. The problem here isn't what the left wants, but what your decidedly right-wing government has failed to do thoroughly enough or competently enough to have had the desired effect.

Your "extra measures" is not going to do the trick. We are already seeing this disease take off in nursing homes where not only are people dependent on others for care, they have no way to fending for themselves. From the Washington post a few days ago...

"Data released Wednesday evening showed that half of Maryland’s confirmed covid-19-related deaths and more than a fifth of its cases were linked to skilled-nursing facilities. That is a higher percentage than in California, where about 30 percent of deaths have been linked to nursing facilities, and in New York, where the figure is about 20 percent."

The people who care for those in nursing homes, assisted living or even just independent living, like my friend, have to rely on outside help for many things. Every contact is an opportunity for infection. If this disease is rampant in the general population it will be exceedingly hard to keep it out of any part of the population.

I agree completely that people need to go back to work. But not until the disease is under control. In most of the US it is still on the increase or at a constant rate of new infections. This is no time to take the lid off and let the disease run amuck.

Pensions are "absurd"??? I forget, which country are you from? I can't say I agree with your point. It sounds very emotional to me.

I admit this is not impacting me at all financially and none of my friends are impacted financially. They are all still working, just from home. It's not like the country has stopped in its tracks and every process has stopped.

If you want to see what happens when people work during a pandemic, look at the meat packing plants in the US. Many have become infested with this disease and management has shut them down to preserve their workers! The workers don't want to go back to work. Every poll I've seen has said in the US the majority supports the shut down.

Of course it can. Technology is great stuff, but we need to be willing to do the right things with it. People are too paranoid about it. We are in the middle of a census right now. What can they do with a cell phone that is any more invasive than that? Same principle, "where are you?" all day long, a continuous census.

To be honest, I don't give a damn about people's civil liberties during a pandemic that is killing people. In the time I took to write this 100 more people in the US were infected and another six died. This is a national disaster and we suspend people's rights during an emergency.

Should I assume you are in the US? I don't really care. The drugs may help some people. It is up to the doctors to decide what is valid treatment. The statistics you cite may or may not indicate a problem and the question is which group has the problem? Doctors in the East still use traditional remedies. Should we be using them too? How about if we do what works?

What is "left" about wanting to limit the harm of this disease? When did medicine become a matter of politics? I think I see the source of your inability to understand the issues involved. You are thinking this is a political discussion.

Isolating and limiting the spread of the disease is fighting, not retreat. The action you support is walking directly into fierce gunfire like Pickett's Charge. If you wish to commit suicide, please do so in a manner less inconvenient to others. I don't wish to be one of the captured, wounded, killed or MIA of this disease and I don't like the idea of you dragging me down with you.
