“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”–George Santayana, The Life of Reason, 1905.
This quote was prompted by an item in yesterday’s WIND Daybreak email in which the following was noted:
Germany to Place Covid Rule Breakers in Camps
Of all countries, you’d think Germany would know better.
From the disturbing story in the Daily Mail:
… the eastern state of Saxony has confirmed plans to hold quarantine-flouters in a fenced-off section of a refugee camp set to be build next week.
The regional state claimed that the facility will only be used for people who have repeatedly flouted lockdown rules around self-isolation.
Baden-Württemberg in south-west Germany will use two hospital rooms to detain repeat offenders, who will be guarded by police.
In Brandenburg, authorities will detain a section of a refugees centre, while Schleswig-Holstein will use an area within a juvenile detention centre.
