If so, why all the fearmongering about an economic slowdown or job loses? Symptom #1 of being fine is not worrying. If other people have problems, let the people speak for themselves. Maybe other people is just fine and it's paternalist to assume they're not fine because I know better.
I am fearful for what the future brings, but I would reject the accusation of fearmonger. We are fortunate in Switzerland in that politically there is at least a voice for those who oppose lockdowns, in many places there simply isn't. This is why it is important to speak up.

Across Europe the debate at top level has rarely been whether to lockdown or not, but rather when and why it's too late. Great utilitarian leaders in times of crisis like Winston Churchill were able to take the tough decisions under pressure knowing it meant making painful sacrifices for the benefit of the majority. This trait seems to have been long forgotten.
