Government knows that people will only be governed as much as they want to be governed.And fear is the best tool to introduce changes that will stay with us long after quarantine is lifted.
All those quarantine stats which you can read on news portals are being obtained from mobile carriers who track every sigle device location to draw a map: who stays at home, who go out and where. They are even open about it. Something which would be outrageous just 2 months ago suggenly becomes "normal".
And have you noticed more intense discussions about dirty, dirty cash and how contactless cards are much better and maybe we should stop using that dirty cash? :-)
