Dr. Strangelove


第二次世界大戦中の歌We will meet againを連想させる女王の言葉。辞書でも紹介されている曲なんですね。




女王が口にした「We will meet again」は、第2次世界大戦中にイギリスで国民的応援歌として愛唱されたヴェラ・リンの曲、「We will meet again」にちなんだものと思われる。

どちらの辞書も丁寧に説明してくれています。The sentimental words express hope for the future at a time of troubleとの説明を読むとなぜこの言葉が選ばれたのかわかる気がします。

(オックスフォード )
We'll Meet Again
one of the best-known songs in Britain during the Second World War, originally sung by Vera Lynn and still popular today. The sentimental words express hope for the future at a time of trouble.

We'll Meet Again
a popular song from World War II, sung by Vera Lynn, about people hoping to meet again after a long and painful time apart: We'll meet again, /Don't know where, don't know when, /But I know we'll meet again/Some sunny day.


We'll Meet Again
「ウィール·ミーート·アゲイン」(Vera Lynn/が1939年にヒットさせた歌;1960年にもリバイバルヒットし,映画 Dr. Strangeloveのエンディングで効果的に使われている).

The song gave its name to the 1943 musical film We'll Meet Again in which Dame Vera Lynn played the lead role (see 1943 in music). Lynn's recording is featured in the final scene of Stanley Kubrick's 1964 film Dr. Strangelove - with a bitter irony, as the song accompanies a nuclear holocaust which wipes out humanity.





The value of a human life outweighs the Earth.

The life of a single person outweighs the earth.

The gravity of a human life far outweighs the earth.

こんな言葉が浮かんだのは少し前のクオモNY州知事の“We’re not going to put a dollar figure on human life.”と言う言葉を知ったから。ロックダウンは経済に影響を及ぼすと言う声がある中、3月30日のニューヨークタイムズの社説でもWhile policymakers must sometimes make trade-offs between life and money, this is not such a moment. The American economy needs to be shut down in order to preserve both human life and long-term prosperity.ときっぱり言っています。

If summer is to bring any sense of normalcy, the country’s leaders must act quickly.
By The Editorial Board

Dan Patrick, the lieutenant governor of Texas, took the opposite view last week, arguing that Americans should go back to work even if that causes the deaths of their grandparents, whom he suggested would willingly sacrifice their lives for the sake of economic growth. President Trump grudgingly agreed Sunday night to extend the federal government’s social distancing guidelines until the end of April, but he too has made clear that he believes efforts to save lives will come at the expense of the economy.

This is a false choice. While policymakers must sometimes make trade-offs between life and money, this is not such a moment. The American economy needs to be shut down in order to preserve both human life and long-term prosperity. During the 1918 influenza pandemic, communities that quickly imposed stringent measures not only saved lives but experienced stronger economic rebounds, according to a new study. The message is clear: Coronavirus is a danger to life and prosperity; a strong public health response is the needed corrective.

It increasingly appears necessary that for the next eight weeks, and possibly for longer, all nonessential businesses should be closed, domestic travel restricted and the “shelter-in-place” measures being employed by some parts of the country extended to the rest. Such a shutdown will be enormously expensive in the short term, likely requiring fresh rounds of federal aid on top of the $2.2 trillion Congress approved on Friday. But scientists say that based on what they’ve learned from Europe and Asia, that’s the only way to get the virus, which is spreading like wildfire across the country, under control.

What are the economic consequences of an influenza pandemic? And given the pandemic, what are the economic costs and benefits of non-pharmaceutical interven- tions (NPI)? Using geographic variation in mortality during the 1918 Flu Pandemic in the U.S., we find that more exposed areas experience a sharp and persistent decline in economic activity. The estimates imply that the pandemic reduced manufacturing output by 18%. The downturn is driven by both supply and demand-side channels. Further, building on findings from the epidemiology literature establishing that NPIs decrease influenza mortality, we use variation in the timing and intensity of NPIs across U.S. cities to study their economic effects. We find that cities that intervened earlier and more aggressively do not perform worse and, if anything, grow faster after the pandemic is over. Our findings thus indicate that NPIs not only lower mortality; they also mitigate the adverse economic consequences of a pandemic.

ニューヨークはまだそんな雰囲気ではないですが、今週のEconomistはまさにそのtrade-offs between life and moneyについて考察していました。長引くにつれてリーダーはこのtrafe-offsに向き合って回答を出さないといけないとして、どのようなポイントを考えればいいかまとめています。

The trade-offs required by the pandemic will get even harder
Leaders Apr 2nd 2020 edition

The governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, has declared that “We’re not going to put a dollar figure on human life.” It was meant as a rallying-cry from a courageous man whose state is overwhelmed. Yet by brushing trade-offs aside, Mr Cuomo was in fact advocating a choice—one that does not begin to reckon with the litany of consequences among his wider community. It sounds hard-hearted but a dollar figure on life, or at least some way of thinking systematically, is precisely what leaders will need if they are to see their way through the harrowing months to come. As in that hospital ward, trade-offs are unavoidable.

トランプのニュースは精神的にやられるので見たくないのですが、our stockpileのやり取りはトランプの回答が常識的に見えるほどクシュナーの回答がクソでした。


After saying that states should use their own stockpiles first, Kushner on Thursday said, “And the notion of the federal stockpile was it’s supposed to be our stockpile. It’s not supposed to be states’ stockpiles that they then use.”

And asked what Kushner meant by “our stockpile,” Trump snapped at a reporter, “You know what our means: United States of America...our. Our. It means the United States of America.”


Heaven help us, we’re at the mercy of the Slim Suit crowd.
By Maureen Dowd Opinion Columnist April 4, 2020, 2:30 p.m. ET

From the lectern, Kushner drilled down on his role as the annoying, spoiled kid in every teen movie ever made. “And the notion of the federal stockpile was, it’s supposed to be our stockpile,” he said. “It’s not supposed to be the states’ stockpiles that they then use.”

Our stockpile?

That’s the way the Trump-Kushner dynasty has approached this whole presidency, conflating what belongs to the people with what is theirs. Trump acts like he has the right to dole out “favors,” based on which governor is most assiduous about kissing up to him.


Trump’s son-in-law has no business running the coronavirus response.

動画ではour stockpileの後、クシュナーはこの期に及んで必要性を確かめてからと言っていました。ケチるのも分かります。だって自分のモノをあげると思っているのですから。でも、Yutaにはこの態度が日本政府とダブって見えてしまいました。
