Do you believe in times like these it should be appropriate for our government to take authoritarian actions? I.e. force ppl to stay inside or face jail time, enact martial law, etc.

No. People died for our freedom and we should not be so quick to give it away.

You should, but it’ll take a month before you do. Rationale: The best modelling I’ve seen (Imperial College London / WHO report) says 2.2m Americans dead in a ‘do nothing’ scenario. A requirement to reduce all social contact by 75% or more* being the only way your health service capacity isn’t breached by a massive margin ... so yeah, as per the comments here it unfortunately seems there’s too much emphasis on freedom for this to happen soon, but in 4-6 weeks all that’ll be on the news is people dying in hospital car-parks that will look more like a Lebanese refugee camp than a first-world health systems. At that point I’m pretty sure most people will come round to the idea. In the U.K. we’ve just got there. *plus other reductions on-top - just read the report. We’re all bright people, so cut out the journalists and go straight to the data. You can access it on the Imperial College website.

No. That would cause an uprising and madness. I'd like to think people know the risks and are still being safe, but you can't punish people for driving to park for a walk, or pull people over everytime they go to the grocery store. We don't have the police force for that.

Refusing to Quarentine after being diagnosed is different than normal people exercising their freedom and going about their lives to meet their needs. You can't get mad if you dont stay home and catch it from someone else who didn't, especially since many people havent shown strong symptoms. If you go out, you accept the risk.

No. Sets a bad precedent for any future actions the government would want to take.

There are a few steps we should take before considering this. For example, issuing a basic shelter-in-place order / recommendation to all states or making enough tests to test people. We haven’t even tried the easy stuff yet.
