Is it a subtle form of terrorism to re-open economies despite risk?

Lots of people around the world want to ease restrictions for economic reasons, but isn't that almost like threatening lives to demand money?

Let's say your maid, for example, had COVID19 and she told you that she needed to come clean your house to get paid, knowing that you would have to pay her to prevent her from coming over.

Would that be like a subtle way of terrorize you into paying her, i.e. by threatening to spread her infection because she needs to get paid?

Obviously people need to survive economically, but don't we need to figure out a way for them to do so that doesn't turn into a game of threatening public health whenever there is economic dissatisfaction, e.g. with the level of government stimulus payments?

Local Costco is jam-packed with staff and customers, yet the local Home Depot was just allowed to open, allowing 100 people in, maximum .

Maid? Unlike you, I have to clean up after myself, do my laundry, put groceries away...

It was just an example to illustrate the point.

Everyone respects a self-maid man;)

@livinglava,
Maybe it's a 'subtle' form of 'terrorism' to 'close' economies?
Have a 'subtle' day

@livinglava,
Duality of perspective...
Every potential becomes, by measure, itself in line with its opposing function.
Every 'High-up' requires an equally opposing 'low down'.

Just the way logic works.

This is not a philosophy issue.

If you really think that closing economies is a subtle form of terrorism, explain why/how in practical terms or don't post about it.

@livinglava,
Everything is, indeed, a philosophical issue.
See how it works?
Please don't instruct me who to be or how to behave - It's a waste of words/time/typing, etc.

On some level, everything can be approached in a philosophical way . . .

But when I read someone claim that economic shutdown is a subtle form of terrorism, I expect an explanation that is at least as clear as the one I gave for how re-opening an economy is subtle terrorism.

I feel you are just obfuscating my point by making a superficial converse claim and not backing it up with any reasoning or even explaining it in the least.

@livinglava,
That's called 'Arrogance'.
I didn't read your OP. I just answered the thread-question.

If you thought that the US economic meltdown (Due to Covid) was a chinese, manufactured bioweapon-based plot.

Would you conside this 'terrorism'? North Korea, Russia, Iran...?

Ok, so you don't understand why I am saying that re-opening an economy is a subtle form of terrorism because you didn't read the OP, nor do you want to; yet you still felt it valid to post.

If economic activity threatens to increase infections/deaths, then the economic incentive to re-open the economy is simultaneously a threat to pacify those who need/want money by bribing them to keep the economy closed.

It's like a strike in reverse. Instead of making a picket line and obstructing the economy in order to demand more money, you threaten to re-open the economy and thus threaten public health to demand the same money.
