I’m coming to the opinion that those who are risking getting coronavirus are serving humanity. If the riots are doing any good, that’s it. Same for political rallies (a slow riot?) or any other gathering.
Maybe it’s not good for individuals who are under greater risk of dying from it, but this thing is going to have to run its course. The only way that’s going to happen is if most people get it– and if the experts are right (Ha!) and immunity doesn’t last long, most people are going to have to get it at roughly the same time to take away its power.
In fact, it’s probably our responsibility to get out there regardless of the risks (if any).
It seems Covid-19 has already lost most of its power to kill. Until the past couple of days, none of the 3 counties in various parts of the country I’d been watching with personal interest had had a new death attributed to coronavirus in 3 or 4 months. That’s right– three or four months. Even as reported cases of the disease have skyrocketed. That ought to tell you something.
Even the two deaths which suddenly showed up after the long “dry spell” are suspicious to me for a variety of reasons. Could my prediction about a renewed push to get people to worry about conornavirus again be coming to pass?
The panicdemic has also lost most of its ability to scare all but the most politically susceptible and scientifically ignorant. Politicians and other political people are desperate for you to stay scared so you’ll give power to the politicians, regardless of reality. Don’t. No threat is so great that such behavior would be a good idea.
If you are worried about the virus, please take every precaution you can. Let the rest of us do what we need to do to make the world ready for you again. Please don’t try to stop us or point and whine about us. Don’t be a karen.
