First of all, I think this is an assault on our common sense.
And that is not done by this virus, which I think is an exaggerated threat:
Lord Sumption of the UK Supreme Court:
[quote]“The real problem is that when human societies lose their freedom, it’s not usually because tyrants have taken it away. It’s usually because people willingly surrender their freedom in return for protection against some external threat. And the threat is usually a real threat but usually exaggerated. That’s what I fear we are seeing now”[/quote]
It is done by the world media which is spinning, spinning, spinning…all in favor of a bunch of people in white gloves, who are ushering us into yet another socio-financial disaster, by using the virus.
Statistics are very manipulative. I could open a fast food today, sell 2 burgers, tomorrow 4, and there you go, I’m the fastest growing business, faster growing than Apple and GE together. 100% growth.
In Italy, hundreds of thousands of people die from respiratory illnesses each year. In Spain too. In the US, we had 38.000 flu deaths this year alone. In the world. Someone took these cases, zoomed them in and is now making them look like a cataclysmic disaster.
The fact that 900 people died in Italy in one day does not mean a thing, if last year they had 898 deaths and the year before it 903. The 14-year old boy in Portugal dies…30-month old baby…The first time in the history of humankind? How many 14-year olds die daily? How many babies? They think we are monkeys who can be manipulated.
Monkeys, confined to our homes, asocial. Our psychological health endangered. Subordinated monkeys, among whom each could lose his or her job today. In a matter of few weeks, they endangered the social, financial and health aspect of life for each of us.
To me, this is just a lesson of how vulnerable we are, how easily manipulated.
I’m taking this seriously and am following recommendations, but something is very wrong.
There are around 7.000.000.000 people in the world. This virus still has not infected a million. Now imagine a town with 7.500 people. One man has the virus, and because of him, the remaining almost 7.500 are forced to quit work, remain confined to their homes, start panicking and freaking out and start losing their mind gradually.
Who will benefit? Powerful companies. We saw our own relief bill, Germany is preparing loans and large corporations are ready to go back into the market, with “small players” (small and medium businesses) no longer there.
