So it's official. Since tomorrow evening we are all under
house arrest curfew to fight coronavirus. Because like vampire it usually strikes at night, I guess. Last time this measure was used by the invader during the WWII. Judging by the comments on most sites, an average citizen is just about as happy now as he (it, they) was then.
Now I'm not going to fedpost on this blog, as you well understand, but it sure does give credit to various conspiracy theories. I still think there is a better explanation. Many people simply refuse to realise that Western governments consisting chiefly of nerds, women and deviants are getting progressively more incompetent and resort to draconian measures to conceal it. Take vaccination campaign, for instance: we are nearly on the last place, just slightly better than Bulgaria, which is last.
In the meanwhile, Turkey already vaccinated more than 1 mln people. Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
Truth is, corona is dangerous, and its case fatality rate is on the higher side (quite comparable to smallpox, btw). The difference is that 50% of smallpox victims were babies under 6 months, while 50% of corona victims in my country are nursing home inhabitants with an average life expectancy of 2-3 years. The question then arises, is it really fair to destabilise society to keep them alive?
In the beginning I was pro-lockdown, because we didn't know anything about the virus, but after 10 months my patience is really wearing thin and I know I'm not the only one. Yet, when you read some reactions online (I wonder whether they are bots or just so autistic) and learn about young healthy 30+ ers hiding in their own homes since March and hardly daring to visit their own parents, you start wondering about mental health of our society. Of course these are all bureaucrats/ office workers. Am I glad my husband works a normal job...
On the other hand (yes, I'm still trying to be fair) you have people who will deny the virus exists or that it's at all dangerous or talk about Great Reset. Well, as I have mentioned before, I don't know about Great Reset but I know about incompetence when I see it.
Somewhere during the last 100 years the
lords of lies the powers that be had arrogance to decide that they could control Nature and discard old taboos. Something tells me it may not end exactly in the manner they thought it would. Pride goes before the Fall, as they say.
