Wow. At the beginning I said this thing was a friggin hoax. To be truthful I later backed off that; saying instead that it may have been a simple over-reaction. To be truthful, from an academic and scientific perspective, it was far to early back then to say so. But in my guts, I knew something was up.
This is now looking to some like a full blown conspiracy... but that doesn’t sit well with me. For this to succeed as one, there are too many moving parts, too many idiots involved, and too many potential whistle blowers.
How did we get duped so easily? It’s important to know; we just liquidated about 1/3 of our small businesses, crashed our economy for several years, and incurred debts our grandchildren will inherit. Up here in Canada my moronic prime minister is STILL throwing billions around with gay abandon. There is a profit in selling shite to stupid people, and the media is still selling copy and boosting ratings by pushing ever more hysterical narratives. Men that should know better are buying it. So is every box-wine soaked rage head cat lady... because Orange Man Bad, dontchya know.
The obvious neurotics and nutters will be running with this for a long time... but what about the rest of us? My theory is now that this was an unintentional panicked over reaction, spurred by the thought that China might have inadvertently released a bio weapon on the world. While that is now obviously false... it is a useable crisis to use for ulterior purposes for all kinds of shitty people.
We’re being played now, folks. We saw the diversion, now we are going to see the sleight of hand. Keep your head on a swivel, one hand on your side arm, and the other on your wallet.
