There are many lessons to be learned and the first and scariest is that people are extremely gullible and can be easily manipulated. If I were an Islamic Jihad terrorist, you know the kind Comrade Obama supports, I would be taking notes on how to bring about worldwide chaos. If I were a Globalist aspiring to rule the world, you know, like Comrade Obama, I would be taking notes on how to bring about worldwide chaos.
The world has closed for business and people are in a panic. For ideologues, yes that includes you Marxist/Progressives (Democrats), facts and rationale arguments do not matter. For those that want to look at this so-called crisis realistically, here are some facts and statistics. Those numbers dealing with the virus are from the WHO. The world’s population is 7.8 billion people. Globally there were about 160,000 cases reported with 6,000 deaths. China has a population of 1.44 billion people. They had reported 81,000 cases with just over 3,000 deaths. The United States has a population of 333 million people. We had just over 4,000 reported cases with 71 deaths. In the United States, it is estimated we will have between 22,000 and 55,000 deaths from the flu this season. It appears the actual number will be closer to 55,000.
The death rate, that is of those who contact the virus and actually die is around 1%. This is much lower when you consider that cases have gone unreported. The death rate for people over 80 is 15% and 70-80 it is 8%. Those elderly who have died have almost always had underlying health issues such as heart problems, diabetes, emphysema, or other issues. The recovery rate is extremely high and those who have recovered have reported they ran a fever and suffered from aches and chills.
Yet, the world has closed. Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have called for nationalizing industry, controlling manufacturers and retailers, and placing health care units of all kinds under federal control. American citizens have willingly surrendered liberties. We have willingly surrendered our first amendment protected right to freedom of assembly. Dementia Joe said the other evening that he would use the military to control movement. Governors and Mayors have closed private businesses. The mayor of Los Angeles said that it was necessary because the private businesses were not enforcing proper social distancing requirements.
The people worldwide have accepted the total control of government over all aspects of our lives based on a media hyped crisis that at worst is a very mild flu outbreak. The people worldwide have willingly surrendered their liberties and freedoms and in some cases begged government to control all aspects of their lives. The mild outbreak of the virus will pass, but the government restrictions on our freedoms and liberties will not. We have told government that we will quickly surrender all our freedoms and liberties if they and the media are skillful enough to create a worldwide panic. The friends of Comrade Obama, the Islamic Jihad terrorists and Globalists who are aspiring to control the world population should be, if they are not, taking notes. The coronavirus fiasco has proven how easy it is to create a situation where the people beg the government to take away all liberties and rights and control there every movement and thought.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
