  • Covid allowed us all (well, many) to simmer down and pay attention to whatever suited our fancies. For many, it opened doors they never saw through before. It caused unity in unexpected ways. It encouraged us to work voluntarily, sharing our strengths with others. Social media helps us communicate. We begin to resonate, sharing goals. We entertain solutions, never before offered. And ultimately, we carry civilization forward, kicking and screaming, into the 21st century. (A bunch of people didn’t get the memo. Evolve, anyway.)

  • “Start to get complacent” as we come out of this pandemic? I think what will happen is 1) politicians don’t want to spend money for prevention because it isn’t sexy and would anger anyone who gets less of the budget as a result; 2) the pharma and hospital industries don’t want that because they can make So Much Money in health crises and 3) increasing pandemics can help the insurance industry access our “private” health records and thus protect future profits by discriminating against the most unhealthy.

  • Don't worry everyone! Now that there's a vaccine, everyone that takes it will be 100% immune and will no longer need to social distance or wear a mask! And if for some reason you happen to have an adverse reaction to the vaccine, then the manufacturer will take full responsibility and help you with any medical costs!!! Thank god for big pharma!!!

  • I get he's in a routine and theres likely a particular level of depth they get into to research these things in enough time to get the material ready. Too much reliance on propaganda, for example the "wet market' outside of the lab is actually a Fish market with no bats this is not that hard to find out, you just have to dig a bit. Otherwise much of the data is not entirely inaccurate its simply a narrow portion of experts opinions there interviewing, which tends to limelight an issue, leaving in darkness the rest of the story. This is common enough with non medical practitioners however well meaning. Dig deeper padiwan dig deeper

  • I wonder what legislation the USA and other well-to-do countries have to battle such biological threats. In Czechia, when bird flu occurs (usually late winter, early spring), the government collects the dead wild birds, does tests and any breeding companies (eg. they raise chickens in large industrial-agricultural spaces) have to cooperate - the company has to report sudden deaths of birds, the entire collective of their birds is safely hygenically destroyed and the company gets financially reimbursed for their financial loss.

  • FYI: Spanish flu most likely started in America and was spread to Europe by US troops (researchers even believe they have traced patient zero, a army chief who caught it on a duck farm, and who's movements correspond to the first outbreaks). It only got it's name because Spain was the only Western county affected by the early outbreaks that didn't censor it's media due to World War One. In America and other affected countries News of the new disease was suppressed so as to not damage moral. Basically Spain was the first place with a unrestricted press that had cases, but it really should be called American soldier flu.

Yes debt, yes New York City, no animal pets, no tourism to animal places, hatred for folks that live out in the sticks. I mean if you could pick something you actually believe in and weren't just talking shit on what the heck would it be? You used to mean a lot to me now I just honestly have no idea what means anything to you. Sorry spoke too soon your investors must be big tech. Hey let's spend a shit ton of money on tech to track what industrial farming fucked up rather than roll back to what was right in the first place and let's just keep using this bullshit pandemic to scare people into big tech solutions. You're an honest fuck.

  • I completely called it. Last year. No one listened. I wonder what happens if there's a global tech/manufactory/industry shut down for a month? Everyone are back to their most basic, all phones and comps all shut down for a month. I knew it back when the news are counting the numbers everyday, and I kept noticing, places with the most industries, the most pollution, most developed urbanly, so it made sense the cause isn't with bats or snakes, but with pollution. It's an air-borne virus that started in one of the most polluted most manufactories and heavily populated in the world, and they are not letting anyone in to investigate the source of COVID-19. And btw, this is coming from someone who was already concerned about Asians in American society in the future about a year ago. No one listened. Everyone thought it's not gonna be a big thing. Now we have stopasianhate movement. I was watching something about japanese forced labour camps in America during WW2 last year, and I thought something like this, especially the news talking about troubles in China a year ago, will happen. China is already sending troops circling around Taiwan, what's gonna happen next, I wonder?

  • Rapid increase in human population should have been dealt with to begin with. We are uncontrollably growing in numbers. However, we humans never take this issue serious and shove it under the rug like dust. The governments know they cant solve or get a grip of this problem in short term. Instead, it used preferred to be used as leverage in negotiations with pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies, privatized health care systems and more. In fact, responsibilites of taking care of people doesnt end there. Food needs to be provided and this brings new sets of problems like the evolutionary biologist Dr. Rob Wallace in the video says 15:22 Anyone who knows about the rat population experiment should understand that there is too many of us on the Earth.
