"Have you seen what the Antifa radicals have been doing to these helpless symbols of white supremacy? I mean, 'our heritage'? It's disgusting. They've thrown paint on them, pulled them down, even moved one into the corner of my office," Trump complained until being told he was pointing at Mike Pence.
Trump's solution is so like what happened during the Black Plague: Trump hasn't a solution, nor a clue; no more than his 14th. Century counterparts did, so he has a 'genius' solution: let all the infected die! Everyone left will be winners. "YOU WANT TO BE A WINNER, DON'T YOU?
A real man stands up to his adversaries; he makes them eat their words. Be a real man and do the best testing, the best contract tracing, and slow down/contain the deaths in the best way possible, that only you can do. Show them that you are the only one who can fix it; stand up and fix it.
It appears that we may have made a series of critically false assumptions in the comparison to influenza, which this “novel coronavirus” is clearly not. Yet the idea of seasonal “waves” of infection persisted, a presumed lull in the summer heat, followed by a “second wave” in the fall – just like the flu. But COVID-19 had other plans.
Why would anyone want to place the blame in China, on the other side of the world? Who would benefit from chaos? Who always scapegoats? Let's see? Who should we ask? Who is irresponsible enough to kill a hundred thousand for a diversion that would allow him to eventually declare martial law, and finally suspend the Constitution? That's a tough one!
It wasn't wishful, or "aspirational" thinking that made Trump lie in the first days of this epidemic. Lies that may eventually kill millions. Maybe it's because Mafia thugs always lie - it's the air that they breathe. Maybe human life is of no value, according to Trump. It really doesn't matter. Maybe there's no reason, and Trump is insane.
Interconnectedness isn't just philosophy, it is the way of the Universe. Balance, harmony, co-existence; they aren't social experimentation. They are survival gear. Balance! If all those billions of species aren't in balance, then the system goes haywire, and previously HARMLESS viruses unite and turn deadly.
This week, Trump mused about using insulin without a professional medical diagnosis, as a general preventive. Once again it has to be said, "the man will kill and kill, out of stupidity, until he is stopped!"
Chloroquine is a rampant public health problem in India - it is yet another drug epidemic in itself. And it is poised to hit the United States; especially after the American president's endorsement by planetary dispatch.
So, if you grab every book on the subject of Epidemiology that you can get your grubby hands on, and erase everything relating to pandemics; then viruses don't exist anymore, right? That seems to have been Trump's only strategy, figuratively speaking - the only thing he could come up with, during the first stage of the Coronavirus Global Pandemic.
