    I swear when I found myself in this “community” that more members than not were aware of basic biology, and concerned with the way humans treated nature, and have been expecting a pandemic for a loooong time, as epidemiology has been saying for decades. I thought this community would have at least half the membership remember a reality where this, like lots of the other problem often discussed, was entirely absolutely PREDICTABLE.

    But soooo many have gotten sooo good at finding “too many coincidences” for it to be anything other than human behavior being psychotic on top of mostly psychopathic. And we project that on to the situation: “no, it can’t be the way we are living that wrecked the ecosystem and f***ed human health, it’s them thar dragons....the evil people/demons/reptiles/whatever” that clearly unleashed a virus so ‘they’ can somehow benefit”

    We live in a structure where the selfish individualism ideology thrives on the fear of “others” among our own species, demonizing cooperative ideals as “evil socialism”, living in harmony with our fellow humans, let alone the only planet we got at the moment is somehow terrible or anti-whatevercountryyouare from to way too many people.

    It’s madness
    You are making a lot of assumptions about people you barely know.

    That's the curse of the internet, you often have to judge people and make assumptions about them based on limited information.

    Your post also doesn't make a lot of sense, I struggled to extract your exact point from it, so why don't you actually say what you mean and get to the point?

    Thanks.

    He's undecided I think, Chris. Like the rest of us. I think donk is frustrated by the lack of clear thinking. You have made some very good points as Aragorn has. I'm just being me, a born and bred middle-of-the-roader. For me, it is always a wait-and-see situation.

    My point is, who did it and to what end, if you are gonna throw out there it is some intentionally made...weapon? Tool?

    I hate throwing the Ockham razor around, but the way humans treat the earth, we were overdue for something like this, according to what I have observed. I could be wrong, and it “triggered” me when you cavalierly contradict what I consider “common sense”

    What assumptions did I make? My ONLY connection to your post was your statements of too many coincidences for it to be natural. I feel the opposite. And “common sense” is getting crazy
    What is the purpose of your presence?

    That is my own opinion as well.

    You are so right, donk. I get called all kinds of names just for using facts and common sense. It's part of the upside down world we're in.

    But we're getting shots in arms now and hopefully things will be looking up a bit.
