Over the many years, we have personally met some individuals with great Wisdom and have read about a few more. The infrequency of such events says much about society-at-large, and even more about countries’ ‘Leaders”, as we have written. “Leaders” who really are “Leaders” and not mere ‘Job Position Occupants’ are rare birds. Functionally, “Leaders” effects are can be felt far and wide. As to a subject such as the current Influenza Coronavirus [CV 19], many of these people are judicious with mandating restrictions towards slowing its spread. They understand the mental toil of the masses in ‘locking down’ their countries. Also, they can mentally grasp the economic disasters which come with such Draconian measures.
Dr. Walter E. Williams, a Economist of high repute, understood, before his passing, of the high cost of fighting ‘holograms of chaos’; like those artificially attached to Influenzas. He was aware of the foolishness perpetrated by vested interests in making recurring human health events cataclysmic in stature. To wit: More than 50,000 scientists and doctors, as well as more than 682,000 ordinary people, have signed the Great Barrington Declaration denouncing ‘lock-downs’. Yet, to many of the world’s politicians, ‘lock-downs’ are the answer. When one considers the assaults, batteries, homicides, rapes, and suicides along with illegal drug consumption increases, caused by such regulations, CV 19 is expensive to countries. When the added cost of lost countries’ revenues are added in, the expense is exorbitant.
Lock-downs DO NOT PROVIDE NATURAL IMMUNIZATION to a country’s citizenry. It does prolong their possible susceptibility to CV19 when they go out into the world. Until a effective vaccine, which produces ‘long-term immunization’ to a country’s masses, is injected into all, and pertinent antibodies mature, every non-naturally immunized citizen is at risk. Those citizens eventually coming out of their ‘caves’ being particularly so. Since CV19 virions are everywhere in the atmosphere, ‘cave departers’ will eventually come into contact with them; a ‘V-shaped curve’ being morphed into a ‘U-shaped curve’ [pandemic prolongation].
Reality: Politicians short-term solutions might have sizzle; but down-stream there may also be the stench.
