Heres’ the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Tony asks: I’m curious as to what you think the straight dope is about the Corona virus. Is it a real crisis or not? What is behind it all, etc.
My reply: I think we’ll know real soon what the straight dope is. If Corona is something more than an overhyped flu outbreak – serious for older people; a PITAS for the rest of us, but not the Black Death or even close to it – we will have the evidence within a few weeks as tens of thousands of bodies should be stacked up by then, with new ones adding to the pile every week. If something like that does not happen, we’ll know we’ve been hyped and scammed – again.
The question then becomes… why?
I think the answer is self-evident. The enemies of the Orange Man needed a Hail Mary pass as every other thing they have tried has failed to derail the Orange Man. Cratering the economy might just do the job. It also serves the longer term purpose of justifying socialism – officially. We already have it more or less, but not as formal, openly-talked-about (and enforced) policy over everything.
We soon may.
Either way, we will know soon.
