Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Herman asks: Make no mistake, this “virus theater” is all about the destruction of the U.S., if not the world, economy. After which, those with “hard currency” will buy up most of the assets on the (extremely) cheap. This has happened before, in a (presently prosperous) European country. Ordering 20-30% of the population to not earn a living, and printing up huge amounts of currency is recipe for economic disaster, which will make the economic downturn of 2008 look like prosperity by comparison. The only reasonable conclusion is that is exactly the intent. The loss of civil liberties is only a sideshow.* Follow the money.
*except for banning the right to peaceably assemble, and the right to speak your mind. What’s next? Cutting out people’s tongues for “spreading false rumors?”
My reply: Indeed. But the remarkable thing is how complaisant the masses appear to be; their willingness – no, their demand – to be bankrupted and terrorized for certain over a bug they will probably not even get that fewer than 5 percent who do get it will end up getting more than a few days/weeks of feeling sick.
I’m ashamed to call myself an American.
