    It's a man made virus, admitted by the US government saying the Chinese stole it. The banksters in America are using it to cover up the US economy crashing and the theft of small businesses. America also wants to take away more citizens rights.

    This is an article by someone quoted in Zakaria's article by an epidemiologist pointing out the dangers of exaggerated (fake) news about epidemics:

    This video is interesting. It is about how the media is blowing COVID-19 out of proportion. It says we are making one bad decision after another. We also risk public confidence in public health and government institutions, if the disease turns out not to be as bad as everyone is saying it is.

    Somebody that I listen to often said a week ago that, as heartbreaking as it is to put it this way, our governments need MILLIONS to die from this virus, or they will look like fools for the harsh measures they imposed, and likely will have lost our trust.

    Well, our betters, ever more clever than us, have found the perfect solution: their over-the-top models did NOT account for social distancing! 😂😡

    Fool me once (9/11 means we all need to be monitored), shame on you.

    Fool me twice (we cannot selectively monitor (profiling) because that would be racist and xenophobic), shame on you.

    Fool me three times (Coronavirus means we must steal your 1A liberties and prosperity), uh, if ya fool me, I can't be fooled again.

    Very good point and I hadn't thought of it. You are right. Lots of death equals success. Not enough, failure. A supreme irony.

    Anyone got any thoughts or opinions on the coming lockdown on automobile travel?
    (Article is Russian, sorry)
    https://yandex.ru/turbo?text=https%3...ews&brand=news

    The biggest part I couldn't get is with this three-stage permission slip system, are they gradually increasing or decreasing the severity of the case travel limitations?
    Cuz from the way it's written, it sounds like it's *decreasing* with each stage, yikes! (First only people are allowed to travel to work, then additionally people will be allowed to travel for other reasons, then interregional travel will be allowed).

    It looks like it makes perfect sense.

    It seem to be gradually decreasing as things get better. Of course, if this is true, it left out the very first step, which is complete lockdown. No leaving buildings. No driving at all. etc. In fact, it looks like many of the things that were in a grey area are now going to be restricted, like medical doctors that only preform beauty-enhancements, ie plastic surgeons or botox injectors, etc. Also, this seems to indicate the implementation of the QR code system. It all seems to be there, if we have been following the story as it develops. We just have to read between the lines. The only vague part is the ending, which reads now as "when things get better, we can start to get back to normal".
