Ghostrider Posted April 26, 2021 Report Share Posted April 26, 2021 ^ The fat lady hasn't sung yet on the 'rona. An awful lot of folk worldwide have done and said things they may well yet live to regret (or die regretting) before its all over. New Zealand, and Scotland may yet see 'bodies pile high in their thousands' and there be nothing they can do to stop it.......just like 1918-20. While BJ's remark and attitude may well be 'ill-considered' given his position, it could also be argued that he is just being a realist and that he is being no more 'irresponsible' than those relying on closed borders to keep the virus out of countries and away from populations, or on so-called 'vaccine', which is not a vaccine at all, but a pre-emptive 'treatment' which may knock the sharpest edges off it for anyone that catches it. Both of the latter are completely ignoring that should the 'rona mutate in a similar manner to the 1918 flu and return in a far more deadly wave, it was the populations who'd been most heavily affected initially that in the end had the lowest fatality rates, as having had the initial version that give them a level of immunity against the later deadly and untreatable version that populations unscathed initially didn't have. New Zealand is fooked *if* a more deadly later version comes along and gets in........ At least BJ has thrown the idea out there, that bodies piling high and there being nothing anybody can do about it is still a very realistic possibility. Unlike some others who have no other output than 'we got this', which anybody taking even a speed read of the history and basic mechanics of viral infections and pandemics can see is so much bull. Its smoke and mirrors leading folk in to a false sense of security. I much prefer realism and straight talking, aka. honesty, than sanitised platitudes and implied promises that you know fine well are far and beyond the power of the person or entity making them being able to deliver. Since it got out the 'rona has never been under the control of anyone or anything unless itself, different governments have done what they felt 'best' and its tweaked around its edges from time to time and put us where we are now, whether that's a 'good' place or not, time will tell, and whether those that are being hailed as having acted with sage wisdom in the present will still be so, or be branded fools in the final analysis, and vice versa, again only time will tell. Wherever it ends, one thing is pretty much certain, which characters and nations history judges as the sages and the fools, will be everything to do with luck, and damn little to do with design, as the damn lot are making judgement calls and acting based on something they don't fully understand or ever could.
