Avoid Becoming a Statistic
In 1839 Edward Bulwer Lytton wrote the phrase, “The pen is mightier than the sword”. This powerful statement suggested that the press is a more effective tool than direct violence. During that time, newspapers were the primary source of information exposing the actions of the government.
Today, instead of reading a newspaper that was once delivered on our doorsteps in the early morning sharing events that happened over 24 hours prior, information is available instantly just by picking up a mobile device. We are able to know the latest bulletins almost as quickly as they happen and in many cases while they are happening. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, WordPress, Blogger and other social media platforms allow readers to view headlines form an opinion and quickly react expressing their opinions.
There have been more post and comments with a differing of opinions about the current seasonal Coronavirus in a 60 day timespan than articles written during the eras of Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War II, Civil Rights Movement, and Vietnam War in the same timeframe.
One side of the debate on the severity of the soon to be annual virus falsely predicted 2.2 million people would die in the United States by April 15th. They scared people into giving up their rights by ordering businesses that were less “essential” than a McDonald’s employee to close their business. The government tried to appease millions by lining lobbyist groups with 1.8 Trillion dollars leaving 389 Billion for small businesses to beg for just to survive. Their narrative changed from staying at home for 2 weeks to lessen the burden in hospitals to not letting Americans pursue life, liberty and happiness until they can completely eradicate a virus that will return year after year.
The other side of the debate acknowledged that there was a new virus that came out of Communist China, which was getting demolished by the Trade War against the United States. They suggested that the only way we would hit 2.2 million deaths in a year (not 60 days as suggested) from a virus that has less than a .05% mortality rate was for 6027 people would have to die a day. Using logic, they requested a recommendation of those that might be susceptible to the virus with flu-like symptoms and were concerned to stay at home. Then the government could pass a much smaller stimulus to help out those that might actually be unsafe. There predictions of The 2nd Great Depression is quickly becoming a reality as 36 million people nationwide have lost their ability to bring in an income which is more than 1 out of 5 U.S. workers.
Instead, the government from the Federal, State and Local levels have and continues to mortgage our future while the mainstream media perpetuates fear destroying the United States from within. Suicide Rates, Child and Spousal Abuse, Unemployment and Alcohol Sales continue to rise faster than the predicted death rate of 2.2 million by Neil Ferguson and our local County Judges and Mayors.
