Why the over reaction to a bad cold though? ..never made sense to me.
I say let them that are going to die from the virus die, why waste money on vital resources, and spend time and energy on what is destined to die anyway...
Well, there are many ways to frame it. And that's very powerful because the way we frame things drives our arguments/conclusions. I'm no expert, but it appears to me that Covid is in a different category than just "a bad cold". And I certainly don't want to transmit such a thing to those I love, or even people I don't know.
For example, if you had any kind of contagious disease, would you just say "fuck you" to everyone you came in contact with? Don't we care to have some responsibility to not spread crap around?
I agree, but I'm not specifically refering to things like the bubonic plague or something nasty like that, I'm refering to a flu virus that is 99% survivable.
If I ever got the virus myself and my body decided to not cope with it, I wouldn't fret over the possiblity that it may kill me. I guess I'm just weird like that. But I do understand that not all people think the way I do about life and death, so what I say on this forum about anything is always just my own opinion about the matter.
I'm not asking anyone or wanting anyone to agree with anything I say.
I also have my suspicions about this virus, but that's not for me to disclose to others for fear of offending. In my opinion, people like to be parented by their governments, it makes them feel secure, unlike me who parents no one but herself, but that's just me.
Also, the way things are going to change in the world due to this pandemic, has made me not care less whether I live or die anymore. I hate what is happening to the world right now, and look forward to leaving when the time comes.
At the moment our country is in another lockdown and I am adhering to the restrictions like any respectable person would, I'm not a rule breaker, I'm self isolating and loving every minute of it because it is my natural habitat to do that anyway. I'm a solitude lover.
