A series of thoughts about all the noise surrounding the Wu-flu outbreak. This just kind of popped into my brain while I was in the shower, but this
is the crux of it:
I followed this closely for a while, mostly listening to analysis from Dr. John Campbell and Chris Martensen. I haven't heard any single analysis
based on this perspective, but what I'm thinking is an amalgamation of everything I've absorbed.
It occurs to me that there are actually four different but closely connected waves of events that have the outbreak as their epicenter, kind of like
N, S, E and W tsunamis from one quake. Each picks up it's momentum from the epicenter and the energy of each is related to the others, but each is
separate, travels over a different oceanic topography, and threatens landfall on a different terrain, so each warrants a different response. It seems
to me that the different waves are mixed up in the media and most people's minds and this exacerbates our response and state of mind.
The waves are:
1. The epidimiological event, being the actual virus and its effects on the health and medical field.
2. The social wave, being the way the epidemic/pandemic effects society and the way people react to it in the context of community.
3. The economic event, being its effects on commerce, supply, demand, the markets, etc.
4. The political wave, being the way that governments respond, whether to actually protect their people or to take advantage of it as a useful (
manufactured or inflated) crisis to further agendas.
If you think about it, these are, as I said, four very different but very related areas that should be viewed separately while keeping in mind their
The epidimiological wave is pretty scary taken on it's own. This is the virus and its resulting effects on the health of individuals and society as a
whole, as well as the effect of the wave of illnesses on the health care system.
The social wave, though, can do much to mitigate the impact and scariness of the epidimiological wave, both in terms of institutionalizing healthy
practices to mitigate spread and in terms of everyone just keeping a cool head and not reacting in thoughtless, fear-driven or selfish ways.
The economic wave is, to a degree, dependent on the social wave. There will be breaks in the supply chain, some goods and services may be in short
supply or even unavailable for a time. The impact on the larger financial landscape need not have a major immediate impact on the day to day lives of
people, though. The way we share and care for one another is what is important here.
Lastly, the political wave is, in my opinion, potentially the scariest of all, more so than the epidimiological one. What will governments do if they
can use this event as an excuse to further agendas that might not otherwise be popular? What are we as a society willing to sacrifice when the
government promises to keep us safe from the boogie man in the closet?
Without commenting on whether this immunological crisis is as bad as some claim, I'm looking at the socio-political machinations connected to it and
the way that ties to the economic.
You see, fear can be a good thing. Rational fear can keep us from doing stupid and potentially harmful tool things. But irrational fear, that's
First, what's the difference between the two?
>Rational fear is generated by your common sense and past experience. It comes from your own head and remains under your control. It is useful and
makes you act prudently. It makes you weigh the benefit against the risk and make sounds decisions.
>Irrational fear comes from outside your head. It is generated and driven by things that seem to be outside of your realm of control. It is harmful
and makes you do stupid and potentially harmful things. Those acts may harm you or they may harm others. Very importantly, it actually makes you lose
control. It makes people do stupid things (like fight over packages of toilet paper in grocery store aisles).
When we - an individual, a community, or a society - allow an outside entity to instill fear in us, you can always be certain of a few things:
1. It is NEVER for good.
2. It will NEVER be helpful.
3. It is ALWAYS about control.
You see, when people allow irrational fear to take hold, they fall under outside control in one of two ways:
1. Either they become so scared and weak that they willingly allow others to take control of their lives, or...
2. They act in irrational ways and give excuse to others to control them by force.
Whatever happens, wherever this goes, do NOT allow irrational fear to be inculcated into your mind. Do not allow yourself to be controlled. There are
entities that want this: don't give it to them.
So now we are here.
The global financial situation is untenable. A black swan event is inevitable. They have brought it to this point on purpose. When you are barely
scraping by or even if you have just a decent nest egg, a massive market crash and currency devaluation is catastrophic. If you are in the top tier of
the few families that control over half the world's wealth, you can weather it and still come out on top.
As the saying goes, in the land of the blind the one-eyed man is King. They'll put out one of their own eyes if they can make everyone else blind.
Create your black swan event, then, manage it and work it to your advantage. I think that this is what is happening.
The immunological wave is being manipulated by the political wave to manage the social wave in an effort to ultimately force and shape the economic
Again, whether this immunological event is as serious as some are claiming, I don't know; but I think that it is being used as a backdrop to a
perhaps much bigger socio-political and economic agenda.
