We're at the point of no return.
Things will never go back to "normal" and that's how the powers that be want it. Governments are now in a position to gain massive control over it's citizens One of the ways you see it happening is with social distancing. Governments are pushing this as well as the media.
Social distancing just sounds Orwellian. It's something that could really take hold in a negative way. I understand the need for it but in the hands of corrupt Politicians and the media, it will be used to divide us.
The words "Boomer Remover" were trending on Twitter yesterday. A bunch of young people were saying coronavirus was good thing because it kills older people who use too much healthcare. The fact is the older generation paid for these benefits through taxes and hard work. The problem stems from Government borrowing against S.S. and Medicare. Also, many of these young people want to tweet all day and play video games yet they want everything "free." If they don't work and pay taxes, whose going to pay for it.
This also shows how devastating biological warfare will be.
Whether this is man made or something from nature, the truth is certain and scary. Virus will be made that target a specific genetic marker. You can see the days of smart viruses made of 10 different strains and it switches to a new more deadly strain when you try to stop it.
You can easily start a pandemic by putting the virus in drinks or on hot dog stands downtown.
This is why we needed a global Space Force that wasn't about defense but space exploration years ago. We're primitive when it comes to exploring space and we're a lifetime away from being able to colonize a planet or send people to live on a space station.
If humans don't leave the planet, which we won't any time in the near future, genetically enhanced or technologically enhanced post humans is closer than people think.
At the end of the day, Governments will use this to pit people against each other and gain more control while promising to make things normal again.
