By now, sufficient statistical data has been accumulated to prove beyond the reasonable doubt that COVID-19 is many times LESS deadly than a “common flu”. Hence, the best course of action by far would have been to do nothing (over and above what is being normally done during the annual flu epidemic) and let the so-called “herd immunity” take care of the problem.
This global panic was created (semi-intentionally) by the Chinese leaders who wanted to use the (still mysterious) COVID-19 outbreak to create the nationwide “digital concentration camp” – something that they wanted to do for many years, but could not quite figure out how.
Hence, the China-wide COVID-19 panic/psychosis was intentional; the global one was not – it became the unintentional consequence of decisions and actions of Chinese leaders.
The global panic made just about all governments take totally useless, incredibly destructive and ultimately suicidal “anti-virus measures” (masks, gloves, “social distancing”, etc.) that in no time delivered enormously powerful blows to national economies and to the whole societies and countries.
The COVID-hysteria, fear-mongering and other emotional and psychological terror propagated by incompetent leaders, government officials and money-hungry media (it is well-known that fear sells far better than everything else combined) have already destroyed mental health of the critical mass (if not the overwhelming majority) of the population of Western Countries.
Mostly by literally infecting them with PTSD – Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Which makes it impossible for the Western Civilization to “go back to the old world” as the latter is directly associated in their mind with the psychological trauma.
Not surprisingly, this PTSD makes (practically forces) the “critical mass” of the Westerners to begin destroying their societies, their countries, their countries and their nations. In short, the whole Western World as we know it.
Also not surprisingly, this suicidal project began in the USA as its population is the most psychologically unstable and emotionally vulnerable (as well as the most entrepreneurial and politically active) in the Western world. And Europe will inevitably follow suit.
For a very simple reason – the Westerners (albeit still subconsciously) know that the whole liberal ideology, the liberal system, in fact, the whole liberal world order failed them.
Not any specific politician (Trump, Merkel, Macron, etc.), but the whole system. More than that, they subconsciously know that this system presents an existential threat to their whole civilization; the threat that must be eliminated.
They do not know the specifics yet (how and why it failed them, why it is a genuinely existential threat, etc.) – and that’s why their protest is so ridiculous… and so dangerous. They only feel (correctly) that their governments chose not the lesser evil (as they should have), but the largest one. The catastrophic and ultimately suicidal evil.
Liberalism is by its very nature the existential threat to the human civilization. For a very simple reason (which the whole COVID disaster proved beyond the reasonable doubt): it focuses on the individual lives, not on the whole society or nation.
Consequently, during the times of crisis it focused (and will inevitably focus again) on saving individual lives… which will rather sooner than later inevitably destroy the whole society.
Killing far, far more individuals and making the lives of others so miserable that they would have preferred to have died. The cold hard fact is the society and the nation would easily survive the loss of even 1% of the population (in reality the COVID death toll is far, far lower).
Especially when just about all of the latter are “net consumers”, not “net providers”. But it will definitely NOT survive the destruction of the mental health of a critical mass of its population (and that’s exactly what is happening)
Consequently, the survival instinct of the society, nation, country and of the whole Western Civilization (as well of all other civilizations and the whole human civilization as well) demands the complete destruction of the liberal system. Which MUST be replaced by the one that will focus on the survival of the society and the nation, not on saving individual lives.
The indisputable fact is that you can not fool all the people all the time. Sooner or later (no later than by the end of the year) the cold, hard, merciless and murderous Truth will inevitably “get out of the bag”. The truth about the pandemic of COVID psychosis.
The Truth that the virus was never an existential threat to the human civilization (the anti-virus measures were) – or to 99% of the population. That in reality it is many times LESS deadly than the “common flu”.
That the destruction of mental health (with masks, “social distancing”, mass panic and hysteria, etc.) is a genuinely existential threat to the individuals, to the society, nation, country, and to the whole Western – and human – civilization.
That from the very beginning the governments should have focused on saving the economy, the nation, the society and the country – not individual lives. That (again from the very beginning) the whole project should have been managed by the military who have exactly the right mentality for this job.
The mentality that dictates that you focus on saving the infrastructure – not individual lives; that it is often necessary to sacrifice the platoon to save the battalion; the company to save the division and the battalion to save the army.
That the problem is not with individual Western leaders but with the liberal ideology and the political and government system built on that ideology. That even if the Western Civilization somehow miraculously survives this crisis (which is highly unlikely) the next one will inevitably kill it.
That liberal ideology and liberal system (“liberal world order”) present a genuinely existential threat to Western societies, countries, nations and people – and to the whole Western Civilization (consequently, to the whole human civilization). And thus they must be eradicated and replaced with the ones that will save, not destroy the Western Civilization.
And that’s where another existential threat lies. The existential threat to the Western civilization that is. Because the Western population (even its “alternative leaders”) has no idea how this “new civilization” must look like. Let alone how to build it.
Consequently, if such vision (TO BE in corporate reengineering terms) and a detailed and realistic transformation plan do not appear very soon, the critical mass of the Westerners (awakened to the merciless and extremely painful Truth) will simply explode in a (righteous) and uncontrollable rage.
And start destroying the liberal system on a nationwide (and even the international) scale. Much like the Americans are already destroying it – albeit this time it will be much, much worse.
I estimate that if the vision for the “brave new world” and the detailed plan for the transformation of the Western Civilization do not appear by the end of this year (2020) at the latest, the whole Western civilization will begin to collapse – and fast.
In a year at most it will be gone for good, transforming the West into a dystopia so horrible that the horrors of Civil War in Russia (1917-22) – or in Yugoslavia in the 1990s – will look like a picnic.
Fortunately, the solution does exist.
