Covid-1984: The Worst Of Both Worlds

With covid-1984, which is a virus that is statistically as dangerous as the common flu, we have taken extreme, draconian, authoritarian measures. In short, we have dangerously and vastly over-reacted, and in doing so, we have combined the worst of both worlds: medieval and modern.

If we’re going to go medieval, let’s do it intelligently, at least. We can have freedom, democracy, constitutional rights, plus culture & charm. Instead, we have a gulag and police state, corporate monoculture, and the Inquisition. Brilliant.

So, we’re taking the worst of the medieval period, and combining it with the worst of the modern period. Isn’t that kind of backward from what any sane person should want? I’d say so.

Time for a change.
