Your pretty much bang on mexi :up:
Some may view my politically incorrect opinions as harsh and may be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing. Zero cuckery. You and 917 others hate this post.

The disproportionate response to this virus is why many think something else is a foot. As too the "pulling it off" I would say their are very few people actually in on it. They just get the snow ball rolling and we manifest. An unconscious conspiracy in many respects. A self policing situation where anyone in the bureaucratic structure, academia, media questioning the situation is at risk of financial ruin and ostracization. Where any professional questioning the narrative is scrubbed from the internet by the arbiters of reality at google, YouTube etc. And a nice liberal college girl "fact checking" just as a cherry on top.

Therefore whatever appears on the television screen emerges as raw experience for those who watch it. Therefore television is reality and reality is less than television."

The only disproportionate response is from others who are not taking this seriously. Do you think that the virus cares what country you are in, or what ethnicity you are? It does not.
Act like a people and we will see positivity rates like Idaho: 49.8% positive.

So, if television is reality and vice versa, I want a Baby Yoda for Christmas.

As far as the Covid hoax question, I'm with OKkayak, it's too massive an undertaking to perpetrate a hoax of this magnitude, there would most certainly be people speaking out against it besides quacks, charlatans, and rebels-without-a-clue.

Can't believe there's 5 people on this board that think covid is a hoax.
Truths can be backed up by facts - do you have any?

Isn't that the truth.

For this to have been a hoax, it would require the cooperation of people and establishments who typically don't get along. The reason they don't get along is that they are all fighting for bigger pieces of the same pie.

In order for them to miraculously agree to perpetuate a hoax of this magnitude, they would all have to believe that they were in line for more than what they have now and that won't happen. Someone will come out ahead and no one wants that therefore, if there is no real prospect of everyone coming out ahead, they won't get in the sand box.

The key element is missing; gain.
Praise the lord and pass the ammunition
