The Coincidence of The Complacency Virus
Not a Conspiracy Theory

It is likely that every serious situation contains elements which reveal our true individual character and our true collective consciousness. It is sadly my observation that we our collectively seriously stupid. We collectively mock care and intelligence. People are fighting in order to not cover their dirty mouths when in groups during a pandemic -which is making the pandemic more of an issue. Americana Postmodernica is delirious with apathy and complacency.

We are so incoherent and caught up in our own feelings and perspective that we cannot even gauge time properly. The incubation period of Covid-19 of up to fourteen days takes so much time that people in fact have a hard time believing it exists or that asymptomatic spread is not possible. The ability to plan for the future is a mark of intelligence, the inability to conceive of the future is a mark of an undeveloped brain, the refusal to do so is, bluntly, manure minded, high horse riding, vainstream media mediated complacency in the form of hero.

Fact: It is possible to become sick from viruses normally due to already compromised immune system.

Hypothesis: Stay away from compromised food and water as much as possible. Choose organic as a start or at least food grown without Roundup toxins.

We are so stuck on blaming outsiders in the 'us and them' mentality that instead of blaming our collective greed and our collective representative institutions we all blamed those we already appropriated as the 'them' or found a perspective that defended the 'us' that we are included in.

Fact: Institutions bumbled our protection from China to Unites States.

Hypothesis: All institutions should not be entitled to secrets or the ability to rule by the divine rite of institutions.

The virus has a mortality rate anywhere from 0.5% to 5%. We simply do not know enough about the novel virus exposure, about who has been exposed, and if the symptoms and or fatalities manifest the same way. Some people have apparently succumbed to strokes and sudden death while walking along, as well as those effected with debilitating pneumonia.

Fact: That people belittle the death of let's say 1% of the population is horrible. It reveals a lack of care so deep and entrenched that people would shrug off the death of one out of a 100 of their family, friends and neighbors. It also negates the large numbers of people who would be debilitated for a short time or the long term.
