The Narrative

First, we were going to be quarantined to flatten the curve and make sure that the health system wasn’t overwhelmed.

After that was achieved, we were told we are quarantined until the death curve goes down consistently.

After that was achieved, we were told we are quarantined until the testing capacity reaches a certain number.

After that was achieved, we are now told we are quarantined until there are no deaths at all. Which is never going to happen.

And the saddest part is that the overwhelming majority of people is accepting this narrative without questioning.

  1. Today, for the first time, I’ve had to admit to myself that this really getting to me. That functionally innumerate, scientifically illiterate rabbits are getting to destroy a decade or two of economic growth in the belief that it’s the government’s job to make sure nobody dies – I just can’t. I’m going stir-crazy.

    1. Same here. What’s getting to me is that the criteria we need to meet to get a chance of freedom are insane. There’s never going to be “zero deaths.” Somebody is always going to die of something. And it’s really sad. But that’s what human life is like.
