As I’ve written before, the will be no real end to the COVID-19 pandemic in the foreseeable future, not while too many sorts can profit from it.
Endemicity Awaits Forlorn And Forgotten
And there’s part of the problem. The only way that the coronavirus “ends” is with, not the virus, but the panicdemic surrounding it, being subsumed into everyday life and disempowered. But the West, especially America, not only has no known or even inferred for how to get there, certain sorts are actively looking to maintain and manage the fear of this disease for their own purposes, not the least of which being simple monetary gain.
Of course, this does mean that COVID QTs will be with us for the foreseeable future, which is something of a saving grace.
There’s No Plan For “Victory”
To be clear, I in no way mean or believe in the possibility of achieving victory over the coronavirus itself. That, like any “battle” against any virus, is an impossibility. One need only look at rhinoviruses and orthomyxoviruses (cold and flu) to see that.
No, when I say victory in this context, I mean victory over the fear, uncertainty, and doubt surrounding the disease, its effects, and its spread. And, in the case of COVID-19, we have no plan or even consensus victory conditions in place. We’re just muddling along.
Frankly, the closest America has to a plan is the Dem politicians pushing the fantasy of achieving vaccination-based herd immunity. And that is much more about maintaining divisions between Americans and Democrats than about actually reaching the mythical highpoint of herd immunity through mass vaccinations. The rest is just placebo/palliative measures centered around social distancing, wearing a mask, and periodic lock-downs.
But, at least we men can continue to enjoy the alternative and far better uses for our old businesswear.
No; We’re Just Prolonging The Plague
And, unlike “victory,” I do mean that we’re literally prolonging and accelerating this disease, as well as prolonging and exacerbating the socio-economic-political damages that are the worst part of COVID-19.
Simply and sadly put, the vaccines the government has essentially forced us to take don’t work and never have, not from the standpoint of starving COVID-19 to death through preventing infection. They’ve, in fact, increased the speed of its mutation and set things up so that a larger percentage of those mutations will be resistant to- and unaffected by these subunit vaccines, which use or mimic specific protein chains from the coronavirus.
What Doesn’t Kill You Mutates And Tries Again
What You Don’t Kill Mutates And Tries Again
This is fairly normal with this sort of virus. A certain number of vaccinated people – an unknown number due to the unavoidable inability to accurately track minor infections – will contract COVID-19 and it will run out its truncated lifespan in their bodies, the whole time exposed to the antigens triggered by the vaccine. And, like all viruses, some of their numbers will mutate to be resistant. It’s just that the nature of coronaviruses and the apparent weakness of the vaccines make this much more likely. It’s also going to get even more likely as the efficacy of the vaccine degrades further.
So, there’s no end to- and no victory over COVID-19 that can be reasonably expected. Someday, perhaps, when societal fatigue reaches a tipping point and herd immunity against the panicdemic is achieved, this will end quietly. But that won’t be until the media and politicians both have nothing to gain from it.
