There is no doubt that despite government and corporate outcries of being unable to halt business and stop their greed and destruction of the Earth, when it came down to the CCP virus spreading into their homes to possibly kill our leaders and their family members, they called for everyone to stay home and shut nearly everything down, save for “essential business”. The effects of the COVID-19 virus show that when we really need to do something, like change the human attitude towards Earth and our bahavior towards animals and all of nature, we can change. We willingly choose not to until it is almost too late.
This virus has been traumatizing for everyone who has and will live through it. According to the recovery rate, it will kill many people, but it will not kill everyone. By the time the virus has spread and gone through its course, we can probably estimate that at least a half a million to a million people will no longer be alive on this planet. It is very unfortunate and I really hope that none of you have to experience it. However, in a way, it may have had to happen in order to save our planet. While we, as a human race, do not advocate ever for culling, euthanizing, or putting down, unless terminally ill, any human being, the only way for this to humanely happen is through a natural virus caused by conditions in nature.
As you read that message above, you can clearly see how much your life has been effected, and there is no one and nothing you can do to complain to anyone. No one can do anything about it and nothing can change currently until it has “run its course.” Unfortunately, it may take longer than expected as many people all over the world still struggle to believe that this is really happening, and they are stuck inside, self-quaratined, and isolated. This is not happening. It could never happen. Yes, we do keep saying that, don’t we? Yet we don’t mind watching vampire movies, werewolf movies, zombie movies, alien movies, pandemic virus movies, etc. Of course, none of that stuff could really ever happen in real life, could it?
Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, X-Files, Fringe, Black Mirror, and so on and so forth: none of it could ever happen. Strictly human imagination. Isn’t it? Or could it really happen? Could this hidden world really be real? Of course, pandemics are a natural part of human life and have been since our history. Vampires. Werewolves. Aliens. Embedded into culture, but never proven real. Who knows? In a universe where anything is possible, including the extinction of the human race and everything on this planet, we must take more seriously that despite the fact that it seems like 7.5 billion is a lot of us, once we make that leap into space travel: it is actually quite a small number.
As you can see, there are things beyond what any human, government, or money can control. In more desperate times, it will not be whether we have money or our jobs, but whether we have food and our families with us that matter most. However, you and your families should start treating the Earth better than you did your home during your entire quarantine. Give the Earth a chance to rest and heal itself. If you don’t have to drive, drive less. If you don’t really need it, don’t really get it. You don’t need everything. Live simply so that others may simply live.
