How To Make A Culture Sick In Three Months
Create a toilet paper shortage, pin it on the Chinese and induce mass psychosis by making every news source in the world say exactly the same thing for weeks on end.
We’re doomed because the flu is vaguely predicted to sicken one hundred thousandth of the world’s population and kill roughly the number of people dying of drug overdoses in a year. Can you even remember the last time some politician actually mentioned drug overdoses–unless he actually experienced one?
Somehow the flu comes every year, infects maybe 50 to 70 percent of the population, kills a small city and then leaves till next flu season. For some reason, this year is different. But nobody can tell me why.
