Although I believe there is a virus and people are sick with it, I don't believe in the need for lockdowns, shut ins and etc.
Most people who have had the virus recovered from it, just like many other flu viruses. You don't hear about them. We don't hear about domestic violence caused by people still having access to abused substances while in close confines with the people they abuse. How many people are living a nightmare and would rather take their chances with a virus? We don't hear about people committing suicide. Virus talleys include people who had the virus but died from other causes, not always related at all.
We are given endless propaganda about staying home for the good of others/ everyone. So we are guilted into obeying. Meanwhile businesses are closed, many will not reopen, jobs are gone. There is talk of roads being closed - for a virus, really? What are we not supposed to see while living under the roof over our heads?
People are trapped at home, dependent on the Internet with all the various spyware from marketers. I'm sure this is a great time for gathering information. What happens when they start using it? Here we are, herded into our cages, waiting and ready for whatever messages they want to imprint in our brains. Marketing has been preying on people for generations, now it's just gotten so much easier. Being pushed into the lemming mentality makes us all fish in buckets for them.
This extreme panic is for some other reason. This is not the first virus to make its way around the world. Does that qualify it as a pandemic? I wonder if some people just wanted to live in a zombie/ apocalypse movie. Others are making money from it and other still are using it for their own ends. These are the people that worry me. What is all the hysteria hiding? Why are businesses shut down and people trapped in their homes (hoping or assuming everyone has a home) for an endless time but the quarantine is just 2 weeks. Why are schools shut down but children from split homes are still shuttled back and forth several times a week from family to family. There are many things which don't make sense.
This is why I created the coronavirus ASCII art. It's a protest. I hope it gets people thinking, for themselves, rather than listening to the bottomless propaganda flooding the media. I think Con19 is the right terminology.
