    I am personally taking notes among acquaintances, friends, etc because this is a good watershed: people who blame the virus rather than the media are probably morons and I don't want anything to do with them in my personal life.

    If people were smart, there would be journalist heads rolling for this "pandemic".
    Sums it about up.

    For most Corona will be kind of like the flu. Some may get complications and its more serious. In the overall damage that disease do this still will be a drop in the bucket.

    Not able to earn an income will be far more devastating to those affected.

    My company has been virtue signalling "our" response to it like all the others out there and incrementally restricting access to my workplace. A few weeks ago, I lost my guaranteed overtime due to lack of account investments, while we have made more money in peripherals than our main specialty. Only this week, we've been expected to see our supervisors before proceeding onto the work floor and this morning, I was asked if I wanted a mask for the first time.

    Of course, I laughed and said no, but the economy is supposed to be getting better and it's confusing to see this doubling down. My only concern, aside from shrunken income, is any possibility of it becoming policy to subject employees to a test of convictions regarding the "new normal" and maybe sending non-compliant workers home for not recanting the heresy of coronavirus denial. That's only speculation, but I wouldn't be surprised if people at other businesses are penalized for "trivializing a tragedy" or "not taking proper precautions". WTF ever!

    Yep, many folks speculate that "corona denial" is gonna become the "new racism" or smth. It's already being censored on social media, folks have had their videos & accounts deleted or shadowbanned cause of it. Anti-vaxers and alternative med/natural healers were already banned on sites like Twitter & Pinterest before the corona craze. Plus there's folks who want to install thermal monitors & measure the temperature of folks going inside any facility. Don't even wanna think about Bill Gates's plans to vax & microchip everyone like cattle. That's one of the reasons hubby & I start investing more in gold & such & stashing away long-lasting foods in our pantries. If the shit hits the fan & they get rid of cash & switch from credit cards to chips, folks who decline to comply might be left with no option to enter supermarkets or buy stuff. Then folks who wanna live outside the system will have to turn to survivalist, off-grid mode & learn to trade between themselves, essentially back to the basics of capitalism where there was no money or when folks had different types of currencies.

    This is exactly why I don't believe in Bitcoin and invisible money. Kids need to be taught reading and writing by hand. If there is to be an uprising against a technocracy in which Silicon Valley rules the world, tactics such as in Live Free Or Die Hard will invariably include EMP blasts and basic skills must be had, along with money that has actual value, or just returning to the barter system. An entire digitalization of existence is just begging the rock bottom alternative in absence of all functional life as our families knew it before electromotive technologies.

    One, cause it's more convenient. This is how they market it. Some folks forget their phones & credit cards at home, they could get lost or stolen while the microchip is always gonna be there. They've already done some trials with some companies where employees were microchipped instead of receiving those access cards. The real reason I suspect is cause folks won't be able to disable tracking like they can with their devices, where they could disable GPS & location services or simply turn off their phones or leave them at home if they don't wanna be snooped on.

    Children are already being microchipped like pets. Otherwise I've seen kids with leashes in supermarkets. Of course, none of those parents would have taken kindly to those infringements to their dignities when they themselves were kids. Who can forget what is and isn't humane? If they bring back traveling human zoos with Third Worlders from international exhibitions in the late 19th century, maybe I would tone down the rhetoric or just direct it poignantly. Same thing with non-White abortion sprees.
