    Default Wars have killed millions yet.....

    ... something that is beyond control of governments and the human species is considered more of a threat since we do no control it. Wars which over the course of our history has killed hundreds of millions and perhaps even more lives who have died in horrible, horrific , disgusting and appalling conditions, yet we continued that cycle.

    When coronavirus outbreak occurred, many behaved in a frenzy type fashion, yet as we have seen in the coming months we have come together to some degree to fight the virus proving that the will was there. The human species could solve a great deal of our own problems most of which is social bickering and arguing over resources, ideologies and beliefs, power, arrogance, pride and sometimes and often many times lies.

    I believe you're right bogeyman, we could come together and cooperate far more. IF decisions weren't made FOR us by the non-human-like entities with no empathy. We need to remove them or transcend beyond them somehow. I think we can do it.

    I think that everyone reading this would agree.

    I also believe that we all (as the entire world) could have done much better from the start of the virus situation.

    Going forward, if we could undeniably identify the top villain - be they/it are human or otherwise (or even a group consisting of both), I beleive that we could get everyone together on the same page.

    We better, or there is a very real chance the "Powers that be".. Decide our fate for us. First it was an enemy with a name, then terrorism, and now an invisible enemy....

    This video reminds me of Mike's new joker image... The math doesn't add up... So what is going on?

    Werner von Braun said the next enemy after Terrorism would come from Space.

    Does a man-made virus count as Terrorism?

    How about one that really is natural, rather than human-designed, and comes from the "natural world" itself?

    Can and does the earth terrorize humanity, who has done an excellent job of terrorizing her first?

    There is a "frenzy" happening over potentialities that have already occurred in China. The emotional reaction and action isn't about current numbers so much as future numbers.

    Epidemics have taken out more people than war. Bubonic plague killed one third of the population of Europe. No war has done that...ever.

    There is a good chance the Plague was a weapon, like disease blankets to the Native Americans. Plague comes back every year, but, on its own, it doesn't spread much.

    The only way I can fight a virus is by catching it to produce antibodies. If it might hospitalize me, then, perhaps, we should wait in line for our turn, and it looks like being unemployed for another month is going to be the way to wait. So what I can actually personally do is next to nothing. Sit here and look at how far behind the country is in terms of anything like screening.

    I think that it is possible that this particular corona virus is tailored and spread to enter us in the new age. Is it utopia or dystopia remains to be seen. Is it spread by TPTB, Illuminati, evil ET's or what not it not clear to me.

    Or thn it could be just bad luck. Anyway, the timing seems a bit weird... I smell something fishy in this, just dunno what it is.

    a bit generalistic but.....

    90% of the strategies and technologies needed to fix the planet and our societies are known, proposed, and debated

    90% of the suggestions made by politicians, scientists and academics are shut down and suppressed because they threaten profits for the oligarch groups

    90% of the time that a beneficial action is undertaken, it is driven by extreme circumstances or crisis.

    Right now the UK government has offered a credit line of £330 Billion to the banks.

    Cost to decarbonise the uk: £330 billion(approximately)
    we have subcontracted the business of healing people to Companies who profit from sickness.

    What is with this obsession in the sick/ dead body count, media oligopoly?

    In my minds eye there is no way this thing is ALL about defeating A virus. There is clearly a force that is taking advantage of the 'opportunity' and it is not in favor of the common good of citizen earth.

    I think around 85 pct of people worldwide earn less than US$10 a day. In some countries, up to 75 pct work in the informal sector, which means they receive little or no benefits, and no steady income. Similar figures appear for those who have no bank accounts, and mainly because they have little or nothing to save.

    That means what they have to work daily in order to pay for their basic needs.
