I bet if we pandemic a little harder, we’ll get those numbers right down.
That’s something that gives me pause in all this. There has long been a deep current of anti-human in the environmental movement. Goes back at least to Malthus.
The zeal with which lockdowns, etc have been embraced fits in there somewhere. And I don’t mean by “the elites”. I mean by the public. Some people are positively begging for more restrictions.
“If we can’t get rid of you people, we can at least lock you in your homes”.
The fact that such thinking was reflexively embraced by so many is chilling.
I’m getting ready to head out. The brother of one of my daughter’s friend’s ended his personal pandemic last night. In his bathroom. Ugly. Blood everywhere. Someone has to clean it up.
The professionals want thousands for a cleanup job like that. I’m doing it for nothing to help out the family in their time of trouble.
This is all so messed up. Our collective enthusiasm for treating people in the most inhumane way possible is horrible. We need some Jesus up in here.
God bless you my friend.
This is why I’ve come to believe that courage is the highest of human ideals. Once people submit to cowardice, there’s often no road back.
And it’s one of the things I appreciate about the folks here. Balls the size of bowling balls in the face of horrible circumstances.
Courage is the only alternative. And it enables everything else.
And I’ve come to believe it is the Gospel distilled.
Damn, Jeff. Be sure you do something life-affirming after a job like that.
Wishing you the best.
In other news, Idaho has evidently moved to some sort of new phase of reopening, while WA state remains tight as a drum. N Idaho dining yesterday looked like it was 2012 or something, while people in WA still drive with masks on in their own cars, by themselves. So strange, the juxtaposition.
