Today’s old fart top news story is about the mass hysteria being generated about the Coronavirus, a particularly nasty form of flu, and the resulting worldwide shortages of protective measures. According to a CBC article about shortages, it’s leaving healthcare workers dangerously unprotected and vulnerable to infection. Now this old fart has lived long enough to have seen a few such social phenomenon through the decades, and usually it turns out okay, but things are different today.
There’s A Critical Shortage Of Doctors, Nurses And Caregivers
Hospitals no longer have hoards of pink cheeked volunteers assisting nurses and caregivers. Quite the opposite is now the reality. Today there are more people involved in billing us than in treating us. There aren’t enough hospitals, and exiting ones all need updates. And no one without a specific piece of paper is allowed to help anymore. To make matters worse, there’s a critical shortage of doctors, nurses, caregivers, medicines and supplies because billions and billions of taxpayer dollars have been insanely diverted away from essential services to finance an extremely wealthy private foreign industrial development.
Shortages Always Lead To Increased Crime
But it isn’t just healthcare people who we need to worry about. Air traffic control, urban transportation operation, and food processing are all potential sources of disaster. And we can’t forget those on social assistance who can only shop once a month that find empty shelves by the time they get there. It isn’t their fault people that are hoarding food, water and medical supplies as if in preparation for the end of the world as we know it, but they feel the brunt of it. And, in every such ‘run’ on retail I’ve ever seen, food shortages ALWAYS lead to increased crime.
Coronavirus’s Global Disruption Is Very Real
The sudden emergence of the Coronavirus has to have the fans of the FEMA conspiracy sitting right on the edge of their chairs screaming, “See! Here come the medical quarantine camps you damn fools!” However, regardless of whether the virus was man made or not, or if it lives up to it’s worst expectations or not, the Coronavirus’s global disruption is very real, and it’s putting a lot of very pivotal people at risk. And in the process, it’s illuminating some horrendous flaws in the social systems governing our world. So this old fart hopes it serves as a wake call for us to get our priorities back in line, and to realize that what the old timers told me is still true, “An ounce of prevention is worth a whole pound of cure”.
