    Covid-19: 69 Mil 

    Hello!

    It’s been a while.
    It feels like it’s been a while.
    I haven’t disappeared. I’ve just expanded the number of projects I’m working on. That means less nonsense, more creativity and more productivity.

    The world crossed 69M cases yesterday.
    And that’s reason enough to write an article.

    For the past 2-3 weeks, the US has been hitting 200K+ cases everyday. And that’s a major accomplishment.
    It is in sharp contrast to India, which has been hitting an average of 20-30K everyday.

    I think these statistics are very useful in acknowledging liars and honest people.

    Even at this rate, it would take the US at least 4 years before everyone is infected with Covid-19.
    So the daily cases are still relatively small, but not a nonissue.

    I remember seeing articles of 21M cell phones dropping off the grid in China. Analysts said it could be the number of people who died in China due to Covid-19.
    Of course the CCP and Xi Jinpeeing would never confirm that.
    So if you compare those numbers to the 296K deaths in the US, 179K deaths in Brazil and 141K deaths in India, it looks like the rest of the world still doesn’t have it that bad.

    Okay!
    Predictions for the pandemic at the present moment – It’s 10th December 2020. Most of the people have resumed life as normal. Many do not even bother wearing masks or sanitizing their hands.
    Are people taking the pandemic seriously? Nope!
    It’s a money-making capitalistic world as usual. I think the only ones standing to lose are those who get infected. Companies will continue to run as usual. The governments will continue to function as usual.
    There’s just too many people on the planet for them to notice anything significant at the moment.
    Now if a million folks were dropping dead in a single day, everyone would scramble to take action.
    But at the current death rate of 12K daily, it’s hard to notice anything.
    According to the internet, around 385K babies are born everyday. Meanwhile 150K people die everyday.
    So, unless the Covid-19 deaths climb to 100K+ daily, nothing will change. People are just not going to take the pandemic seriously enough to make any sacrifices in their normal lives. Weddings will go on, protests will go on, sports will go on, everything will go on as usual. Except education! Do you know why the academic system has opted for long distance online education instead of regular classroom attendance? It’s easier for them! It makes life a lot easier for the teachers, deans, principals, staff workers and so on. Matter of fact, janitors aren’t even needed any more so some may even be fired. Teachers can stay at home and spend more time in their chores and only show up for their respective class slots.
    Who cares about the students? Who cares if kids are paying attention in class or playing games and chatting on Facebook?
    Do you think the modern education system cares if your kid fails in school? Hell no!
    The modern education system is a money-making machine. It’s like a casino.
    You might think you’re getting something in return but you’re not! There are no jobs out there for undergrads. All the careers you can dream of require experience of 5-10 years on average.
    The entire system is a mess.
    The academic system makes people go broke, and the capitalist corporate system ensures they stay broke.
    The governments are there to ensure that broke people accept their fate submissively and the entire system runs smoothly. i.e. the rich keep getting richer, and the poor stay poor.

    Anyway, 69 Mil! For those who were expecting the pandemic to be over by December, the global stats have something to say…

    Covid-19: India’s Fourth Milestone 

    On Saturday, 5th September 2020, India crossed 4 Million cases of Covid-19.
    That’s 2 weeks from the last milestone.

    I’ve got nothing to say about this milestone.
    Congratulations India.
    I hope this was an achievement worth bragging about.

    Moving on to the next one.

    Covid-19: India’s Third Milestone 

    I’m lagging behind on my posting schedule.
    Will fix this ASAP.

    India crossed 3M on Saturday, 22nd August 2020.
    According to my stats, that’s roughly 2 weeks and 3 days from the 2nd milestone.

    Some people may be wondering why I’m only focusing on India’s Covid-19 numbers when the US has 5.8M cases at the time of this writing.
    Well, the entire US would only make up a quarter of India’s population.
    When it comes to population density. poor hygiene, terrible healthcare and a broken system, the US is no match for India.

    India has been leading with the daily Covid-19 cases for over a week now. And that’s just the beginning.

    Life is really just going on everywhere in the world. The Covid fear has faded; a lot of bold people walk in the streets without masks.

    What’s really surprising me is how many people are NOT infected with the Covid-19.
    You’d think that with all these morons walking around with exposed nostrils, the streets would be lined with dead bodies like in Ecuador.
    But that’s not the case here.
    So what’s going on with the Coronavirus? Is it selectively killing off only the weak people? Because I see a lot of sinful wicked people everywhere and none of them seem to be having any health problems.

    After all these lockdowns, restrictions, lifestyle changes and inconveniences, how would the world react if people discovered that the threat of Covid-19 wasn’t as alarming as the governments made it out to be?
    If there’s a pandemic, let’s see some situations that reflect the presence and gravity of said pandemic, shall we?

    There have been rumors of doctors stealing organs from patients who were falsely diagnosed with Covid-19.
    In a country like India, that is quite likely to happen.
    Imagine having seasonal flu and being thrown into quarantine by a bunch of corrupt government officials and doctors so they could harvest your organs and sell them off.

    Anyway, I don’t want to ponder on hearsay.

    There’s been a lot of stuff going on around the world. I haven’t really been in the mood to post articles and give my comments on these events lately.

    What happened to Bolsonaro? Did he recover yet?
    Kim Jong Un is reported to be in a coma.
    Lukashenko’s trotting around with a gun.
    Xi Jinping still doesn’t have Covid.
    Well, it’s time for mother nature to follow up on these scumbags and cleanse the earth.

    Covid-19: India’s First Milestone 

    I didn’t really want to type another Covid-19 post. But one of the world’s alleged superpowers just crossed 1 Million cases of Covid-19. I think that deserves a post on it’s own merit.
    Congratulations to the most densely populated country on the planet.
    A few months ago, I’d predicted at least 300M cases in India. Now, I’m no astrologer, but for every Millionth milestone that India, and any other country reaches, I will push out, at the bare minimum, a post acknowledging the numbers.

    And before anyone calls me a hater, perhaps they should focus on the people who are actually to blame – the governments and the people spreading the virus.

    How do you achieve the feat of hitting 1M in mid-July from a few hundred cases in mid-March?
    It’s pretty simple actually. You take a nation full of self-absorbed morons who only care about their status and looking good in front of others, and you combine that with the ultimate ignorance and arrogance that can only be surpassed by a Brazilian or an American. And of course, the Chinese, except that the Chinese have mastered the art of lies, deception, murder and betrayal as well.
    The Chinese government led by Xi Jinping, is actually so dangerous, that they killed all the doctors, nurses, journalists and activists who leaked evidence regarding the Coronavirus when the Wuhan epidemic was initially discovered.

    If a pandemic consumes a nation, who is to blame?

    I believe the people are to blame. It’s the citizens who are to blame. Not all citizens, but the majority of them will directly, or indirectly, have contributed in some way or form to the spread of the pandemic.
    So the majority of people have nobody to blame but themselves.

    India is a third world country. And it doesn’t look like that’s going to change any time soon.
    Of the 1.3 Billion people, how many of them are wearing masks, isolating themselves and socially distancing themselves at home, on the streets, and at work?

    There are a lot of Indians walking on the streets without a mask on because they think they’re invincible to the Covid-19. These people think they’ve got some kind of superpowers or something.
    Reminds me of one recently deceased ISKCON sannyasi from Mayapur, India, who went to Florida during the pandemic on June 3rd, where he of course, contracted the Covid-19 and later died from it.
    Then there’s another Sannyasi in Europe who inspired devotees to gather in the temple and chant the Hare Krsna maha mantra during the pandemic.

    I think both the Indians and Brazilians have a lot in common when it comes to ignorance and arrogance.
    Perhaps the Americans aren’t too smart either since they thought it was okay to protest in large crowds but totally not okay to go to the gym during a pandemic.

    Does anyone still remember the leaked CCTV clips of various Chinese people spitting on elevators and spitting on their hands and rubbing them on door handles and so on?
    I’ve got a bunch of those videos stored somewhere so when the next ignorant moron comes and calls me racist or a hater, I can slam the evidence on them.

    The citizens elect the politicians. The politicians make policies that affect the nation.
    And if we have a look at the leaders of these nations, it is a sorry sight indeed.

    The best that Brazil could come up with is Jair Bolsonaro. That is the cream of Brazil. Jair Bolsonaro is the best Brazilian of all the Brazilians.
    This is what the entire nation of Brazil could come up with during their elections. They elected this fool. They voted him in. And look what’s happened to Brazil now. They’re close to 2M cases now. While the Indians celebrate their first M, Brazil is about to grab it’s second.
    And how did that happen? An absolute fool was the chosen leader of a great nation, he completely disregarded health experts, and now he’s down with the Chinese flu.
    Does anyone feel sorry for Jair Bolsonaro? Anyone?
    Someone send him a “Get well soon” card maybe?

    Then you have Trump, the greatest American of all Americans. Donald Trump defines the new generation of Americans. Long gone are the well-spoken, thoughtful, insightful, wise, respected leaders of the world’s greatest nation. Now you have a fool who gets mocked by every other American citizen on social media.
    And who elected this guy? Jehovah? Jesus Christ?
    Oh no! It was the people, the great American citizens who somehow wanted to make an already great nation great. How do they do that? How do you make a great thing great?

    The media doesn’t respect Trump. The politicians don’t respect Trump. Even the little kids don’t respect Trump.

    What good is a leader who isn’t respected by anybody?
    And I think leadership is about respect. One quality of a great leader is that everyone respect him. Not fear, but respect.

    Xi Jinping is not a respected leader. Xi is a feared leader. If you call him a fat ugly bear, he’ll get you killed. If you call him an incompetent moron who betrays his own nation, you might have to remain in hiding your entire life.
    That’s not respect. That’s fear, driven by cruelty. And it only lasts long enough to build indignition and rebellion that results in a bloody coup.

    If you wait for a dictator to grow invincible, you’ll never be able to get rid of him.
    The Chinese waited for too long, and now they’re paying the price of their laziness by kissing Jinping’s hairy butt on Wechat and watching the Chinese government’s propaganda on TV all day.
    Perhaps the Chinese could import a few dozen balls from the HongKong protestors before those become extinct too.

    Narendra Modi is on the way to culling India as well. And if the Indians don’t wake up now, they might end up losing their balls just like the Chinese did.
    There’s enough censorship on the Indian internet. I don’t know if Modi picked up a few tips from his Chinese neighbor’s walled garden, but it looks like the Indians don’t care about freedom anyway.

    And now that I’m discussing Modi, this is the guy who locked down the nation when there were a few hundred cases, and then reopened the nation when there were several thousand new cases daily.
    This man had no strategy going in. And he had no strategy coming out of the lockdown.
    And all these guidelines issued by the health ministry held as much value as a donkey’s balls does to a squirrel.

    However, Modi isn’t as dumb as Bolsonaro. Neither is he going senile like the silver-spooned Trump.
    In terms of intelligence, Modi is comparable to Vladimir Putin. The man knows how to survive and stay in power.
    But he knows that a third world country could never survive a long period of lockdown. So he pulled a genius move and let the country open up, leaving the people to fend for themselves. In this way, people can neither blame Modi if they caught the Coronavirus, nor could they blame him if they stayed home and became broke.

    Since the Covid-19 has been on the news since January, I’m beginning to think that it’s serving a purpose here. Quite clearly everybody is aware of the virus at this point. People are aware of how the virus spreads, and they are aware of how they can protect themselves.
    So, if somebody gets infected by the Covid-19, it raises the question – How?
    How did someone get infected by the Covid-19 if they had been taking all precautions?
    And if somebody is found infected due to negligence of the safety measures, then perhaps it’s time to rename to Covid-19 to the Stupid virus; if you catch it, you must have done something stupid.

    Does anyone remember back in March, when all the governments and various health organizations were insisting that masks don’t work? Does anyone remember health experts recommending healthy people NOT to wear masks unless they were tending to an infected patient?
    The official narrative keeps changing.
    Every day, doctors, researchers and scientists are discovering something new about the Covid-19. So officially, there is no concrete information available on how dangerous the virus is.

    Covid-19: 3 Months In Isolation 

    I think I just completed 3 months of self-isolation.

    The world just crossed 8M infected cases. India is now leading the world in the daily number of new cases.

    There was a strange feeling when the government initially announced the lockdown. The entire world was uncertain of the future. I’d been binge-watching clips of the Covid-19 crisis in Wuhan right from the citizens’ perspectives. It was crazy. Everyone’s eyes were on China.

    And then the Covid-19 virus spread to Italy and Iran, South Korea and Spain. The entire world’s focus shifted from China to Europe. A few days later, New York city became the new epicenter of the Covid-19 crisis. Then the pandemic spread to various countries. Various countries got their share of the media’s spotlight: Ecuador, Brazil, France, Germany, UK, Russia, and finally, India.

    By the time the pandemic began to consume India, everyone had gotten tired of the Covid-19 situation. People chose to focus on their own countries. The pandemic was no longer a global crisis. It was a national crisis handled in different ways by each government.

    There have been protests – first against the lockdown, then against the police brutality against the African Americans. The protests spread from the United States over to the UK, then France, Germany and even Japan.

    More African Americans have been killed during these protests by fellow protestors, to avenge the death of one guy killed during his arrest. The official George Floyd gofundme has received over $14M in donations as of 15th June 2020.

    But what about the gofundme of the other people who were killed during the protests? Do they not matter? Don’t they deserve any donations through fundraisers? I don’t think anyone even knows the names of the people who have died in these protests so far. I don’t. Beause the media hasn’t discussed the lives of these other people. The protestors don’t give a crap about these other people. Nobody’s walking around with signs with the names of these people. There is no graffiti on the walls with the names and faces of these people.

    Here’s my summary of the George Floyd protests: One black guy died during his arrest by police officers. The entire nation erupted into chaos to protest police brutality. “Black lives matter! I can’t breathe!” And then they burned down a few cop cars, and a few buildings, they robbed a few malls and small businesses, they broke windows and caused damage to private property, they spray painted ugly graffiti and slogans all over the cities, they started taking down historical statues, and then took over a few blocks in Seattle, calling it the Capital Hill Autonomous Zone or CHAZ. Apparently that’s been changed to CHOP, whatever that’s supposed to mean. The antifas are walking around with guns, patrolling the streets in Seattle, and this is the best way America could handle the death of one man during his arrest.

    What happened to the gun laws and banning of guns and outlawing guns and so on? Do the Antifa not advocate for banning guns? Or do they support the NRA? Isn’t the NRA a right wing association?

    Black lives matter. Really? Is anyone mourning the death of the black people killed during the George Floyd protests/riots? Whose life really matters? Does one man’s life matter, but another’s not? I saw a video of a black woman, who spent the night cleaning her store, asking the protestors to choke her out instead. “Look what you did to my store!”, I remember her saying, “Black lives matter! Why don’t you choke me out instead?” Where’s the gofundme for this poor woman? Where’s the gofundme for the hundreds of other small business owners who’s stores were damaged and destroyed by the Black Lives Matter and Antifa protestors?

    I saw this video of a bunch of protestors playing crappy music and breaking down statues. There was some black guy in a green tshirt who went to work on one statue, then was found standing beneath another statue, which two women toppled, on top of his head. It wasn’t intentional. But it happened all the same. Will these women go to jail? What about the hundreds of other crimes that were committed across the country? Will each of the protestors be tracked down, arrested, and charged for their crimimal activities?

    America is talking about justice. People are crying for justice, while commiting a bunch of crimes. There seems to be a tower of irony here. I don’t like playing favorites. As a third party, neutral observer, I can’t help but notice just how comical the entire situation has become.

    At the end of the day though, I’m not involved in these situations. They don’t concern me. I’ve stopped watching the news. I just scroll through the headlines and images to see what’s going on. As much as isolation sucks, I sure as hell wouldn’t want to be out there with a bunch of idiots causing more problems.

    Yesterday’s journal post described my feelings about family and relatives in general. Looking at the bigger picture though, I can say that I really don’t like most of the people across the world. I’m just too straightforward and logical to be dealing with stupid problems created by stupid people.
