It's like I'm living in this dystopian anti-reality, like a black hole of nothing but lies and the closer you get, the more difficult becomes any possibility of escape.
And it's almost everywhere, globally. The only thing that gives me hope and pause is Texas, Florida, and a few other shimmering lights on the planet. I'm seriously considering packing it in here in Paradise—Rawai Beach, Phuket, Thailand—and heading back to the USA, destination Florida. And take my Thai family along for the ride.
I mean, this world is just fucked. Completely obsessed with this this Covid thing and while I just mostly bit my tongue over the last year, expecting it to gravitate back to some semblance of normal, it just gets worse. Thailand has 318 deaths amongst a population of 70 million (about the population of the UK). That's in the 14-15 months since death number one. About 250 die on the roadways each week, and over 10,000 are injured. Each week. Yet they treat this like it's the Black Plague.
How long to take it before you just give up and go elsewhere?
Just saw this, this morning. Someone screen clipped the WHO bits on herd immunity between June and November, 2020.
