I ought not have this silly sense that interest in the whole 2-year disaster is waning all the while public protestations and demonstrations are intensifying.
Yet that's the reality.
For two years I've written about the whole dumbness, and with plenty of science references and even my own data crunching. The public is disinterested in that generally. So, I write for a few thousand global niche geeks who endeavor to understand what makes people so dumb and compliant. ...Incurious, really—my sense of Original Sin.
So, one could jeer that I TOLD YOU THIS TWO FUCKING YEARS AGO!!!
But I chalk it up to a gift horse and watch as there's too much action on the ground to account for—as some double down, and where more astute countries are racing to extricate themselves from the mess they created for political gain.
Only the truly foolish don't understand that the gig is up. They way overplayed their hand—visions of sugar-plum great resets dancing in their heads—and the few holdouts may go down with the ship if they don't back off pretty quick. There're some who know very well that their political careers are done for. They're watching, waiting, and looking for hail marry's to snag from thin air.
There will be none.
Covid infections are at their highest ever globally.
