Consequently, they are also the ones who are able to easily avoid infection.
They don’t have to use overcrowded public transport, work in close proximity to others.
They can afford to order take-away deliveries most nights and work from home, if need be.
And if schools do re-open next month, they will be able to keep schooling their kids from home, if they don’t believe it is safe enough.
In other words, their chance of becoming infected is minimal, which also means they are unlikely to spread it to their families.
This may sound like a conspiracy theory, and if it is, then it’s one that was unplanned and is purely circumstantial: corporations taking advantage of the situation to stay alive, by convincing gullible people that it’s safe outside, when it’s not.
Again Donald Trump is the perfect example of this; supporting calls for re-opening the American economy and rubbishing concerns of being infected, while making sure he and his family are safe and constantly tested.
These are people who live inside a cocoon in which they are highly unlikely to be infected.
Their concern for the economy is merely an extension of their true concern, which is first and foremost for their investment portfolios and their companies.
These are people who encourage us to accept that some lives will be lost, but what they mean is that we must accept that we may lose our lives, while they continue to make profits.
There are a lot of us and we know the unemployment rate is growing as the world’s overpopulation peaks, so from an actuarial point of view, the corporate world can afford to lose a few million workers to the Coronavirus.
There are many more for them to choose from.
I am not stating this as fact, but I do want you to think about why only certain people are calling for the economy to be reopened.
Our president is surrounded by the best scientific minds in the country and yet these individuals insist that they know better.
They are almost unashamedly putting the economy above human life; asking us to risk our lives for the preservation of capitalism, while they are not prepared to do the same.
These are the same kinds of people who happily declare war and watch other people’s children go get massacred on the frontlines, while their offspring get to watch from a safe distance.
At a time when it is only logical for us all to stand united and trust in a single message from a sound leadership, we must ask why they are so determined to sow doubt with a contrary counterintuitive narrative.
