Those riots aren't COVID related
Yes and no. I don't think any of this would have been nearly as destructive if they hadn't kept people locked up for months. We shall also soon see if there is a spike in cases. Not glad about the rioting but it's a good test as to whether crowds matter.

With the assault of Covid, then looting, makes one wonder if this will push even more business to Ecom instead of retail.
With COVID 19, I would say yes, definitely, but with the riots (and I mean the looting and destruction not the protests) I'm not so sure. Post offices are closing their 24 hour lobbies and I am about to ship stuff into somewhere in the thick of protesting where streets are shut down. I'm insuring but I would bet they don't pay if civil unrest is the cause of it being lost or destroyed.

Yet another interesting aspect to think about: Last week COVID was the most deadly thing ever, and the death count was permanently affixed to the screen on CNN. If you even questioned the narrative you were evil and wanted grandma to die.

Just a week later: Go out and gather in massive groups, scream yell spit and bleed all over the place. COVID isn't a threat anymore, now the police are.

I took this post from Alex Becker's Facebook, Because I think it sums things up well:

33347

You know what C.oved, these riots, and all the people on social media going insane has reinforced to me.

That you either have power or you are just part of the game.

Let's get one thing straight. I believe the virus is real. I believe what happened to Floyd is terrible. But here is a undeniable/undebatable fact. The same tiny group of men, all white BTW, own all of the media. Last I checked 4-6 companies own ALL the media. 3 men own all social media. (Zuck, Google Boys,
Dorsey)

Here's another fact. If this small group of white men didn't want the virus to be a thing or the terrible thing that happened to Floyd to be a thing...it wouldn't be a thing. So the question is : What is their intent.

Seriously, as of a week ago we were being told Cvid would kill us all. AKA it was a thing. In the span of DAYS its no longer even relevant to the media. AKA they made it not a thing and made something else a thing.

Does this mean C-vid and the tragedy of Floyd arn't real? no.

What it does mean is that the things we are fighting over, afraid of and freaking out over are picked for us by this group of men and presented to us in a certain way to create a certain affect. AKA they can present the world in any way they choose.

Again if your on the fence about that Cvid literally just went from being a justification to ruin the entire economy, something you should be SHAMED for not fearing to something that is borderline irrelevant. In fact people are being actively told to ignore it and that protesting is more important.

AKA a issue picked for us and presented in a certain way to get a certain affect.

I think what happened to Floyd is horrible, I also know it will disappear completely as soon as the election is over..which is double horrible.

But why would they do this? I have no clue. I just know that they are doing it with intent and there are other big players trying to counter them.

We however, are caught right in the middle. It's like they are life guards at wet and wild fighting over the controls to a wave pool and WE are in the wave pool.

And simple fact is, you either have power or your part of the game. Fight, scream, protest, yell on FB, it's totally in vain.

What's the intent of the fighting and screaming though?

Well, at the core all of it is based around "how does this affect me, my values and people I care about".

The fighting, protesting, Twitter wars is an attempt to influence the world in a way that best suits you.

However its again in vain because the world we see is not the world that is. The world we see is what is presented to us by a tiny tiny tiny group of white men.

(FYI : I keep saying white men, not in the current political way, but because you need to realize all this crazy racial stuff going on...it's coming from a white guy. Why would a white guy stir up racial turmoil. Well...to hurt other hyper powerful white guys.

These guys aren't doing this for equality or because they "care". The fact that anyone thinks these WHITE guys pushing all this racial stuff are on THEIR races side is nuts.)

So what did this enforce to me. Simple.

There is only 1 way to make sure the world works in your favor, reflects your values and that the people you care about are taken care of.

Have power.

There zero point to pay attention to what's going on in the wave pool. There's zero point to fighting with the people in the wave pool. It's ALL an illusion with some intent.

You should just be silent, ignore the illusion and the people participating in it completely. Then focus all your energy on gaining enough power either to

A) Be immune to the illusion (aka so wealthy you can't be affected...aka all the people in beverly hills behind gates with security who can move anywhere in the world on a dime)

B) Affect the illusion (aka so wealthy and powerful and politically connected that you can start playing with the wave pool controls too)

That's it. Or you can just give zero F*cks and accept what the illusion gives you and roll with it.

But fighting the illusion, screaming at others about, getting upset...it's pointless. That's like Super Mario thinking if he beats King Koopa he will some how have control over the video game. No. That's just part of the game.

This is why I have muted all social media and don't watch any news. I don't want to be part of the game. I want to be immune to it.

I can't solve the problems being shown to us or influence them. I won't even try to because the guys in charge change the problem as soon as it doesn't suit them.

Instead I am going to simply build and build and build and build and build so that myself and the people I care about (my family and team at HYROS) are immune to the illusion.

That's it. Scream, claw, fight..You won't have any impact on the world you see because the world you see
isn't the world that is, it's the world chosen for you to see by 8 guys.

Be quiet and build.

JUST an FYI before anyone tries to make this political
-I believe coved is real
-What happened to Floyd and has happened to black Americans is TERRIBLE
-I support protest
-I think the looters and rioters are filth and should dealt with harshly
BUT what I think doesn't really matter and talking about it is pointless. There will be something else to be upset about or fear in 2 months.

Remember the careful 3 phase opening plan. instead we went from phase 0 to level 10 in an instance. Kinda find it funny that I haven’t heard the word Fauci in a whole 7 days.

On the flip side. This is a researchers dream. Gonna find out if the theories of social distancing and quarantine were bullsh$t or not.

What metric will we be looking at?

Speeding things up is expected. A higher than expected mortality rate in the age group 65+ is something that is somewhat likely and would make a small difference. But at what point would we be shocked?
Do you have metrics in mind? I think the relevant data is already in. 10% of 25 year olds won't suddenly die because of the more intense social interactions.

There will be yet another round of emotional mudslinging without much factual substance. Any increase in cases and deaths will be a catastrophe.

All of them will need to go into a mandatory 14-day quarantine in a governmental facility. The country has enough tests to test them but why bother, right? Better offer a traumatic experience.
Just to update on this: they brought 98 people. All were tested and all tested negative. Yet, they're still under a 14-day quarantine. At least they gave them an option to choose a government facility or a designated local hotel at their own expense (and a few were allowed to do home quarantine).

But what's the point of a test if you still force people to waste 2 weeks of their life? Wouldn't it be easier to place them under a 4-day quarantine, then do a test and then be pretty confident that they're all virus-free?

On the flip side. This is a researchers dream. Gonna find out if the theories of social distancing and quarantine were bullsh$t or not.
Haven't you learned already? Who cares at this point about research? Lol.

It's not just weird, it's disgusting. So much brainwashing all over the place. There should one more option: not into Karens.

Related to COVID19 but slightly off topic. Does anyone have any legitimate sources on the cost that businesses are spending to retrofit their operations to be COVID19 compliant? I'm specifically referring to those plastic shields in between employees and customers, 6 foot stickers on the ground in stores and bank lobbies, signage, etc? I'm looking for just a rough dollar figure.

Interesting take here from James Corbett over in Japan:

View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJNXlbSpOy0


Essentially: no lockdowns....and no armageddon...just business as usual.
Hmmm makes you wonder.

Apparently their government said that they couldn't enforce a lockdown anyways because it would go against people's civil liberties and their constitution.....looks like you might have to put Japan on your list of freedom-loving countries to possibly move to @Kak :smile:

Literally in jail for 14 days. 14 days of zero freedom and they have done nothing wrong.

This was an interesting article that touches on a little of that.

This new plexiglass world, and being told which direction and what isle in a store I can walk down drives me freaking insane.

I was at a Canadian Tire yesterday and their self serve checkouts had that yellow "murder tape" strung all over the place, and it was all over the place where you normally exit. So instead of being able to just leave after I pay, I had to backtrack and go through their designated route and exit where everyone else has to go. Would that not increase chances of infection? Who thinks of this crap????

Also WHO CARES IF I GET SICK!!!! Big F*cking deal. I don't have some underlying health concern, and I am not 85, so why does the government even need to protect me?? If I get sick I can stay home, just like I would if I had any other sickness. So I have been living my life forever where I stay home when I am sick, but suddenly I can't do that and I need government tracking and the police to enforce it? WTF happened and why does everyone agree with this??

Seems like the virus leaves you alone if you stop being such a racist (?)
Virtue signaling and violent rioting are both a vaccine.

Remember citizens, keep your protests to less than 100 people or you will be instantly infected and die from Corona Virus!!!

Canada has erupted in protests as well, thank goodness we got the cure to Corona as well! Our mighty king Sir Justin T. Esquire has even joined in. My hero!!!!

Oh, and I hope hope hope hope so hard that this whole "defund the police" movement actually works!! It is spreading big time in Canada. A native woman had a "wellness check" called on her by her boyfriend. How did the police respond? By showing up and shooting her to death. Yup, they fixed her real good, no more wellness issues anymore. It is insane that the militarization of the police, and the growth of their "us vs them" attitude has been allowed to go on for so long. Maybe the cure for Covid19 will actually be worth the disease we had before. Could this put us on a better path than we were on before? Are people finally going to be sick of politicians running the lives of those they have no actual interest or ties to?
