Four Epidemics That Didn't Happen

You remember the terrifying outbreak of Ebola virus in 2013, but do you recall the Ebola outbreak of 2021? That's probably because you were more concerned with COVID-19 by then, but it was also because health care professionals had a plan in place to stop Ebola in its tracks by 2021. While the world was dealing with the massive COVID-19 pandemic, several other epidemics were averted by public health systems and rapid response, and that's worth celebrating. The world has learned a lot about fighting diseases in a population, but it takes political will and government funds to keep those systems in place and ready to go to work when needed.

But we don't need all that government organizing, some guy on the internet will tell us what we need to know. In a couple more years we won't even need doctors, just farcebook or twiller... Oh, and chicken soup.

When we have given the W.H.O. power over our actions, that unelected and anonymous agency will tell us all what to do, and they will make sure we all get our due vaccinations.

We will have nothing to decide and we will be happy.


You must see the new horror movie that's coming soon, its called Twenty Thirty ... I've seen previews - it's terrifying.
