All this shit is why I will never move back to the states.
'Religion' is about belief. Communism and fascism are also religions, and have a common source - the philosophies of Hegel and Kant. - 'The individual is subject to the state'. - In a democracy, the individual IS the state. Hegel and Kant were Prussians and probably militarist authoritarians. When you use fascism to oppose communism and vice-versa, you simply replace one form of authoritarianism with another. Democracy is a sideways shift. It is not the midpoint of an authoritarian paradigm.Alex Jones types. They are probably a lot of goldbugs too and they buy all those great supplements from Jones. All it takes is a con man and some snake oil. I've got relatives that feed into this crap, and they're fairly educated too. My wife has a cousin in MI that has a PHD in Psychiatry and he now believes the earth is the center of the universe. Actually, I really thing he's just trying to con people into paying and listening to his bunk, I can't believe he really believes it, but then some types of 'religion' will do that to people. It's called 'marketing'. He's one of those very conservative 'Catholics', like our illustrious 'attorney general', Barr. But this 'us' and 'them' crap has got to end, that started with Regan, right after Nixon's southern strategy.
If I'd known it was going to turn out like this, I'd have left long ago. I'm actually sorry I wasted 3 years in the US army.
5% ??I understand that with 20 millions thrown in unemployment and 800,000 confirmed cases, people are deeply worried about their economy. With about 5% risk of dying when infected, some people think it's worth the risk to gather in protests.
If you look at infected or deaths per million, the US is not very hard hit yet. Spain has about 3.5 times as many compared to the US in death rate.
Essentially, you're wrong statistically, and here's why... The CDC website in america instructs people NOT to get tested unless they have life threatening symptoms (to flatten the curve), so there's not way to know the denominator of the equation you propose in the USA in any of the math.Median age in Spain and Italy is 45. Median age in US is 38.
The mortality rates for Covid-19 double from the thirties to the forties.
The mortality is 6x the thirties when you are in your 50s.
17x in your 60s.
You get the drift with this.
I am talking about the outcome of the registered cases.So you're saying 36% of the people who get Covid 19 virus die?... How is that possible when the CDC says that 80% of those who get the virus have little to no symptoms at all?...
