Finally, I have something serious to complain about. I don’t remember the last time it was so blindingly obvious that the world is completely filled with idiots.
There’s a thing going around the world called the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). It’s severity is about the same as a cold. Maybe a flu. And the world has gone completely nuts over it.
If ever you needed evidence that we have way too much – this is it. Everyone hiding at home, everything getting shut down, grocery stores getting overrun due to imaginary shortages, all because.. if you’re 80 years old and have several life-threatening conditions and live in a nursing home where you went to die – this virus may push you over the edge and you’ll actually die.
I’m not surprised about the hipster hype. I’ve seen it plenty of times in the past and it’s nothing new. I am surprised that fully intelligent people have thrown their brains out the window so that they could participate in the hysteria.
The hipsters who have no responsibilities are always looking for someone to point the finger at to blame. That’s where the meaning in their life comes from, that’s their source of excitement. But if you are ambitions in your career, and/or are trying to raise a family, and/or at least have some meaningfull hobbies – why would you participate in this stupidity?
My kids were doing skating, gymnastics, and a mandarin camp this week. All those organisations are run by reasonable, hard working people. But everything had to get shut down. Either due to their governing bodies’ direction or the government shutting down the schools.
The schools were only shut down because the teachers were on strike. There was never any danger to children. Closing the schools could have no other consequence – adults had to stay home, therefore government-run facilities had to shut down, with those workers went anyone who has a salary and sick days, and the athletic or recreational facilities lost demand, and now? Now we’re in a state of escalation of commitment (the sunk cost falacy) where noone wants to admit they helped cause this big mess.
We’re going to be paying this for a long time. The poor as usual are screwed. No work, no benefits. The rich will be fine as they always are. And the majority in the middle will ultimately pay for the crazy self-induced loss of productivity.
You should all be ashamed of yourselves. Find something worthy and real to occupy your time, and stop feeding the hipsters. Otherwise – enjoy the coming economic depression you’ve helped to create.
