I feel like a lot of people are having trouble grasping what’s going on right now. The United States has had over 260,000 people die from COVID-19. At the current rate, we’ll pass 300,000 before Midwinter. That’s literally 100 times more dead people than the attack on 9/11/2001 that served as pretext for the United States to destabilize the whole fucking planet with seemingly endless war and radically increased security and surveillance.
And that’s assuming the rate doesn’t increase.
The situation in the US is far, far worse than it was when the first half-assed “lockdown” went into effect this past spring.
Not only are resources stretched thin, but as this disease has sickened and killed healthcare workers, we are literally running out of them. We have more space for sick people than we have workers to care for them.
Holiday travel will increase the death rate.
Holiday travel will kill thousands of people.
Don’t do it.
Use the internet to talk to your loved ones.
Take just one year off from your traditional celebrations so you don’t kill people.
