If not for media coverage, would you even know there was a global pandemic going on?
That is to say, have you seen any real-world evidence in your daily life that there is global pandemic going on?
Have you seen the carnage and devastation in your community? Have you seen the bodies pile up and watched as tons of people you know fell deeply ill?
Outside of the masks–which I’m now becoming convinced are required mainly to continually remind us that there is a DEADLY PANDEMIC–and the restrictions, have you see any evidence in your life that there is a pandemic?
Do you know lots of people that have gotten extremely sick and/or died due to Covid?
Imagine if there was no media, and you only got your news by word of mouth, would you know Covid existed?
I seriously doubt it.
I have had Covid–I tested positive and everything–and even I wouldn’t have known there was a unique “novel coronavirus” going around. I got it in September right as the weather started to change where I live, and if I didn’t know Covid existed would’ve just assumed it was a seasonal cold/flu. The only thing that I would’ve found unusual was losing my sense of smell and taste for about a week. But I probably would’ve just assumed it was part of the seasonal cold/flu.
Radio technology existed during the 1918 Flu Pandemic, but it was not widely available. All they had back then was telegraphs and newspapers. And yet everyone knew there was a global Flu Pandemic.
There was no media during the Black Plague of the 14th century, and yet everyone knew there was a Plague.
The point is, the proof of these past pandemics was self-evident. People back in those times didn’t need The Media to tell them there was a pandemic going on.
They saw the bodies piling up with their own eyes. They knew plenty of people who got seriously ill, and probably knew people who died.
The same is not true with Covid-19. If we were not constantly bombarded with media fear porn and propaganda, most people wouldn’t even know there was a novel virus going around.
