#1 First Fauci, then that Emmanuel fuckwad, and now one of the guys I've looked up to for thirty years, saying absolute garbage codswallop, doing little but instilling fear and panic in people. As Rush pointed out earlier this week, is there a vaccine for AIDS or the current flu virus? Why is this one different, besides being the new kid on the block? Whether Gates is doing this accidentially or on purpose is irrelevant. That admiration is now officially gone; maybe it's been building up during this whole Chink Virus thing, but now it's done with.

#3 I can still call it the Chink Virus for the duration, right? I want to be sensitive to other people's feelings & all that bullshit.

#4 So the solution is to depopulate the major cities because major cities are mass gatherings?

#5 Raj, I've wondered/said the same thing. MERS, Ebola, Zika, the first SARS...all pretty bad, but are there vaccines? And, of course, why no similar response like the one we are experiencing now? It is f'in disgusting how this all went down...and how it continues to go down.

#6 Urbanism is a failed model. The effort the elites put into broadcasting that it's "the future" says it all.

#8 #6 Urbanism is a failed model. The effort the elites put into broadcasting that it's "the future" says it all.--M. Murcek
Plagues and Peoples by William McNeill , great book. Throughout history cities have had a negative growth rate where peasants come in from (healthy) countryside to (diseased) urban centers. Only advance in medicine and, more importantly, sanitary engineering have had an effect in the last century or so. The Hubris of the Globalists that they have fundamentally changed this reality is obvious...

#9 /\ There is also the fact that there is a Rule of Thumb that you need people to cluster with more than 40,000 to provide a disease to become endemic. Below that threshold it "burns through" once and there are not enough new victims to keep the cycle spinning around. Globalism and fast, convenient mass transit has made everybody a neighbor ... ain't it grand?

#11 And that's just it magpie; something really bothering me are the catchprases 'New Normal' and 'Unprecedented Times'.

Urban areas being disease ridden hell holes which occasionally burn to the ground was, until the last 150 years or so, normal.

This is the old normal. Disease ridden quarantined urban centers are well documented.

The only thing unprecedented is the number of people with a media platform who are complete twats of history.

#12 Who the f--- elected this shithead to anything?

His grand achievement was to get the better of IBM in the days when no one appreciated the value of an OS. Why does that entitle him to be viewed as a sage on anything?

He's done more than any individual to f--- up American primary and secondary education. He's done nothing whatsoever positive for any other major US institution. Why are we listening to him?

#14 The common trait among our faux-wise oligarchs has always been their contempt for historical knowledge - cf Henry Ford's ridiculous claim that "History is bunk." So said the notorious anti-Semite and Hitler apologist.

Gates is part of a long tradition of ignorant American gazillionaires who believe they're Adam newly-sprung, here to herald the new order that Changes Everything.

#15 "New Normal' and 'Unprecedented Times'.

Exactly. Right before the dot come bust the word was" profits are unnecessary." They are still peddling that but not so successfully now.

So does Bloomberg. Enough to buy him a podium. Didn't work out for him recently.

Well, here since the Great Society, it has been free stuff, free stuff, free stuff to match stuffing the ballot box.

That is where the factories were located.

#23 /\#10...Ask yourself why peasants kept coming? --g(r)omgoru
Because the acreage of agricultural land was constant and the number of adult males could become "surplus" in good periods with no famines, plagues, wars, and did I bring up famines? Unless some new agricultural technology (example deep furrow plows) was developed then there were few jobs for "Second Sons": the First Son inherits, the local lord has few followers, the military (hopefully!) isn't hiring, and so it is off to the cities to look for food / employment. They could also become bandits, I suppose.

I recommend Life In A Medieval Village by Frances and Joseph Gies, particularly it's 'Chapter 6:Marriage And The Family'.

#26 However, g(r)om in those days they were tied to the land to raise and harvest food, then seeking freedom in cities. Today, they're bonded to the city (welfare) so their votes can be harvested by a different set of overlords.

#28 #17..Re Double that.

Btw, The Hong Kong flu (also known as 1968 flu pandemic) was a category 2 flu pandemic whose outbreak in 1968 and 1969 killed an estimated one million people all over the world.
