A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

Let’s Say, for Instance…

Let’s say, for instance, that there was an outbreak of a fairly serious respiratory illness. A coronavirus maybe. Perhaps in Canada. Without too much known about it, let’s say people got treated the same way as if they had viral pneumonia, which might be similar. Let’s say everyone did the best they could not to spread it around. Let’s allow that life being the way it is, the severest cases were bound to be people in hospitals, many elderly, who were already pretty unhealthy, and while doctors did the best they could, some died. Then let’s say some rock musicians, of all people, would realize that people’s fear of the illness might be worse than the thing itself, and the economy, especially the part of the economy they inhabit, might tank, which might be a problem larger than the illness. So a few month later, let’s say they organize an outdoor concert, and invite 500,000 of their closest friends and one dominatrix to attend, to simply get together without any trepidation and put an end to the whole shebang.

Now let’s say you didn’t do that.
