Journaling the Coronavirus (COVID19) Pandemic,
June 1, 2020
So, did you think, when I predicted that an ‘ignition point’ would set off the violence, that I was kidding two months ago?
You cannot shut down the economy without shutting down, and threatening to kill, all those who are so dependent upon it for survival. Humans will fight for survival. The ignition point, or event you are watching on your television right now, is about race and police over-reaction, but the result is not racial. The result is the ignition point I discussed earlier. It is much more extensive and serious than a racial issue.
It is about hunger, exposure, and the true killers of humanity over time. This is the beginning, and I so hope the police, political and military entities of our country do not over-react to allow this nightmare to grow and prosper to the point that we are all hurt seriously, and possibly terminally, by its effects. The virus is, and was, nothing in comparison.
The reaction to the virus may touch us all in so many ways, however, and that ‘touch’ may be laced with substantial pain, or worse.
This is the Place to share your Thoughts without idiots censoring.
Although I do not tolerate animus toward each other.
I like to think that the people participating in this juvenile stone age behaviour are a small minority of the population.
I agree, Lucky
As long as Soros funds BLM, Antifa, and move on .org. , this crap will continue. Now getting intel that says ANTIFA is cruising communities photographing police cars in yards to be used for retaliation.
This is not going to end well.
Follow the money, it may surprise you who is funding these thugs….
Where do you think the major source emanates from, Art?
I wake up every morning wondering just which country I’ve awakened in..’cause it sure as hell ain’t gonna be the same as the one I went to bed in last night.. I agree fully with Mike’s post above and will only add that from my perspective, whatever this current change is, those that have wanted a fight all along seem to be getting one.. Peace be with you Sir, keep yer eyes open and yer head down…Paul

Race is one component. Have vs have nots is a component. Political ideology is a component. Hunger for power is a component. Manipulation of base instincts is a component. The dark side of human nature is a component.
The politics, media, pop culture, and life styles of our times feed these impulses, these components of what we are living now.
Even worse than already manifest, and more is yet to come.
As always you demonstrate great insight, Mike.
Thanks for commenting.
Jim your posts are so packed with ideas, with your musings they open up my mind to volumes. These are not the kind of eventful, stimulating times I’ve ever desired.
The other day I sat in front of the TV watching destruction after destruction after destruction heart broken and not being prone to depression, I believe I experienced it fleetingly, but consuming me that night.
I have friend whose Muse is a Hindu belief system and he’s able to wrap all this up as recreation, as constructive rebuilding on Earth in the world of illusion.
That detached perspective gives him distance from experiencing the emotions I experience.
He also packs a pistol, keeps some long guns handy, and watches his back.
As always, your input is appreciated, Mike
What do you think all of the “armed” citizens would eventually do regarding
Invasion into a neighborhood?
Look what we have in Seattle this weekend June 12, 2020.
