Paranoid COVID-19

Monday, April 6, 2020

First, let me say I am an avowed paranoid person. Why? Because I have no faith in men or earthly institutions. My faith resides in the Trinity.

What I understand is throughout history man has sought power, wealth and control above all else. So ask yourself what will be the end result of this current "crisis"?

I believe this deadly virus exists but to what extent? All we have is the word of the government and media. I don't know anyone with COVID-19 yet and I pray that I never do. I have not seen the massive death toll in Italy with my own eyes, have any of you?

I don't approach anything with a Republican or Democratic prospective, both parties have repeatedly lied to the public for power, wealth and control.

Look beyond the present to what the outcome of this disease will be, more control through fear. WHO and the CDC with the help of our friendly media have been trying for years to frighten the public with the latest flu or insect born illness with increasing urgency. We are bombarded with pleas to get vaccinated for our own good. How long after this current crisis will a vaccine be invented? How long will it be before the vaccine is mandatory for all to receive?

Are any of you planning on living forever? What freedoms are we Americans planning on ceding for the sake of fear and the threat of our own mortality? News flash, we are all going to die from something and I am sure no one is in a big hurry for the step into eternity but I am more concerned with quality of life instead of longevity.

I am not asking anyone to believe as I do, that sin is the disease, but no matter what creed or faith a person goes by we are on borrowed time. I don't think Mars will be colonized before the next catastrophic earth impact and who really believes man could live in such a hostile environment? Nobody but Hollywood and the people who peddle fear.
