    IMO, Westerners just lack the guts to coup. So what if you have guns, you dare not fight back against people exploiting you and treating you like trash, but you dare shooting people in school and randomly. So much for the social contract.

    here is a fun (and by fun I mean soul crushing) article about how the corona virus is mutating and appears to quite possibly already be in two different strains right now, making creating retro viral agents difficult and fucking up herd immunity.

    Trying for herd immunity without a workable vaccine is crime to humanity.

    Amen, but it has always been the last ditch possibility for some kind of solution if humanity proves to incompetent for anything else

    Yet exactly what Sweden went for.

    Edit: Also, I don't think it's a lack of guts. I think it's an understanding, having had multiple rebellions and domestic terrorist movements, that these tactics seldom actually accomplish anything except to empower those already in power and make everything worse for everyone involved.

    It's an understanding that a genuine revolution is doomed to fail here because of our status as a military superpower, our surveillance of the population, our reliance on technology, our exacting record-keeping, and our hyper-partisan divisions. Any attempt to organize more than "lone wolf" attacks on soft targets gets picked up by the intelligence community and monitored or squashed. Sure, you can turn a protest into a riot. But you can't mount something that could replace the government without the support of those already in power.

    Even in a monolithic group like the Republican Party, you still have dissenting opinions. Shame they're not more influential.

    Edit: Took a look at that Covid article. Basically, it amounts to the version of Coronavirus in Europe and the US being worse than what China had. It's much more transmissible and can reinfect you post recovery. It dominates the Wuhan strain, meaning it could theoretically hit China again, with the previous measures the CCP took being insufficient to stop it the second time.

    It also means that the medical research for a vaccine or treatment may not work on the current virus due to everyone using old Chinese samples as the base.

    There is real fear that the virus will evolved into even deadlier form when it spread to more. Some are not doing enough to prevent the spread.

    Actually, Conway's been bitching at him and calling him a monster for a good long while now. Dude's just got no voice and his wife is a ForeverTrumper.

    Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?!

    ...Anyway, for what it's worth, I've seen similar opinions.
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (F/SN): The last duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (F/SN): Shinji X Shirou lemon
    He Was a Good King (F/SN): Was Beowulf a good king?
    A Fairy Tale of Love and Death (F/SN): A meeting between Scáthach and King Hassan.
    Palingenetic Descension (Tsukihime): The origin of the Tohno family's hybrid nature.

    You mean this thing about Maduro capturing a couple of US citizens that he says tried to overthrow his government?

    Nah, I was talking about how the LA Times' story was incredibly sensationalistic.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Oh, wait, did you mean the "drop the bomb" part? Sorry, that was a (perhaps mistimed) reference to Alphaville's Forever Young. You know, "Hoping for the best but expecting the worst / are you gonna drop the bomb or not?" My bad. :-P
