Great review of the past year. Kicked off my own personal remembrances. I recall internet and talk radio traffic of some new mystery disease out of Wuhan as early as November 2019. I remember thinking then that it needed to be watched because we could trust nothing out of the CCP. It might have been a nothing burger or it might have been an extinction-level event.|
So once it clearly got into our borders (I was unaware of the blood serum stuff at the time) in early January concern rose. As spread continued the lockdown/distancing thing in early March made sense to me to give time to study what we were actually up against. I figured some politics would be played but at the time I had no idea just how badly true science on this was going to be ignored. I'd come to expect it with things like the climate but figured perhaps there'd be a little more honesty in the realm of health because of the "own goal" potential damage of lying. I was very wrong.
As March wore into April I had slowly started to become skeptical that this was anything other than an abject conspiracy and by late May when my Church resumed in-person Sunday services I was very skeptical and figured the narrative would unravel by the end of Summer.
A real turning point for me was this sermon delivered by John MacArthur as he and Grace Community Church decided to stand in defiance of orders in CA:
Unfortunately the groundswell I hoped for never came. The narrative never unraveled and the panic porn was used as a major factor to throw the election to some of the worst totalitarians I have seen hold the levers of power in this country over my 52 years.
So now we do sit on the cusp of a potential extinction-level event but not directly due to the virus but rather the politicized response to it.
