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.
