I have written about the absolute idiocy of the “not one life for the economy” mantra. This mantra is being shouted by people who don’t understand what an economy is.
They think it is stocks.
Of course, the economy isn’t stocks – or “stonks,” as the sad force-memers on Twitter call them.
The economy encompasses everything about our lives. It is the means through which civilization is able to exist. The only way you can not have an economy is if you are living in a hunter-gatherer or subsistence farming society. If you have a means of exchange, you have an economy.
We have the most complicated civilization that has ever existed, so it is the most unstable. The entire thing relies on the economy to ensure that we have food, warmth and everything else that is needed to survive.
Someone in a position of authority – namely, the media and the government – should have told these people what I just wrote: they should have told them that an economic collapse means “people will die.”
The UN is already admitting that people are going to starve to death as a result of this lockdown.
Actually, they are saying that the virus is going to do it, which is very cute.
The UN are some very cute people.
The world is facing multiple famines of “biblical proportions” in just a matter of months, the UN has said, warning that the coronavirus pandemic will push an additional 130 million people to the brink of starvation.
Famines could take hold in “about three dozen countries” in a worst-case scenario, the executive director of the World Food Programme (WFP) said in a stark address on Tuesday. Ten of those countries already have more than 1 million people on the verge of starvation, he said.
He cited conflict, an economic recession, a decline in aid and a collapse in oil prices as factors likely to lead to vast food shortages, and urged swift action to avert disaster.
“While dealing with a Covid-19 pandemic, we are also on the brink of a hunger pandemic,” David Beasley told the UN’s security council. “There is also a real danger that more people could potentially die from the economic impact of Covid-19 than from the virus itself.”
The WFP had already warned that 2020 would be a devastating year for numerous countries ravaged by poverty or war, with 135 million people facing crisis levels of hunger or worse. Their updated projections nearly double that number.
The agency identified 55 countries most at risk of being plunged into famine in its annual report on food crises, released this week, warning that their fragile healthcare systems will be unable to cope with the impact of the virus.
“These countries may face an excruciating trade-off between saving lives or livelihoods or, in a worst-case scenario, saving people from the coronavirus to have them die from hunger,” the report said.
Ten countries were singled out as particularly at-risk, after housing the worst food crises last year; Yemen, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Nigeria and Haiti.
Most of those countries have so far been spared the worst of the coronavirus pandemic, with the epicenter moving from China to Europe to North America, but the state of their healthcare institutions means even relatively small outbreaks could be devastating. To date, more than 2.5 million cases of the coronavirus have been confirmed globally.
The Jews, women and neo-Nazis pushing for this lockdown cared a whole helluva lot about the lives of obese black people, so I assume they also care about these non-obese black people who are going to die.
I personally do not care very much about the lives of black people. Not that I wish them harm, but I certainly don’t care as much as Jews and neo-Nazis, who are willing to destroy everything in the name of protecting them. As they say on Twitter: “if we only save one fat nigger, it is worth collapsing the entire society, Heil Hitler 1488 for the beauty of the Aryan woman.”
So I mean – whatever.
But here’s the thing: right now, the UN and the media are saying that this economic collapse is going to be as bad as the Great Depression, when in reality, it is going to be exponentially worse. So if they are saying third worlders are going to starve, there is a very good chance that we’re all going to starve.
In fact, I can pretty much guarantee that we are going to see food shortages in America, Britain and elsewhere in Western Europe. There simply is no way to keep the “food section” of the economy running while the rest of it has collapsed.
Will we starve to death? Right now, my thinking is, probably not. However, the shelves are going to be empty, and we are going to be hungry, lining up for free food. That is going to go on for years, if not decades.
The worst part is that the evidence shows that if we hadn’t done a lockdown, we’d have had fewer old people and fat black guys dying.
