“Woke” Government

Hello,

What we are currently playing a dangerous game here in Hidalgo County, Texas.   We are gambling our future on a notion – that the reason we are having a surge is because we didn’t lock down enough. 

This notion is based upon the experience of one state – New York.

People are looking at New York and asking:  Why are they not having a surge?

They are concluding that New York is not having a surge because they locked down appropriately. The state of New York was on lockdown for 78 days beginning on March 21 and ending on June 7. They began Phase 4 in part of a very protracted reopening yesterday.

The feeling here is that Governor Abbott opened too soon.  

Obviously we weren’t woke enough.

I’m not sure about that.

If people are going to conclude that we here in Hidalgo County opened too soon, then they must explain why a protracted lockdown in New York  is currently successful.  Maybe it’s too soon to tell if New York is successful.  Maybe New York has not opened up sufficiently to see true results.

If New York proves to be successful, why will it be successful?  After all, Dr. Fauci told us that herd immunity was not possible.  Presumably someone someday with the coronavirus will enter New York City.  What then?

I suspect you will see a resurgence in NYC.  I can not see how you can not have a resurgence.  

The thinking on the pro-lockdown side, I assume, is that New York lowered the R-naught value to the point that the virus can not infect anyone. 

The R-naught value lowers when an infected person infects a lesser amount of new, previously uninfected people.  

Since we did not and still do not have reliable wide-scale testing which tests everybody, we can only infer that the virus has infected less new people because the death count has gone down and the number of hospital admissions have gone down in New York.

Thus people conclude that the R-naught value has gone down.  This is important because both Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci  point to the R-naught value as the Holy Grail in beating the coronavirus.

Lower the R-naught value and you lick the disease.

What they fail to consider is that in your usual pandemic, uninfluenced by governments and social engineers with crazed theories in hand, the R-naught value goes down because people have become immune.  

The immune people begin to outnumber the non-immune people.

Yet in the state of New York, many people, the majority, have not become immune; they have only been locked up and put away in a closet.  

Some day they must come out of that closet.

What then will happen?

Will we see a surge in New York?  I think so, and I don’t think the government will be able to cover it up.  New Yorkers are not known for their passivity.

What will the government say then?

I think the government will tell New Yorkers that they weren’t sufficiently pure in their thinking.  This is generally the hallmark of a communist, politically correct, woke government.

The government will then call for an even more stringent lockdown.

That one won’t work either.

The Real Coronavirus

Hello,

Palo Alto was behind the lockdown. 

Something this nutty, this ill-conceived, this antisocial, this Marxist, could only have come from the mind of a geek steeped in mathematical purity.

Bill Gates is the poster boy and the spokesman for this movement.

In addition to that, he is a very sick, greedy man. His greed knows no limits.

What you are witnessing is a takeover of the economy on education and healthcare.

His company Microsoft should have been called the United States Government Computer Company. For over 40 years Microsoft ripped Americans off with endless upgrades. To no one’s surprise the United States government did not protect us from his predatory behavior.  Indeed the government was in league with him.

Regarding coronavirus, it is one of Bill Gates’s companies that provides tel-education to students who no longer go to regular classrooms because of the lockdown.

Gates is heavily into telemedicine also.  

This is Bill Gates’s vision for the future – people sitting at home.

It is Bill Gates’s companies who will spearhead the movement to develop a vaccine for the coronavirus.

Anthony Fauci is one of his friends.

Remember, Anthony Fauci was the man who scared the nation into a lockdown.

Even if one of Gates’s companies does not invent the coronavirus vaccine, his company will get in on the action somehow.

If Gates’s vision for the future was good and decent; I would be the first on board to help him, but it is not a good vision.

From a  pediatrician’s perspective, telemedicine is a vastly inferior methodology for practicing medicine. If we turn to this methodology, your health care will suffer tremendously. There is no substitute for a face-to-face encounter. This is a position that is not negotiable.

Even for simple problems, telemedicine is a bad idea. First of all, there is no such thing as a simple problem in healthcare, and the doctor who thinks such is a fool. Oftentimes patients come into the office with simple problems that reveal more complex issues. Additionally, if the regular pediatrician has his bread-and-butter – that being colds, sore throats and conjunctivitis –  siphoned off by the Greedy Gates Telemedicine Service, he’ll have to close shop. And then who will manage the more complex problems? Who will detect your child’s appendicitis?

Can you see the bleak future if Gates prosecutes his vision?

When patients come into the office I ask the mom and the child how their tel-education is working out. They say it is difficult.

Of course.   What’s missing is human interaction.  A smile, a word of encouragement means so much more in the flesh.

Human interaction makes kids feel better; a person who feels better, learns better.

Kids enjoy school.  Bill Gates thinks schools are obsolete.

His virtual schools will manufacture standardized, algorithmic, disconnected automatons unable to work empathetically together as a creative, cohesive team.

The Führer would be proud.  These are just the type of units a fascist leader requires to wage war and keep people in line.  

Obey.

What you are seeing today is a classic case of eagerly taking a new technology and applying it to every aspect of human endeavor – with disastrous effects. It does not necessarily follow that a new technology can be applied to everything with good results.

If Bill Gates had been educated broadly and properly he would have understood this. Think Week – during which Bill goes off to ruminate –  isn’t going to cut the mustard.

What happened to Bill Gates was that he dropped out of college in order to pursue a career in business. What he missed out on was the value and human interaction that a human professor can impart to your education.

Someone can be intelligent but poorly educated. Education is a series of building blocks that allows you to climb upon a platform and see further.

Bill Gates did not receive that education at a formative age.

Yes, he ultimately received a degree from Harvard, but this was an honorary degree.  He did not go through the rigorous course work that would earn him a legitimate degree.  Nor did he receive the wisdom and perspective a kind teacher can provide.

We are therefore in trouble because what we have is a very rich and powerful man who is exerting exorbitant influence upon our lives.

We need to step back and think.

We need to identify the real coronavirus – Palo Alto, and its crown prince, Bill Gates.

Palo Alto and Bill Gates will snuff out of all significant human interaction on the planet.

Our lives, our education, our health,  what goes into our minds and bodies will be obsessively monitored and controlled by the state.  

This is what we need to immunize ourselves against.

Sincerely,

PS  When I was in college I could not grasp the importance of ex-communication. One fine day, in history class, we discussed the Pope’s use of ex-communication as a weapon against subversives.  I raised my hand and asked the professor, “Who cares about ex-communication? So what if you are ex-communicated?”  I was evaluating ex-communication in terms of the society that we have today. The professor responded: “Oh, no, ex-communication was a big deal. If you were ex-communicated, you had no voice.”   The professor’s further amplification helped me round out my views of truth, speech, and the separation of church and state.  It helped me understand that ex-communication then was tantamount to being banned on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter today in a secular world controlled by a secular church whose popes are people like Bill Gates.
