Yeah, I think you'll survive. Whether or not you choose to believe me in the future isn't one of my more pressing concerns.

Which is why I said "anyone", rather than just "I myself".

UK COVID deaths jump by 50% over the last 7 days.

But remember, the pandemic is over. Boris said so.

Not even for entertainment value?

:(
"At the point in time when bullets can pass through the interdimensional walls, when firepower takes up the entirety and eternity of space and time, all being stuck in a neverending life and death cycle as bullets recover and destroy their bodies in quick succession, no one able to think about anything but the sheer force of the bullets rapidly flying literally everywhere in the Materium, turning the Warp itself into nothing but a sea of semi-automatic weaponry, then there will be enough Dakka. Or atleast almost." - The Emperor.

It was more humor with a little baity spice. He does have a habit of responding to all mandate posts with political careers are over, the politician is stupid, the experts are stupid and need to be ignored, mental well being, you support wearing masks forever!, etc., etc. Basically; copy pasta.

That, of course, would require actions taken to bring the pandemic to an end. I've no such faith in our ruling class.

Certainly the loop will end eventually. But soon? Without a radical shift in public consciousness, I don't think so. This isn't going to stop any time soon unless and until people truly realize that we have to make it stop, and commit to doing that.

Type "Florida covid cases" into Google and have a look at the chart. Mask mandates have been gone for a very long time and Florida's infection numbers have remained on the floor for the past 3 months.
I am an internationalist, geolibertarian anarcho-futurist with syncretic egoist and Marxist tendencies. I consider authoritarianism to be intrinsically and irrevocably evil regardless of the authoritarians' intentions or economic inclinations. I do not recognize any law, government, border, or claim to private property.

I don't believe in kink-shaming unless your kink is submitting to the state.

But the problem is that’s difficult and involves people making changes to their life, while pretending the virus has gone away is easy.
