Let me first start by saying this post is neither political, nor anti-anything. It is merely an observation of what the world looked like through my glasses! If I had to sum up 2020 in 1 word, it could only be described as UGLY.
ug·ly /ˈəɡlē/ adjective: ugly; comparative adjective: uglier; superlative adjective: ugliest
1. unpleasant or repulsive, especially in appearance.
“people in school always told me I was ugly”
2. involving or likely to involve violence or other unpleasantness.
“the mood in the room turned ugly”
The 2020 Hot topic word: Conspiracy
con·spir·a·cy /kənˈspirəsē/ noun: a secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful.
The action of plotting or conspiring.
“they were cleared of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice”
Orange man Vs. Uncle Joe Let the circus begin!
The political atmosphere in our country has torn us down the middle, it has forced people to chose sides, because politicians are so far divided and can no longer seem to find the center. The world watches us and laughs as we teeter on civil unrest and dissidence. The elected officials and corporate criminals have us so far divided, we spend our time infighting as opposed to Uniting.
The Pandemic. It appeared to come out of nowhere, but it came from Wuhan.
We were so busy and obsessed with our own little worlds, that nobody paid attention to another outbreak in China. No worries can’t happen here. Or so the world thought. Here we are a year later and much of the world is heading into another serious lockdown. People are dying, people are struggling to survive because they are unable to work. The world has turned upside down!
The Vaccine. Quite possibly the fastest Trial and approval process in history!
But was it? Coronaviruses are a type of virus. There are many different kinds, and some cause disease. A newly identified coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, has caused a worldwide pandemic of respiratory illness, called COVID-19 (Corona virus disease 2019).
There have been worldwide efforts to create a blanket vaccine that could possibly work on all of the strains of the Coronavirus. These efforts have been ongoing for a number of years prior to this outbreak. While I myself am not a scientist and I cannot say one way or the other if these vaccines are safe, it is what we have been presented with and appears to be our best defense. Just remember , in I am Legend, it’s the cure that turns everyone into Zombies!
In the years to come these are the 3 things I think people will have conspiracy theories about. They will rival the JFK, and Moon landing conspiracies we all loved as kids!
Please tune in for Part 2: I have watched ALL the things, Now what?
