Coming Soon: Much Better Than SARS-COV2
How we’ve created the best possible system to ensure millions of deaths in the not-too-distant future
Although everyone and their pet hamster is currently terrified of SARS-COV2, under the erroneous belief that 100% of our species will die unless we all practice hygiene theater, a truly serious problem remains entirely unnoticed.
Unlike covid-19, which has killed less than one-tenth of one percent of the population in even the hardest-hit countries, we’ve quietly been creating the necessary conditions for a problem that is likely to kill far more people than the relatively harmless SARS-COV2.
Some people are aware that today we’re coming to the end of the golden era of antibiotics. There are already several bacterial strains that are entirely immune to everything in the pharmacological arsenal. According to the CDC there are at least eighteen different strains of antibiotic-resistant bacteria that are now killing upward of 50,000 US citizens each year. And new strains are appearing constantly. The problem is escalating out of control and many researchers believe it is only a matter of time before antibiotics cease to be meaningfully effective. When that happens, people will begin to die again of infections we’ve not worried about for over sixty years: food poisoning, blood poisoning, and deaths from other forms of contamination. Surgeries will become very hazardous as each wound becomes once more a prime opportunity for bacteria to enter the body. Even childbirth will become more hazardous, especially given the insane US propensity for inducing births that then require the world’s highest rate of C-sections.
How did we arrive at this dire state of affairs?
There have been two main contributing factors, plus a third that may ultimately prove catastrophic. The first factor is, unfortunately, the medical profession. Doctors hate to feel powerless and so handing out pills is better than doing nothing. When magic pills (antibiotics) appeared on the scene after World War II, they became the must-have treatment for practically everything, even for viral infections. As recently as twenty years ago, doctors would routinely hand out antibiotics for viral infections, claiming “they will prevent…
