The mass media have at times referred to COVID-19 as the great equalizer, but in truth this Frankenvirus and the disastrous government responses to the epidemic have fallen most heavily on the underclass—workers, small businesses, people of color, the poor, as well as the powerless, children and youth.
SARS-CoV-2 is a highly transmissible biological trigger that, rather than infecting, sickening, and killing healthy and unhealthy, young and old alike, magnifies and exacerbates “pre-existing” medical conditions among the elderly and the chronically ill, preventing the body’s natural defense systems from fighting off the virus.
The chronic disease and comorbidities that underlie the hospitalizations and deaths attributed to COVID-19 clearly affect the underclass and the powerless far worse than others, and the countermeasures implemented to quell the outbreak have been a phenomenal boon for wealthy billionaires while decimating the lives of the overwhelming majority of the world.
Rather than addressing the underlying causes of the pandemic: reckless genetic engineering experiments carried out in unregulated, accident-prone labs such as the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and an epidemic of basically preventible and often reversible chronic disease—obesity, diabetes, hypertension, liver disease, lung disease—that underlie the hospitalizations and deaths triggered by SARS-CoV-2, the authorities tell us the outbreak was natural and that only lockdowns and vaccines can protect us. Rather than calling for focused, targeted protection, preventive supplements, and therapies for those most vulnerable, many of us have fallen into panic or guilt and become victimized by broad-stroke lockdowns, lulled into submission by genetically engineered, rushed-to-market vaccines that are neither properly safety-tested nor effective.
