As you can see, comrades, our situation is shockingly grim. [...] Total vaccination is the only way this thing stops.
Early on in the pandemic, I saw this meme. I don't know if it was in response to the actual situation in Italy or just a joke, (and apologies to our Italian folk here), but I've been thinking about it a lot lately:
Because while I'm sure the vast majority of humankind are actually willing to sacrifice a little to fight the pandemic, SARS-CoV-2 has WAY
too many allies among the human population. Which is depressing, not only because it means more casualties, but every month that goes by just gives the plague rats among us a stupid feeling of being right, even though the opposite is actually true, because they're idiots.
It hurts me more than if they were malicious about it. Instead the idiots are killing people just because they're too stupid and selfish to even conceive of a world that doesn't revolve around them.
