It was exactly one year ago, on March 25, 2020, that I realized it was a giant hoax.
Here's how it happened...
During the initial pandemic-narrative-buildup phase (January, February, most of March), I was located in Florida, and during that time, I did NOT respond to it like a "Florida-Man."
Quite the contrary; I took the alleged pandemic very seriously. I was the first person in the neighborhood to start wearing latex gloves to the supermarket. I wiped down every doorknob, after each touch. I left my non-perishable groceries in their plastic bags, in the corner of the house, for 3 days before opening them (to give the "virus" a chance to breakdown). I educated my parents, whom I was staying with at the time, on the proper protocols for transmission mitigation. I washed for 20 seconds, every single time.
And I contextualized the situation like any good Leftist would: As a global "lesson in collectivism." I thought the "Wuhan Bat" was Mother Earth's message to us to wake the fuck up.
It's true. We've made our planet sick. But medical biotech dystopia isn't the medicine.
I thought "covid" was here to teach us to "care about others." As a vegan, I was optimistic that the "wet market origin" would finally and irreversibly turn the world off from meat-eating.
It's true. And they're unspeakably cruel. We should close them. But covid is still a hoax.
I believed that the "pandemic" was the stimulus needed for finally getting humanity into the new paradigm!
It's a good thing this happened. We need to change. But covid is still a hoax.
