I’m not really sure. But whatever it is that is killing people – and certainly people are really dying – is being exploited.
Tons of libertarian sites are saying it’s all a joke – a scheme to enslave people – but what they don’t get is there might not be another option. In fact, the reality is humanity is screwed. It’s like if a nuclear war or Dinosaur extinction had happened.
Yes, it is being exploited, but what are you going to do about it, when the thing is real? Wouldn’t a nuclear war aftermath be exploited for tyranny? Of course it would!
The real fact is humanity is cursed for some reason, so people need to dwell on that, or maybe if you’re an atheist, you would just say “bad luck”.
