I think we are all in agreement here that Covid-19 is massively overblown. That being said, people are dying, but the mortality rate is minuscule. Every flu kills more people than Corona-chan. However, because the elites have whipped themselves into a panic, they need to do something. That is indeed what they do: something. It’s just too little, too late. They could as well have done nothing and let this thing burn out by itself, but for that you need balls. You could also have done something productive, like shutting the borders right away and ensuring that there is a national stockpile of food, medication, and medical supplies, but how is that supposed to work if you spend whatever money at your disposal on mass-immigration?
In the current landscape, we can see that China and Singapore have been handling Covid-19 phenomenally well. Outside of Asia, we have Russia and Poland merely shrugging their shoulders. They shut down their borders in January, when the average Western elite dolt was busy getting his/her/xir panties in a twist about the man-made climate change hoax. As a consequence, Poland and Russia can only laugh at the utter incompetency on display in the West.
No matter where you look, you see that our advanced Western democracies may be excellent at promoting homosexuality, celebrating transgenderism, and pushing the Overton window in an attempt to make the sexual abuse of children, euphemistically named “pedophilia”, socially acceptable. When it comes to solving real-world problems like, I don’t know, building an airport according to schedule and within budget or containing the spread of a deadly virus, it doesn’t quite help that instead of a meritocracy, like in China, we have quotas for women and minorities, and cushy posts for radical leftists activists that work on undermining society.
It is downright shocking how incompetent the Western elites have been handling Covid-19. In the presence of ever-increasing case numbers, leading politicians were waxing lyrical on why the borders need to be open while the journo circle jerk chimed in with making the point that we can’t give an inch to supposed far-right extremist who use fear-mongering to get their goals, i.e. closing borders. For me, it was quite amusing to watch German politicians insist that they won’t close the borders while one neighboring country after another did so. Oh, and despite the German border now being closed, the country still accepts asylum requests because, clearly, you need to have the right priorities [German source].
Covid-19 has exposed that our leadership is incompetent. They cannot act according to a plan. They probably cannot even conceive of a plan. Instead, they run around like a bunch of frenzied chickens, reacting to current events in an impulsive manner. This is most obvious when you hear bullshit like face masks not being suitable for civilians, but only for doctors and nurses. The elites are really upset about the rabble not following their guidance. On top, you have generations of people who were raised with leftist ideas, which now has the effect that they lack all discipline. Think of US students going on Spring Break, or the Berlin party crowd who thinks that it is a human right to get their weekly (or daily) fix of drugs [German source], clearly not knowing that due to their lifestyle habits they are not nearly as immune to Covid-19 as they think.
The most obvious sign that countries like Germany are failed states is that they now ignore laws, regulations, and contracts. As has been widely reported, ze Germans repeatedly confiscated large deliveries of facemasks the Swiss had already paid for. You would expect this to happen in a third-world dictatorship. Well, that is indeed the direction the West has been heading. Covid-19 is, comparatively speaking, a total joke. Yet, our elites can’t even handle that. You don’t want to be around when the proverbial fecal matter really hits the fan. You better get used to the state pushing for ever more oppressive measures. Alternatively, you could try to get out while you still can.
