There's Precious Little Reform In The Human Race
I agree, Mr. King. Corona virus is not like Captain Trips. However, The Stand is proving to be sadly prophetic when it comes to the ways in which modern society responds to a pandemic. I'm not really afraid of the virus itself, but I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't concerned about society's reaction to the virus.
The wild card is in the leadership. Even you with your fantastic dark imagination might not have been able to predict that we would allow ourselves to be ruled by such a blatant con man, or that he would fracture the country to the point where half of them believe that this is all just a big political hoax designed to attack him personally. Nero fiddles while Rome burns - news at 11.
Nothing left to do but wash up and hope for the best. It'll be what it'll be.
