If there was no God there would be no atheists...religion and politics are created by humans to subjugate life....spirituality created life...

Being serious for once. Deadly serious. Are there people who consider Covid to be a hoax? Can recall reading that it nothing more than the flu on here.

@Rob

I saw a couple that were firmly in the hoax camp at the beginning, but they are no longer members. Canít think of anybody lately waving the hoax flag, but I may be wrong.

Iíve had my vaccine (clinically vulnerable) so I believe itís real. 🙂

Covid 19 is a virus, like so many we have had for hundreds, if not thousands of years. The draconian measures implemented and now in play are not the normal historical actions taken for all other viruses that were sometimes weaker and some much deadlier. I will leave that for the intellectual poets here to contemplate and access. History is full of many different situations being taken advantage of by elite power brokers...

However, I would resist speaking down those that question authority. It makes comments sound pro authoritarian. All government actions should be questioned. At least, that is what was taught by the founders of the U.S.

Thanks for replies.

I speaking merely of the here & now. Of thousands dying too fast to be counted. Of compassion & humanity. Can only speak of UK, but covid has (temporary) dissipated all political differences.
I had an academic interest in The Black Death. Hardly a barrel of fun, but even then it was exploited by the powers that be. History & scientists will record the pertinence of Lockdowns. They have worked here. Undisputed.

Anti-Authority? Mmm, the UK & USA are culturally miles apart. Iíd associate AA with Ian Boneís Class War Ė certainly not ANTIFA, the EDL or our equivalent of the proud boys. Opinions are like @rseholes. We all have one. Have no interest in a political debate on an international poetry web-site. If there is no reply, it simply I chose not to read. Or not bothered. It's not ignorance.

I really think that,
the virus doesnt exist
the virus exists

But then again, point blank,
dove-tailed, regardless
It's time to go, in laramie wyoming

Is there anything more disgusting than a politician? The Clintons on the left and these guys on the right. The corruption is everywhere.

True.

I suppose the only difference now is that information is so accessible. It is becoming more difficult for politicians to hide their skeletons.
