There’s a gigantic elephant in the room and no one dares to say anything…

So I will.

We now have the technology to create man-made viruses and biological weapons. Pandora’s box has been opened and the genie of biowarfare is now well and truly out of the bottle. Whether you believe the rumors of Covid being man-made, the point is;

It could have been.

If this one isn’t manufactured, the next one can and probably will be. Therefore we in Western societies are in need of an incentive-based system to harness the genius of human innovation and fight these all too real future threats. We must encourage the market toward the production of;

Inexpensive, unobtrusive ventilation systems that extract air upwards and out of enclosed spaces.
Efficient comfortable masks.
Safe indoor disinfection systems.
Anti-viral clothing and building materials.

This is the future whether we like it or not. But we the people can triumph without top-down authoritarian style dystopian models simply by harnessing the brilliance of the hive mind.

As such the role of government is to protect public space, not through top-down authoritarian measures such as punishing, brutal lockdowns but through devolving responsibility for safe air in public spaces to the businesses, organizations, and owners of the space. With the onus on the market to protect the health of their customers, the market will be incentivized.

For those that believe COVID19 is a dark plan to create an authoritarian global order. Put your money where you’re mouth is. Do something to create an alternative. For although you might believe Covid is not dangerous today, the next one will most certainly be.

For those who still refuse to wear a mask on the tube because it “violates (my) civil rights”.

Grow up.
