I cant imagine being that unfeeling.  6k have died worldwide and it's just beginning to spread through many other countries.  

 

Far, far more than that number die ever day of everything except COVID-19.

The greatest generation weren’t great because they were nihilists. They were great because they recognized human life was worth sacrificing for.

They gave and risked their lives for liberty. Not the other way around.

I see some of the more vile incel misanthropes on the board are on the pro-eugenics movement now. :rolleyes:

When nature does it, it's not eugenics, it's Darwinism.

I think this thread has clearly illustrated the schism in values between some of the members here.

"Hey grandpa! Thanks for saving the world from Hitler and Hirohito and helping build this nation into the greatest economic engine on the planet! :D For your reward, you get to go drown in your own gurgling septic pile of shit! " :rolleyes: 

They're not really around to witness your utter ignorance of history.

While what you say is true, I have interacted and "known" some posters on this board long enough to know them to be misogynistic and/or misanthropic nihilists with zero regard for life or those who enjoy theirs.

Perhaps you should recognize not everyone shares your value for life at all costs. Guess we can solidly pencil you in as "pro-life".

My take on what I’ve read of this thread:

 

There sure are a bunch of asshole on this forum.

Would you name them for me?  I haven't seen any.

Its amazing to me that there are people here with little to no regard to the grief and suffering of others due to this event.  

It's as if they are welcoming a thinning of the herd, so to speak.  

I just hope those that feel this way are directly affected in some way

People keep saying things like, oh the flu still kills more, etc. But this isn't replacing the flu (something that honestly people probably don't give enough of a shit about), this is in addition to the flu. Like 1-2% estimated mortality rate or not, should we do nothing about this?

No it won't stop it. But it will slow down infection rates, which is important because the healthcare system can be overwhelmed. That's when shit would get bad.

Wow, simply wow. This virus is bringing out both the best and worst in people. I guess that shouldn’t be surprising.

How about we call them realists?  Folks are gonna' die from this virus, just like folks die from other viruses.  It's not a good thing, but no amount of caring will change it.  You can discuss it from a scientific/mathematical standpoint, or a heartfelt socially concerned standpoint, or a cold acceptance of the facts standpoint.  None are wrong.  None make the individual an asshole.  It's all just a matter of how you view the facts.  They are facts.  People are going to die.  Getting emotional about it won't change that any more than stocking up on toilet paper will.  It's fine if someone wants to recognize the tragic human side of the situation, and equally fine (IMO) if someone wants to see it from a bigger and less emotional point of view.  It's all the same picture in the end, and none of the viewpoints make anyone an asshole.

Personally, I hope I don't lose anyone I care about and am taking common sense steps to address that.  I'm also in the higher risk population and I'm taking common sense steps to address that but if someone wants to look at the situation from a pragmatic standpoint instead of an emotional one I don't see a problem.  It's just way too touchy-feely to expect people to examine the tragedy of the worst case scenario IMO.  I think we need to see it in perspective.

I hope you don't mind but I put all your posts together as individually they kind of suck as one-liners.

1. By this bullshit logic we should suspend all efforts at fighting disease. Hell, let's limit admittance to healthcare facilities to people who only got injured using man-made machines like a Goddamn American, right? Heart attack? Stroke? Cancer? GTFO pussy. Go die in the street like Darwin intended. :rolleyes:

2. Idiot-Button25x25.jpg

3. What kind of drunken drooling f*cktard equates the desire to look out for one's senior and elderly family members with being pro-life? :blink: Not to mention, I respect the wishes of all those Americans over 65 who don't want to suffer and/or die and wish to act accordingly.

Those of you malformed middle-aged midget cranks who can't seem to grasp that or want to go lick a shopping cart and die are more than welcome to. Just go sequester yourselves in some front range bouncy castle and GTFO so the rest of us can lay low and keep on keepin' on, m'kay?

They also rationed gasoline, meat, and clothing; to provide support for those who could actually do something productive about the situation.

That’s what the situation called for, this time it calls for people to stay away from each other.

Life is hard. Nature's a rough master. The show must go on.

This is turning very quickly into a "cure" that is worse than the disease.
