There's a joke:
"Those who don't study history are doomed to repeat it.
Yet those who do study history are doomed to stand by helplessly while everyone else repeats it."
This captures the essence of the times as worldwide people panic, governments enact draconian social controls, and the economies crash and burn.
It doesn't matter that this is a manufactured panic. Reason, logic, and evidence are thrown out the window.
Real businesses are being destroyed, real incomes are being destroyed.
So if we're all going to get exposed to it, what is the best way to get through it?
What precautions would you take for any nasty flu? Eat right (nutritious), some light exercise, and drink boatloads (but not cruiseloads) of water.
Apparently drinking frequently makes it difficult for the virus to take hold.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
