Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    Some tips for resisting your inner, right-wing Screwtape.

    I’m not a good person. And neither are you. Even a tiny baby, freshly baptized, is no great shakes. If he makes it to the age of reason, his first order of business will be to get busy sinning. Till then, I’ll grant you, he’s as innocent as an animal. But not by his own virtue — only thanks to a sacrament, and the sacrifice of Jesus. Right up till the moment he dies his eternal fate will be uncertain, as he works out his salvation “in fear and trembling,” dependent completely on God’s grace for every good thing he does. But his sins will be all his. He’ll own those at least.

    My twin beagles are unfallen and incapable of sin, and hence in one way better than every human being who ever lived (apart from like … one guy and His mom).

    Yeah… what interests me is individual countries’ responses to tracking apps, passports, and herd immunity. Because this thing is just going to keep mutating; I doubt very much that we can actually beat it.

    I think it is long past time that we accept that the virus is here to stay and stop all the bleeping power grabs under the guise of a national healthcare crisis. There will be some herd immunity and as always those who are compromised health wise will need to take precautions . But enough of the perpetual hysteria.
