The title of this post is a quote from Franklin D. Roosevelt’s inaugural speech. He was the 32nd president of the USA from 1933 until his death in 1945, spanning the depths of the Great Depression to the end of the WWII.
Fear is the contagious disease we need to fight against. It is infecting people’s mind and bodies; not only our biological bodies but mostly our social bodies.
We are at war with an invisible enemy of biological origins that has generated a global contagion of confinement and retreat, unprecedented in the history of the world.
This fear has propelled a fragmentation of social bodies and set in motion the destruction of world economies. This destruction will degenerate in civil unrest, violence and world conflicts.
Fear alters the perception of reality and incapacitates the ability for individuals to reason normally: Only a minority of people will be infected and die due to diagnosed covid-19, whereas a great majority of people will be infected and affected by the destruction of the economy.
To win the war we must not retreat but face the enemy heads on. Like any war we must move forward and expect casualties.
The propagated remedy so far will be far more destructive to humanity than the biological virus itself.
CUI BONO: Who benefits from propagating the destruction of the economy?And for what reasons?
