I was a proponent of just shutting everything down for awhile. Slow the spread. I've changed my mind.
If we shut down, our currency and the economy is going to collapse on a scale that we've never seen or imagined.
With this stimulus package, the writing is on the wall. A monstrous disaster is coming
We can't allow the country to shut down. The ramifications of shutting down are far worse than the consequences of just letting the Coronavirus run it's course.
People might die or not, but we can't do much about that. We might not have the manpower or facilities to deal with the sick, but we have to turn the levers of the economy back on or we will be doubly fucked.
This is no joke. The balance that keeps the wheels spinning is very precise, and it's getting knocked off its axis. There could be a runaway train of unstoppable disasters coming if we allow everything to just shut down.
We need to tell people to go back to their normal lives and use normal precautions. Other than that, you have to accept that you will be getting the virus. You will most likely have mild symptoms. You could get really sick. You might die. It's just the way it is and it has to run it's course, just like the Spanish flu ran it's coarse.
I'm telling you. We are fucked if the economy shuts down and the government starts printing money with no one producing. Fucked.
