Some things are just a physical manifestation of a spiritual process. Half the country wants the president to fail, really they want him to fail by any means possible. Truly the greatest desire of millions is the disruption of the Trump presidency.
It is hard to find something that we want that is not made in China. Karma. Personally I believe the flu was unintentional. However it may have been an answer from a higher authority.
For the cynical, the outcome fits nicely. The rich are safely ensconced within their private estates, whilst the rest of us work or die. A nice designer flu designed to rid the world of the unproductive. Some believe nothing happens without a reason.
So here we are worse off than we were before, and nothing has changed. I do wonder what happens next.
