So we spend >700bn on imaginary risks from listening to IYI geopoliticians & journos when in fact the true enemy is a virus you pick up doing high five with the bartender.

Time to fire the Foreign Affairs/Think Tank establishment, close political "science"depts & reset.

Reset.

Remember that the US is not a Republic but (still) a Federation. The president can control foreign access, but not what happens in the States/communes.

Some States such as NY are ahead of the game; they even ordered their own testing kits. Others so so.

I did a tweet suggesting that Bernie wear an American flag pin and it set off a raging 24-hour Twitter debate over whether the American flag is fascist, racist, and/or literal Nazism. And people wonder why professional left-wing activists are repulsive to most of the country?

Why it is SELFISH to not worry more about the virus than other sources of risk even if it does not affect you as much.

Individual precaution does not scale to collective precaution.
