Who knows how our descendants will look back on us? There will probably be continuing amazement at our blind panic, but by then, people will see it much differently. There will be a much better understanding of why we momentarily allowed ourselves to become a Doctorocracy.
The Doctorocracy is government by doctors. In our Doctorocracy, the doctors are "epidemic doctors", the epidemiologists.
As time passes, we will regain our natural sense of proportionality. We will better come to understand that the doctors-in-charge were mostly just plain wrong. Their projections were wrong. Their prescriptions for universal lock-down were theoretical and untried. It will be incredible to people that specialists in one narrow field could have so little knowledge of the impact of lockdown on global mental health. The specialists failed to account for the impact of stopping important medical care on global health. They failed to realize that their prescriptions would produce a pandemic of suicides and domestic violence. Their prescriptions of shuttering and staying locked up have denied millions upon millions access to the greatest natural medication – fresh air and sunshine.
The Doctorocracy won’t soon recede, but at least the panic time will quickly pass. We can then start to reflect on what happened to us. It may be our Doctorocracy turns out to have been a . . . QUACKOCRACY
We have all become damaged goods.
Pandemichondria is the fear of touching objects or people, or being near people, all in the course of ordinary human conduct, and all out of fear of a "pandemic".
Pandemichondria is more contagious than any pandemic virus. At our moment in time, and unlike any other virus, it has infected everyone.
Pandemichondria will also survive any other virus.
