Day 50

2 New cases. 3 Recovered cases. Ratio of recovered cases to active cases is still 91%. This number is going to climb slowly from here on out, but climb it shall.

In other news today I found the video report below…

 

…and hope it is not inappropriate to quote Winston Churchill.

“Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

 

In the meantime Covid-19 burnout continues worldwide. People are tired of there being such an inconvenient thing as a global pandemic and hearing about it endlessly. Because I am sensitive to everyone’s feelings I am going to stop going on about the contagion. We as humans have seen much worse and survived to invent his one. The worldwide economy is reverberating discordantly, the skies are empty of chem-trails and the seas are getting cleaner by the day. Anyone who was reading has nodded off or found better ways to amuse themselves under whatever version of ‘lockdown’ they’re under, so it’s time to move on. If I don’t make it, I’ll send up a flare. If I do make it, you know where to find me, studying Kiwi and Mandarin and watching closely as one era ends and another begins.

Not having Covid-19 to kick around any longer I have decided to branch out into clairvoyance and share some predictions which will come true very shortly. It is my hope that they may help you to plan your soon to be changing future.

  1. In response to the collective impotence and lack of vision evinced by the rest of the world and as a follow on of its already stated policy towards Taiwan, China is going to take over the renegade island militarily. It will crush all major resistance within three months of the start of hostilities (which will not be called hostilities) and will commence re-educating the survivors with extreme prejudice. There will be ham-handed attempts by America to intervene through a series of useless U.N. resolutions, vague bluster and empty threats, while China, under the policy of We Own Everything except Covid-19, will shut down all maritime traffic through the South China Sea save for its own commercial and military vessels.
  2. A full court diplomatic and economic press will tie the hands of every country on the planet, giving China time to present the takeover as a fait accompli. As the nation of Taiwan will no longer exist (just ask China) the United States will reason, quite logically and conveniently, that it no longer has to adhere to any treaty obligations it had with the former non-nation. They will hoist a Mission Accomplished banner and leave the area before the paint on the new signs at Taipei’s airport has a chance to dry. What once was called Taiwan-sheng or Taiwan province will cease to exist on paper even as it is subsumed by the invaders who will name themselves something innocuous but patriotic. Something snappy like The Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere Forces of Reunification. What? It’s been used before? No matter. Move along please. Nothing to see here.
  3. China’s Renminbi, or Yuan, will become a global currency and will challenge the U.S. Dollar for supremacy. https://www.thebalance.com/u-s-debt-to-china-how-much-does-it-own-3306355
  4.  China will land men and women on the moon, set up a permanently manned base     there and claim ownership of the Earth’s satellite. https://www.space.com/13331-china-space-race-moon-ownership-bigelow-ispcs.html
  5. https://www.china-briefing.com/news/china-proposes-establishing-moon-based-special-economic-zone/
  6. China will take over Australia and New Zealand through aggressive commercial practices and strategic purchases of key industries and land blocks.
  7. Before item number six happens I will have shuffled off this mortal coil.
  8. Before I do that I predict that I will say I told you so.

    Your Blog is always such the wake up call of life. So many things to ponder and decide what disparity to tackle today. Humanity seems extraordinarily bad at assessing what level of gruesome risk we can handle today. We have so many cognitive biases that make us over react and under react to all sorts of dangers. It is not enough to be accurate, concise and logical. Maybe life doesnt get any better than this, or worse, and what we get is just what we are willing to find, which are small wonders where they grow. Which is one reason I find myself immersed in your journals with such diligence. Carry on.

      Dear Justin,

      Your comment is an answered prayer. A light in the forest. A sign.

      Thank you.

      Your articulate assessment of humanity and of my small wondering part of it gives me hope and fills me with gratitude. As for your gentle conclusion, thank you for that, too.

      Sincerely,

      Doug

      P.S. Are there other outlets for your creativity that may be discovered?

    Phew! After that comment, whatever I say will be inadequate, but I did want to say that quoting Winston is pretty much always appropriate. 🙂

    Cheers!

      Dear Janet,

      Are you a Winston fan? Boris seems cut from the same cloth.

      Thanks for stopping by. You and Bill stay focused and well away from the herd.

      Cheers,

      Doug
