No Accident


This always was the plan.

Colleges and universities unwittingly became part of the plan, though a few already have pulled back somewhat.

As of August 28, Georgia College & State University in Milledgeville, Georgia had recorded 514 cases of Covid-19 among students and 535 cases overall. That seemingly pales in comparison to the more than 560 recorded at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and at the University of Alabama. However, over 30,000 students attend each of those institutions while only approximately 7,000 go to Georgia College.

At the University of Mississippi in Oxford, nearly 350 students and employees had tested positive for the coronavirus since dorms opened in mid-August. At James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia 17% of tests came back positive, yielding over 600 confirmed cases.

Each college has addressed the matter, aggressively or otherwise, in what is a blow to at least two figures in the White House. On Tuesday we learned that Scott Atlas, a neuroradiologist, fellow at the Hoover Institution, and Administration pandemic adviser 

has advocated that the United States adopt the model Sweden has used to respond to the virus outbreak, according to these officials, which did not impose lockdown orders or close most schools and businesses. Instead, Sweden recommended social distancing measures and masks, while keeping bars and restaurants open with restrictions.

As of early August, 5,763 people had died of Covid-19 in Sweden, almost five times as many as in Denmark, Norway, and Finland together.

As more students return to campus, there will be more coronavirus infections. The disease will spread and people will die. Those who are most vulnerable are individuals with pre-existing conditions and therefore, it is time to remember that we are led by someone who has boasted of being "proud to have that German blood, no question about it- great stuff" and has argued

All men are created equal – that’s not true. When you connect two race horses, you usually end up with a fast horse. Secretariat doesn’t produce slow horses. I have a certain gene. I’m a gene believer. Do you believe in the gene thing? I mean I do. I have great genes and all that stuff, which I’m a believer in.
