Until today, I was of the opinion that people were just stupid.
The pandemic made me realize, people are stupid, shallow, irresponsible, immature and a million other things that go with being an idiot.
When the Novel Coronavirus break-out started, every single government, health agency, doctor, scientist… all of them were on their toes. It was when the number of cases were almost negligible.
Now, when the virus is starting to reach its peak, people are treating it as a normal part of their daily lives. I don’t really understand how, but they are.
Blaming others, giving and believing stupid-ass theories, making idiotic assumptions, boycotting and burning products, reopening non-essential places like malls and temples, mosques, etc., and making some really worrying and terrifying claims like the rapid development of ‘A Vaccine’.
None of it is helping. But people are still doing it.
Let me ask you question. While taking a test, do you try to answer the question or just keep contemplating over why, what or who asked the question, or what made them come up with an idea to ask such a question in the first place?
For me, I usually try to find a solution to the question. I have data that shows that my way has been proved to be more efficient in being able to solve a problem.
Also, if you study History or Literature, do you sign up for an exam that requires mathematical or technical skills?
To be more precise, do you, after spending a year trying to perfect your History, go out and open a medical clinic?
I would like to believe that you don’t. Because if you do, many people are going to get screwed really bad.
So, unless you can give a theory with data to back it and stand by it on your own, don’t.
Don’t listen to the news. Don’t read posts on facebook, instagram and whatsapp and think you know it all.
99.99% of those posts are cooked up by the admins of pages, groups, etc. who, apparently weren’t good at academics, as a result of which they are doing what they are doing.
And I am also not asking you to trust my theory. Blindly!
Never trust anything or anyone.
Don’t be more stupid than you already are.
Or, are you more stupid than I think you are?
Guess we’ll never know.
P.S. Sometimes, even the best of us can make mistakes. And you people really want to trust the data coming out of news channels, hypocrite governments, social media and some ‘stupid scientists’?
