In A Time of Crisis you soon know the competency and worth of your politicians
People will get the government they deserve, Joseph de Maistre came up with this notion and I am convinced he is absolutely correct. More relevant to the situation today I am a firm believer that a global crisis such as a pandemic is a test for any government. I am not really interested in politics or criticising any individuals or governments so I speak in general terms if critical and more specific if complimentary.
Well I have to say many countries around the world have been tested and are doing extremely well thanks to good governments and leaders. The challenge has been great sadly so has the death toll in countries around the globe but so many politicians have shows their leadership, resourcefulness and ability to perform under pressure. In stark contrast we have seen in countries very close to home the absolute opposite. We have witnessed politicians and governments make an extreme effort to pretend, that’s right pretend to fight this global pandemic.
Certain governments and politicians have resorted to insinuating their country is immune to the pandemic due to the tropical and humid conditions of their country. None of this had any scientific basis even when neighbouring countries with the same environmental conditions were reporting the outbreak. Some politicians would try to convince the masses that they are yet again in some way immune to this pandemic because of their faith in God and if they continued to pray to God then they would all be protected. Once again with absolutely no scientific evidence that a God exists let alone care about one of the most destructive species on the planet, humans. Some politicians have bragged and boasted they had zero cases of the pandemic when neighbouring countries were reporting a sharp increase in cases. They were just too good, too effective with their quarantining measures. No, they simply were not doing testing, well less than one person per million, hence no reports of the pandemic. Yes these type of responses are typical of a government that is doing a great job and pretending to fight the pandemic.
They the complete fudging of the figures, where would we be without distorting the numbers. A certain government at the onset of hearing the virus was spreading in their country still reported no deaths, wow. No deaths that’s amazing. Off course it was too good to be true. Apparently the hospitals where patients had died did not report the deaths to the governments and that’s why the death toll suddenly jumped from zero to a few hundred. It was the fault of the doctors and medical professionals for not telling the government, yeah right.
The best way to fudge figures is simply to massively under report all the cases by not testing enough and all the deaths by simply not filling in the cause of death on the death certificate. That’s all one needs to do to continue to look good. Unfortunately the WOW, neighbouring countries and anyone with half a brain won’t believe this crap but strangely enough most people in this particular country will because they are brainwashed and stupid.
So now that the figures have been fudged lets hide from the cameras and get spokes people to talk on the governments behalf and not answer any questions. Yes one way communication. Let’s have no national approach to solving this pandemic, lets get the local governors to manage this situation and in a few months when it is completely out of control we will have someone to blame. Awesome we have scapegoats. Finally when the death toll is in the thousands lets have no lock-down, who needs a lock-down.
You get the picture. Countries like Singapore, UK, Italy, Spain, Malaysia New Zealand and Australia have all dealt with this pandemic and are still dealing with it but the effort and steps taken have been truly amazing. These countries, while not politically perfect have the right people to lead them though this crisis. These countries have truly got the governments they deserved and very fine ones indeed. Meanwhile in other courtiers some government officials think women can be impregnated from seamen if they swim in a pool a man has swam in. Yeah speechless. Just remember you too will get the government you deserve. When the world returns to normality we can stop talking about politics and relax with a happy ending massage and visit Bali again.
