Lightbulb Social Experiments. Is Coronavirus another one? Sure feels like it!

Don't bother with the tin-hat comments. But the more and more you look at this... the more and more it looks like an experiment in social science. There is no other logical explanation.

Sorry but saying there is no other logical explanation does not make it so.

This kind of nonsense post shouldn't be allowed. Amazing.

Really... so what is the explanation for total panic and alarmist actions over something that pales in comparison to a multitude of other things that do not receive a modicum of attention??

Its being WAAAAY overdone! Flu has and will kill more people worldwide. Media isn't helping matters by constantly focusing on it. As far as tin hat stuff, I firmly believe its a weaponized virus. China will do anything to get ahead. Especially since they were forced into a trade deal. Russia and Saudi's are trying to wreck the oil market purposely. It a crazy mixed-up world!

When you mean "social experiment..." do you mean:

- They (I always like when people post that they control something) created a virus, let it loose in an area to fester and get a bunch of people sick and tying.
- Then, they execute their plan to get it moving around the globe
- Then, they get the news folks to write about it non stop, and work with the governments to overreact and underreact to see the impacts
- Then, they get the oil prices to drop so that they can make billions on shorting stocks.

Yup, I'm with you, they are a bunch of smart folks.

Let's revisit that in two weeks. I'm hoping you're right.

This reminds me of riding in carriage and the horse lifts it’s tail. Somebody grab a shovel.

The fact that so many people replying in this thread suffer from such myopic thinking tells me that the need for the control being tested is more than likely easily executed.

That was fun.

Common influenza in US .1% mortality rate. Covoid19 4% mortality rate in US. That is 4,000x more. If you ask me which I would prefer to catch.... The only people comparing the two are idjits and manipulating the numbers to suit their needs, thus, throw a few commas, ignore the ratios, and the common flu looks like a bigger problem. The common flu has hundreds of years here, this doesn't. That said, I'm just careful to wash my hands and use hand sanitizer a bit more than I normally would.

Many “social experiments” are conducted by merely observing the behavior of others without manipulating the scenario to pursue a particular agenda. This is called naturalistic observation.

From that perspective, it has been interesting to see how people respond to stress, and how their personal, interpersonal, and group behavior changes.

At this point, coronavirus represents a much lesser threat than influenza. Wash your hands, cover when you cough or sneeze, and avoid crowded places especially if you are susceptible to respiratory illness.
