Covid-19 PanICdemic/Plague:  TSD/PTSD In The New Plague War.  A New Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC)? (April 27, 2020)

. . .

K          “We are in the halcyon days of the Plague.”

J          “That is what I fear.”

. . .

K          “First responders and healthcare workers are taking over from the military as the new heroes in America.”

J          “In the near future, the RNs and the MDs and the EMTs will be allowed to board planes before others board.  Although we will not be boarding as often.”

. . .

K          “They will board the planes that you and I personally bailed out after the owners looted and plundered the companies and bailed on ordinary Americans.”

J          “The Kleptocracy never sleeps.  The Kleptocracy is far more virulent and a much greater threat than the Virus.  I suffer from ongoing Traumatic Stress Disorder (TSD) and carom between being outraged and being enraged at another carefully planned economic coup d’état.  They are already organizing and planning the 2030 economic coup d’état.”

. . .

J          “In this War on the Plague, the RNs and the MDs and the EMTs are suffering and will suffer the same PTSD that the PFCs and the CPOs and the NCOs suffer.”

K          “In most shooting wars, there are a few minutes of intense activity followed by hours or days or weeks of boredom.  For the First responders and healthcare workers there were and are hours and days and weeks of intense and unrelenting activity followed by a few moments of sleepless respite and restless rest.  They too are now suffering the TSD you talk about in real time.”

J          “The source and nature of the PTSD is quite different.  When most members of the military later have an opportunity to reflect on the designated enemy, they realize and acknowledge that they had no quarrel with the designated enemy.  They were killing innocent kids on behalf of nefarious corporations.  That realization creates even more confusion, frustration, outrage, anger and often self-destructive behavior.  However, there is nothing benign about a Virus that is not burdened with a conscience and does what it is designed to do . . . to maim and kill you.  This Enemy is the acknowledged Enemy of humanity.”

K          “Both groups also have one experience in common.  The ordinary grunts in the military were lied to and betrayed by those in political power and directly by the REMFs.  The RNs and the MDs and the EMTs in the Plague War were and are lied to and betrayed by those in power such as the CDC, the WHO, the MSM, the Surgeon General and so many others in power.  The ‘Plague of Lies’ still plagues us in the ‘War on the Plague’ that will haunt us for years.”

J          “For many health care professionals, the PTSD in large part is regret which is so corrosive and destructive.  In the past, I have interrogated myself many times wondering if I could have done more.  They are also realizing that the treatment protocols they did not establish but implemented in the best of faith were at times wrong, incomplete or inadequate.”

. . .

J          “In the larger population, everyone must deal with ravaged and devastated psyches.  A woman who disregarded my advice in early February to buy and use one mask today and save 500 masks tomorrow resorted to and repeated the government lie.  She flashed on contemporary ‘virtue signaling’ and proclaimed that the masks do not work and should be given to health care workers.  No, wear one.  However, if she is self-aware and if the thought ever dawns on her that she is using a lie to lie to herself and to lie to others, the psychological damage is compounded.”

K          “Someone in February said the idea that this flu is anything more than the sniffles is a ‘stupid’ fool.  He will find fifty different ways to rationalize his position until the day he departs the planet.”

. . .   

J          “There are at least three truths that are debilitating if not devastating.  I must talk myself to sleep.  First, there has never been a vaccine for any coronavirus including for the common cold despite tremendous efforts to find one.  Second, the world record for finding a vaccine is four years for measles after a concerted effort by dedicated and hard-working scientists toiling day and night to find a vaccine.  Third, the Plague seems to be mutating regularly which makes it a moving target to hit.  Oh, and fourth, add the emerging concern that any natural immunity may only be temporary which is related to three.”

K          “Fifth, and never forget that man had a hand in creating the Virus and designed it to elude a vaccine.  If we are not honest about its origin, we will never find a solution.  Sixth, any vaccine is likely to have more side effects than a natural or existing remedy.  And seventh, never forget that Big Pharma is concerned first with profit and will create a vaccine only if there is a profit and will attack any possible remedy that it does not control and market.” 

J          “There is all that.  These thoughts whirring around keep me from sleeping and then when I do nod off they awake me.”

. . .

K          “We disagree about what I facetiously describe as the ‘Trumpi Trifecta’ that may work if given at the right time in the right proportions to the right individuals who have been screened for some concerns.”

J          “In the land of the red, white and blue, we now have ‘red state medicine’ and ‘blue state medicine’ to guide us.  States have been described as laboratories of policy and are now petri dishes of competing protocols.”

K          “As a nation, we will obtain results from South Dakota and Utah and other states and countries.  We must decide which is the ‘red pill’ and which is the ‘blue pill’ in a world where just about everyone is lying to us about what is going on and which pill we should pop.  Taking the wrong pill has consequences.  Those who prescribe the wrong pill will be able to confabulate enough rationalizations to stumble through their lives.”

J          “We do agree that each of us should take ionophores that are available in green tea and yellow onions and other sources and then allow zinc with an appropriate copper chaser to flood the cells.”

K          “Go natural.  I am convinced that plant-based general pathogen destroyers and existing remedies will be the only viable treatments and solutions.”

. . .

K          “The country needs to keep its minds occupied and its hands busy.  The country needs to establish a new version of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC).  The kids cannot safely go back to colleges and universities this Fall.  This is the break and the opportunity for the kids to take a break in the assembly line of life and undertake productive social work on the nation’s infrastructure for a livable wage.  The older participants can provide experience and perspective.” 

J          “Almost everyone wants a hand but not a hand out.  Many folks may state that they hate their job, but they want to have a job to hate.  I cannot imagine a more important government program at this time.”
