Will My Blog Go Viral?

This blog is written by a 3-year old.

I may be rapidly approaching 80, but the government is treating me, and the rest of the population, like small children. And we seem to be accepting it. So, here is a 3-year old’s look at the world we are living in.

I hear from family and friends that it is not easy to get a Covid vaccination. Centers across the country are closing down, with no explanation. A family member, living in the very center of the country, was offered a choice: go to an Arab village or wait three weeks. Testing for the disease, I am told by another family member, has also become a problem. Is there is nobody to carry out this vital procedure? In normal times, as a responsible blogger, I would go out and check for myself. But in these dark days of Covid, I am confined to my house and, when it is not raining, my small garden.

And why? Nobody is saying. The news outlets are keeping quiet, they are certainly not giving us news. They seem to have joined the government, willingly or not, in a total news blackout.

There are two possible problems – not enough vaccines or not enough vaccinators. In either case it is the government’s incompetence that is the root cause.

We are not alone. In the United Kingdom, despite safety regulators giving the vaccination the green light, the mass vaccination of young children is still on hold. Do we really want to follow in the UK’s footsteps?

It cannot be that difficult to find people with some experience of giving a simple injection. Some four percent of the population are diabetic and would be happy to give someone else an injection, for a change.

So, why the reticence to keep us fully informed. Two explanations come to mind. The first is not a pleasant one; the situation is so bad that we are looking at the end of the world as we know it. The virus is mutating to spread faster and kill everyone it infects. To avoid catastrophic panic, and the breakdown of society, the government is keeping quiet. Who knows what people would do if the truth were out.

The second explanation is more realistic; it is an excellent and unexpected opportunity for those in power, either openly or behind the scenes, to keep their populations under control. The government knows best; just do as you are told and don’t ask questions. Even a three-year-old can understand that.
