So wait let me get this straight

1. Virus stems from China and images of military and police arresting and quarantining people go around the world
2. Europe and US lose trillions (!) In a few days thanks to this scare
3. Economic playing field is now leveled again. China was trillions behind thanks to their tanking economy prior (!!) to the virus. Their industries were already deserted then. Now the China that was in the spotlight of bankruptcy suddenly is just one of many economies that are showing down due to a global panic

The virus killed fewer people than a peanut allergy kills in the US alone.

The virus killed fewer people than the common flu which kills MILLIONS every year.

Millions killed by the flu, no one bats an eye.

3,000 killed by a boring virus but hyped by Chinese and aided by own media and suddenly we lose trillions?

Oh and a part of these trillions goes to stock brokers who bet on chaos.

Capitalism and humans in 2020.

dude.. humans, ok?

1. Start panick
2. Profit from panick

Of course you don't have to sell, but cause enough (unfair, mind you) panick and humans will do anything, even against their own interests. You know what I meant. It is not legal what is happening. This is the white collar version of looting, just that we call it legal.

KABUL, Afghanistan — The Taliban have resumed attacks against Afghan forces soon after signing a deal to end their war with the U.S. military, raising concerns that the Americans are leaving their Afghan allies vulnerable to an insurgency unwilling to let go of violence as its main leverage.

The Taliban have carried out at least 76 attacks across 24 Afghan provinces since Saturday, when they finalized an agreement for a troop withdrawal by the United States, a spokesman for Afghanistan’s national security council said. And on Wednesday, the United States conducted its first airstrike against the insurgents after an 11-day lull.

Wallstreet is not colluding with the MSM. The MSM is doing this all on their own, because they are are a bunch of brainless, unscrupulous, emo mother fuckers.
