Virus # 26: Chapter 58 “the post pandemic world; the COVID crimes trials”

Chapter 58 “the post pandemic world; the COVID crimes trials”

I had previously mentioned all the steps that public health and governmental bodies took to limit the spread of the COVIDs. They had a chance to take decisive action but just about all of them blew their chance of retroactively correcting the errors that lead to medical and health networks being unprepared and underfunded hence overwhelmed by the COVIDs. And when one analyzed the evidence clever lawyers unearthed there were numerous high- level and professionally backed warnings a big one was coming and governments and health networks better get ready for it but they did not heed the warnings. The SARS epidemic was a playbook for what should have been done but the politico-medical elite in its usual iatrogenic fog head no evil and saw no evil.

Given all the military juntas and dictatorships that sprung up like mushrooms in the forest after a heavy rainfall there was no better way for them to solidify power and win popularity by launching COVID crimes trials. It was a “legitimate” way to shelf former regimes and place them in jail for crimes against the people. To spice matters up there were even a spate of executions.

Even where there had been no coups these COVID crime trials gave autocratic governments the opportunity to ferret out opposition even where it was clear they had no connection or responsibility for the health care system. Russia resurrected Stalinist type show trials that would have made the old Georgian monster proud. China used the opportunity to clean out dissidents in Taiwan and Hong Kong the two victims of its invasion.

In democratic countries where corporate commercial activities had been reduced to a crawl thousands of underemployed lawyers using the moniker of negligence and fiduciary duties set their sites on deep pocket governments, hospitals, individual physicians, insurance companies, Big Pharma, politicians and long term care providers. And they had many successes but try enforcing a judgement against paupers. There were only so many ambulances to chase.

But it sent out a warning shot over the bow of anyone or anything having the slightest thing to do with healthcare. When faced with the loss of your life or the cleaning out of your bank account you better be able to demonstrate you didn’t fuck around with the healthcare system!

After a few years of hunting for victims governments came to realize unless something was done no one would ever seek any involvement in healthcare and healthcare systems would be bereft of people to run them. Most corporations and individuals were granted legislated immunity from prosecution from COVID claims in democratic countries. In the autocratic countries life continued on as normal as all opposition has been dealt with and there was no one to blame but the autocratic governments themselves!

As for Virus # 26 litigation and crimes trials it had struck so quickly and thoroughly it was if there was no one left to blame nor anyone with resources to apportion the blame.
