I’m not really accustomed to quick posts on current events, my writing being focused mostly on culture and politics and art and travel – civilizational writings meant to inspire wonder. However Vanity Fair just published the most extraordinary piece of investigative journalism for which they should win a Pulitzer but instead will most likely be ignored – if they are not forced to pull it down or retract – and I have felt the need to amplify. My version of a “share’ or “retweet” since I do not participate in social media, seeking out as I do the more thoughtful reader.
Short version – the greatest story of our lifetime. Not only did we just live through a hundred year pandemic (which is still burning, 10,000+ a day are still dying – 7.1 million and counting if you believe the ‘excess deaths’ data) – but we created this pandemic ourselves out of hubris and contempt for nature and her power, and then tried to cover it up. The biggest cover-up in the history of history.
It reads like a bad ‘B’ movie that I would watch on the SyFy channel at 2:00am after eating too much spicy food unable to sleep. Read here and share – for it took courage to write, and we should respect that effort. Vanity Fair: The Lab-Leak Theory.
