I hope you’re doing well during this difficult time.
For the past couple of years, I’ve been focusing on balance – in these posts, in my book The Art of Balance: Staying Sane in an Insane World, in a forthcoming online course, and in my own life.
The greatest unbalancer most of us have experienced in our lifetimes is happening right now, so I thought I’d better directly address it.
I began with what I thought would be a lecture for my online course, which has since become the start of a new book, The Art of Balance in a Global Crisis. As I paid closer attention to the unconstrained spread of the virus in the United States and compared it to how other nations were faring elsewhere in the world, I tried to make sense of why, at this moment in history, so much was going wrong here – with the pandemic response, the economy, racial discord, and the environment – all at once.
I began to notice disturbing patterns, and I’ve just finished writing an essay about them.
Some of you may disagree with what I’ve uncovered. Others will find it disturbing. I hope, regardless, that you’ll consider what I’ve observed. And, I hope you will also stick around for future posts, when I’ll return to other aspects of maintaining life balance.
In the essay, I ask the question:What if the Trump administration's mishandling of the pandemic is not indifferent, incompetent, chaotic, or any of the other explanations offered by mainstream media? What if, instead, everything has been going according to plan? Click To Tweet
This question came to me on July 3rd, as I watched Donald Trump deliver his Mount Rushmore speech. For the next two weeks, I barely slept. Then I got to work looking to see whether the answer to this frightening question was yes, all the while hoping that it was not.
In the essay, I use the tools of my trade to build the case, brick by brick, that Trump & Company are deliberately encouraging the virus’ spread so that the people who are dying disproportionately from COVID-19 – Blacks, Latinxs, Indigenous people, and the elderly, sick, and imprisoned – will continue to die.
I call it pandemicide.
Using the same therapist tools, I go on to show how pandemicide fits into a larger agenda. I conclude with a call to action around what we need to do, now, to return our nation to sanity.
Please read the essay and, if you believe it is credible, spread the word, in whole or in part, in any way that might help to raise awareness.
