As a fan of juicy, world dominating, conspiracies, *drool,* what I really hate about these theories is the inevitable fate of the hapless victims.
Conspiracies paint a picture where people are clueless, powerless, and directionless puppets controlled by unseen forces, like the illuminati, the Chinese, or even aliens.
The "larger than life" threats range from mind altering chemicals slipped into the drinking water, infectious diseases intentionally flighted, or the "mother ship" looming behind the moon. All of which have the same effect on mankind: panicked scurrying around like rats in a lab, waiting to die.
If the reality is that we are merely the victims of a worldwide con for "pharma" to make more profit, or worse yet - we're rats in a large scale lab as some science project, then I dibs to be "Pinky" from the famous lab rats that attempt to take over the world each night.
So, what actions are available to the lab rats in this time of hysteria? Do nothing? Do we bury our heads in the sand? Pffft, this is simply not an acceptable option.
Should we blame the goverment? GREAT! Let's give our power away. Even thought they have a massive role to play in minimising and managing the current disaster, never in the history of goverment has the goverment ever spearheaded a solution.
Like Pinky and Brain, we, the lab rats, need to take ownership, not by attempting to take over the world, but taking back control of our own lab cages. We do this by first stilling the storm inside our own selves.
Start by educating yourself about the Corona virus, not through "Big News Hype," but through informed sources. Angela James offers balanced Choices for family and Business alike. Look her up and empower yourself.
From an informed position, make wise decisions that are good for you, your family, your business, and ... the country. We must keep in mind, we are in this together, and we need to act like responsible citizens. We need to stop promoting fear driven comments and concepts. Let's be the kind of people that offer support and encouragement, focused on finding solutions.
Panic is a sign you have given away your power, which results in the loss of hope as we accept the inevitability of our fate. Yet, it's Pinky and the Brain's unyielding hope that drives them to escape the cage of fate each night, and to forge their own destiny.
So Mr. & Mrs Conspiracist, you criticise those that believe in God for a solution? You bluntly mock those with hope for a positive outcome? Their hope strengthens their connection with God and humanity. Their hope urges the to be an active part of the solution. Isn't that what we should do during a global disaster?
I urge you, take your head out of the sand, get informed, and step up as a responsible citizen by playing your role in the solution. The part of "the Brain" is vacant, and the World is waiting for you to audition.
