Nicely written OP. A refreshing change from the tripe on this board.

To broaden the view, here are the latest statistics from the CDC. I couldn't find anything newer than 2017, maybe it takes them a couple of years to compile the data.



There are 6 causes of death that far exceed the events you listed. And yet there isn't outrage over those 6. Once in a while there's a spot in the news or a documentary about the pollution and manmade factors involved in those deaths. Remember Erin Brokovich? She fought for those who died by California's utility company PG&E. Yes she fought for a fewer number of manmade deaths and illnesses, but isn't the point you all make that even ONE death is a tragedy?

Americans are more willing to accept manmade causes of cancer than they are willing to so much as THINK about other contributing factors to covid. Because over the years we have been shown that cancer isn't always a 'natural' unexplained phenomen. Just as we've come to ignore, because we're not informed of, yearly deaths from flu. We have been conditioned to accept causes of death in a particular manner.

Our emotions are controlled by the media. I'm not saying outrage over George Floyd is controlled by them, but they control WHEN we are outraged. There have been many deaths since the Civil Rights movement that should have caused outrage. Anyone remember James Byrd Jr.? No outrage then. I wonder why.

This could have been avoided. The unemployment rate is a direct result of the covid policy. It is NOT a result of covid itself.

Anyone remember Rodney King? Or the 1964 murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner. Or any one of the many black deaths that were a result of racism. Let's go further back to the Civil War and even further back to the enslavement of the blacks. Over 500,000 died in the Civil War. And here we are, for some unfathomable reason shocked at the death of George Floyd. WHY did America think racism had ended?

No we haven't forgotten HOW to think, we've forgotten history. We only relate to what is happening NOW, and easily forget what went before. And we are now totally reliant on media telling us WHAT to think.

I guess no one remembers the Central Park Five and the baboon's call for their death. What happened is he was elected by the electoral college and not the popular vote. This has only happened 4 times in our history, 1876, 1888, 2000, and 2016. The answer may lie there. But it is by no means the origin of the problem.
