The Plague

The zombie apocalypse is upon us. It is time to load up on ammunition, potable water and the dehydrated food they say will last generations. Of course, it also means cutting yourself off from the rest of humanity, as you can’t be sure when they will catch the virus and turn into a zombie. You might have to use the ax on the guy next door, who just moved in, so there’s no point in getting know him. It also ensures that whatever is turning people into zombies will not get to you.

We may not be on the verge of a zombie apocalypse, but there is a cornavirus outbreak in China that has spread to several other countries. The Chinese are taking it very seriously, warning people to limit travel and avoid the outbreak zone. They are saying the virus has mutated, but what exactly that means is unclear. There has been at least one case in the United States. The infected person had recently traveled to the outbreak region of China and developed the symptoms.

Now, it is highly unlikely that this will turn into a pandemic that wipes out a large swath of humanity, like the Black Death. It’s not impossible, but the odds are low because of modern technology. One reason the plague spread so easily is the poor sanitation in urban areas. People were exposed to all sorts of unhealthy things. They also lacked the medical care we take for granted. Mortality rates for plague today are about 10%, while they were as high as 60% in the Middle Ages.

Even as recent as a century ago, doctors were still blaming miasmas, bad odors, for various diseases. One reason the Spanish Flu spread so far is the general understanding of germ theory was in its infancy. Rather than isolating infected people and quarantining infected areas, people traveled as normal, spreading the virus all over the world in a short period. The Great War had millions of people moving from their homelands to foreign areas and the virus went with them.

That is the one connection between the last great pandemic and this new coronavirus outbreak in China. Every day millions of people leave their home area and travel to some new area for business, crime, tourism and so on. Humanity is probably more mobile today than at any time in history. Maybe there was more net mobility in the great industrial wars of the last century, but it is close call. The possibility of something really bad being spread by people is therefore at a peak.

Modernity may be the reason we are much more vulnerable to a civilization-wrecking pandemic than at any time in the past. A century ago, most humans lived in rural areas and farming was the number one employer in most of the world. Even industrialized nations still had close to half the workforce engaged in agriculture. Most men still had the wherewithal to maintain themselves in a pinch. The cities would be crippled by a plague, but the rural areas could carry on,

Today, 90% of western populations are dependent on the system to provide the basics of life, like food, water and heat. If enough people die from plague or even get really sick, the supply chain will break down. Given how near run all modern business is these days, the margin for failure is pretty low. A few weeks of failed logistics in the food business would leave whole communities starving. One water main break could cut off water to an entire city, if the work force has fallen ill.

Modern society could be like Jenga, the kid’s game where players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower of blocks. When everything is running as designed, removing one item does not cause collapse. If a few items stop working, then maybe it just takes one wrong failure for the whole thing to come down. For example, a pandemic plus a series of bad weather events leads to widespread food shortages, which in turn lead to civil unrest in major cities.

There’s also another angle to the risk analysis of modern society. Much of the infrastructure in America has been neglected for generations. Drive around an East Coast city and the roads are like the surface of the moon. Under those roads lie generations-old sewer, gas and water pipes that have been neglected. It takes a lot of manpower to keep them running. The same applies to lots of other basic infrastructure around the country. Manpower is needed to keep it functioning.

One reason for this is simple corruption. The ruling class no longer feels a duty to the societies over which they rule. They are extractive in nature, seeking only to skim and pilfer what they can from the people they rule. Another reason though is the collapse of social capital from mass migration and financialization. Most of the public stuff we rely upon is maintained by local communities. The obliteration of those over the last few generations is showing up in the infrastructure.

In a serious crisis, like a deadly pandemic, survival will depend upon communities voluntarily working together to provide the basics and care for the weak. For much of America, this is now impossible. In Europe, where 80-90% of people live in urban areas now dominated by foreigners, it would also be impossible. The point being, the cost of responding to a serious pandemic like the Spanish Flu is now much higher. In fact, we may not be able to react to such a threat.

Now, it is possible that like scarcity, humanity has overcome the threat of pandemic, through medicine and technology. The SARS outbreak killed 800 people, but in a world of billions of people, that is a trivial event. It’s three airliners crashing in a year. Just as we no longer prepare for famines in the West, we may no longer need to plan for another round of the Black Death or similar. Of course, people had similar thoughts before the outbreak of the Spanish Flu a century ago.

Are you serious? Of course they can! In the lib mind every single fatality is the result of the failure of the healthcare system because liberalism is the religion of government (mystery cult of power), thus it is omnipotent and if it was also omnibenevolent all would be perfect. Thus every person not cured is the fault of government not being omnibenevolent. Go and figure from that on your own.

We have been incredibly lucky in this regard.

I don’t believe for one minute that the authorities could really handle a widespread pandemic.

I’ve long thought that this is how our elites will get us killed, not wars, or death camps, but through shear incompetence in dealing with a disease. Witness Obama and his cheering squad not wanting to block people from Ebola countries because of racism. We even got some of that this time where it seemed like the medical authorities didn’t want the average American to come down hard on thoughtless Asians.

The AIDS fiasco was the first sign that we no longer were willing to handle diseases in a serious manner. The Ebola fiasco was further proof. No sensible and serious government would let people exposed to Ebola simply return home. There would be a quarantine. They would also have a separate facility set up for anyone infected. They wouldn’t place them under house confinement in an urban area on the honor system. Even medieval people had better sense.

First cause was Western society allowing homosexuals—especially men—to run amuck. AIDS is just one of the many diseases that one encounters when your casual sexual partners number in the *hundreds*. Prior to AIDS hepatitis was endemic, for example. Still is. Of course in our politically correct bizarro world, the solution is to vaccinate 6 month olds for sexually transmitted diseases like Hep C, and HPV—whether you want it for your children or not. But the gay population should have no restrictions on their proclivities and the resultant threat of infection the rest of the (normal) population. I still remember the… Read more »

You might be on to something. Another thing we often forget when imagining out doomsday plague scenarios is that while human travel is greater in both sheer numbers and global scope than ever before… so is communication and the ability to mobilize containment and treatment apparatuses.

I agree with you; technology isn’t just for containing independent thinking, it works just as well at containing people – diseased, of course. However, perhaps the cloud people constantly hype these failed pandemics in the hope one really will reach Stand-like proportions. Whether you believe in the georgia guidestones or just that cloud people want us proles to beg for more governance and protection, a good old fashioned plague shepherded into our borders does ths trick.

Having been part of the pacification forces when L.A. decided it would allow itself to burn in ’93 was an eye-opener. That was a tiny spark, capitalized on by a small segment of the population, and confined to relatively controlled areas. And yet America’s second largest city was paralyzed for roughly three weeks.

I’ve never looked at American civilization the same since. A decayed society, ethnic factionalism, deteriorated morality, unrestrained fifth columnists, and leadership-stymied resistance to chaos do not make for a resilient society.

Cooperation and diligence keeps it going and builds it out, as necessary. A breakdown, whatever the source, can cascade into disaster, if not contained.

The entire Asian continent is a giant petri dish. This has to do with 1) huge population plus density 2) poor sanitation, and 3) improper farming practices. We need only look to our pal, influenza, for an illustration of all of the above.

In the case of influenza, we have farmers using night soil, snails, and ducks. A close relationship to pigs is very helpful a well. When I was at the University, mention of this relationship was frowned upon as some sort of racism. Leftism will be the death of us all.

One of Obama’s policies that sucks the worst(for small, red towns) was the proliferation of section 8 housing and the people who get rent subsidies

Can’t wait until it reaches San Francisco and LA. We’ll see if the squalid conditions in parts of these places helps facilitate Uncle Pandemic’s run on an American city. But really, China is at a much greater risk of it happening in the first place and has a higher tolerance of the consequences. After all, China is pretty overpopulated. They wouldn’t even miss 50 million people, the worldwide death count of the Spanish Flu. They can make the muzzies go in and clean it up.

How hard a disease hits a country might depend on just whom it affects in the population. China could afford to loose 50M peasants—famers on a 1 acre plot of land scraping out a survival living. But of its younger workers in the urban areas? One of the mysteries of the 1918 Flu pandemic was that it was unlike any other recorded plague. Most large scale epidemics take out the old, weak, and very young. That is to say, the folks with compromised or under-developed immune systems.

I read that some medical professionals are beginning to believe that not introducing common possible irritants to toddlers may be exacerbating fatal food allergies in our population. Peanuts, certain oils, fish and strawberries being the most commonly dangerous. The theory is that while a toddler might actually be allergic, his/her developing immune system can actually overcome the allergic reaction and become able to process the source of the irritant. Avoidance actually allows that developmental window to close and the young person is left with a deadly allergy to the source. Anecdotally, I don’t ever recall encountering or even hearing about… Read more »

Ursula – you are so right about only the strong surviving – both physically and psychologically. I’m pretty black-pilled right now, so generally sticking to my genealogy, but it’s amazing to translate all these mid-1800s Italian birth records and then translate death records and mark 90% of those babies dead. Parents had 4-7 kids in a row die before age 5. I honestly don’t know how they withstood the grief. Those that managed to survive (and immigrate) generally lived into a ripe old age and had 5-15 kids each, almost all of whom survived to reproduce themselves.

Not all the patients some were hospitals that had beds to handle such cases(note there are only 4 hospitals that can and only 1-2 patients per hospital – due to the intensive and costly nature)

We are not anywhere near ready to handle a shit bringer of a pandemic. And in some cases the staff has only gotten cursory training in handling such patients.

Your only safe bet is to self quarantine. The non-sense of what Z says of local communities coming to together to help one another will only spread a infectious disease.

Another few factors should be mentioned. First, in previous epidemics, local authorities and the Public Health Service were able to enforce quarantines. The Public Health Service is the fifth “uniformed service,” and quarantine enforcement is a large part of the reason for that. Today, judges would likely be second-guessing health authorities designation and enforcement of quarantines. Any quarantine that even appeared to adversely affect a politically-connected minority would likely be struck down, adverse public health consequences to the contrary notwithstanding. . Another factor would be the distribution of vaccines and treatments, if and when they became available. While medical personnel… Read more »

More than 10,000 homes in Chicago receive their water from lead pipes. There’s no money available to replace the pipes or the home plumbing contaminated over generations. So Chicago put out a rigged contract and now pumps an organophosphate into the water supply which can create a slime layer that reduces lead concentration. This industrial chemical is believed safe but in truth the authorities won’t actually know for another few human generations.

Gay-B-Rhesus. What could go wrong?

I have a question; am I really dead and even eternal punishment is a disappointing joke? > seriously? I didn’t make it back from Iraq after all?

I’m with you – the coronavirus has the potential to be a major problem in some countries, but…not most of the industrial world (naturally, this does NOT include California).
