Murder in the First.
We now have passed the total number of US citizens killed in the Vietnam war. Remember the riots, demonstrations and outrage that occurred even before that number was reached? Where is the outrage today? We have a singular point of focus that is responsible for the escalation of these numbers. The USA, like most other countries is defined by a hierarchal structure, and we know who is sitting at the top of it. Where is the response? What is the problem with the masses? That answer is complex and multi-faceted. In a broad since, it is the public’s perception and really the reality that you have a criminal “type” at the top of the hierarchal US pyramid that is untouchable, a Teflon Don. No matter what he does, how many people he hurts or etc., on and on, the public is unable to produce the required business at hand. It is psychologically called, “The theory of learned helplessness”:
“The theory of learned helplessness was then extended to human behavior, providing a model for explaining depression, a state characterized by a lack of affect and feeling. Depressed people became that way because they learned to be helpless. Depressed people learned that whatever they did, is futile. During the course of their lives, depressed people apparently learned that they have no control.”
One notes that depression is involved in the descriptive definition. Depression can take on MANY forms and degrees of presentation, and an equal number of causes, wealth inequality for example, with its adjoined realities. The key to learned helplessness is futility, action that ends up bearing no change. You cheat your way into the White House with foreign help, corruption and crime is involved before, during and after the process, all is exposed within the system as to what happened, and yet, no accountability, no change. All is shown to be futile. The very laws and its commitment (The Constitution) that defined this country for 240 years is ignored.
Murder in the First degree as noted by loved Wikipedia, is, “Any intentional murder that is willful and premeditated with malice aforethought. Felony murder, a charge that may be filed against a defendant who is involved in a dangerous crime where a death results from the crime, is typically first-degree.”
Each state’s definition is different and there is variance in the language. Generally speaking though, if one is aware that death will or could result from action or inaction and you were/are the one in control of those actions or inactions with forethought, that is, knowing before it happens, and caused it to happen by combination of, or singularly those actions or inactions, you would most likely find yourself charged.
The actions that will save lives from Covid-19 as well as the inactions that will cause more death is not a mystery. Both the actions and inactions have been well defined at this point, and are pretty much in the knowledge base of the general public, though largely out of their control. Most of the required actions occur at the macro level (defining procedures and requiring them by law) and are beyond the control of the individual to effect, at least within the system.
It should be apparent to the “quick studies” in the masses, that all that has occurred from 2016 to present, are in line with CW (Concentrated Wealth) acquiring more wealth and power. Covid-19 was not wanted or caused directly by those club members (Hopefully), but the actions, inactions and money offerings are all “crafted” to benefit them, no matter how many human lives are lost. This objective is by no means limited to Covid-19’s world reality.
Most systems of control and change need a person at the top of the Hierarchal Structure, to act as an enabler, both as a matter of process and as a matter of message, to all that are under. Once again, we know who this is.
I could go on and on and make what is obvious even more obvious, get into the “weeds” more and connect the dots for you, but I don’t think that is required. There is really only one question that needs to be asked to the masses. It was a question that was asked in the far past by our ancestors, and to a certain degree in-between, and answered in the following form, the thrust of it being relevant today, but perhaps in a more “fine-tuned” and directed version:
“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
Clearly beyond the realm of selfies and the printed word.
