If Mankind Falls, The Corona Virus Will Not Be The Cause

Talking about the mad mass hysteria surrounding the corona virus, a friend ventured the opinion that Mankind will probably ultimately fall somewhere down the road, but the cause will not be a virus!

2020: The Year That Mass Hysteria Fear of Corona Virus Covid-19 Threatens to Stop the World

At the peak of the Great Depression 87 years ago, President Franklin D. Roosevelt stated words in his first inaugural address that have become famous for their wisdom:

"[T]he only thing we have to fear is...fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance".

Roosevelt's wisdom is needed strongly today to counter the unparalleled mass hysteria of fear that currently grips the world because of the Covid-19 corona virus.

Measures are being taken worldwide by various authorities in all facets of human life that are inflicting far more damage on the world and its humans than the damage the corona virus itself has thus far caused.
