Are we watching Darwin's Natural Selection in real time?

I keep hearing Right-wing pundits, politicians, and Trump lemmings say that this virus is no big deal. It will pass quickly. I see churches filled with people on Easter Trump opines in a Fox interview How many people will actually listen to these idiots and end up gasping for breath in an overcrowed hospital ward?

These happy talkers have already used the economy as the excuse du jour to scare people back into the shops and restaurants. We have not seen the peak and we have no idea when the cases will begin dropping off. SendIng everyone back into group settings will likely only result in a second spike. This week may determine what the path of this virus takes in this country.

My feeling is that this is going to turn out to be a biology lesson our decendents will be reading about in schools for years to come like the 1918 Spanish Flu? I guess we're all about to find out. Having conversed with some of these Trump sycophants, I have to conclude that many, many of them will follow the Trump Adminstration right over that cliff. Like a mass suicide for dumb people.

3. Pardon me, but are you kidding me?

Unless we can exile them from society, they will take the rest of us down with them.

Your hope is doomed to failure for the same reason that Trump's suggestion that everyone who isn't vulnerable can go back to work is. The point of these extreme measures is that we all rise or fall together.

7. No.

Most of the people who die from this are older. The ones who were going to reproduce have already done so, for the most part. Their deaths from Coronavirus will have very little impact on the gene pool.
