As collapse of ecosystems and civilization accelerates and, arguably, approaches its final act, the dissolution of reality as we know it is occurring across all(?) material and nonmaterial dimensions. The signs and “symptoms” of the comparatively snail-paced deterioration are expressing psychologically in the forms of overwhelming stress ~~> anxiety, anger, depression, suicide, violence to others, etc etc.
CV-19 and the host of other diseases, mostly more serious than the current exaggerated “pandemic”, have been on the rise since the onset of industrial civilization and modern day allopathic and high tech medicine.
And at least since the 1950s, the degradation of human habitat by humans has been slowly impacting the human species at the reproductive level. The growth rate (birth<~~> death) of populations in developed countries has been dropping much as we have observed occurred in the final days of some indigenous North American tribes.
The point ~~> everything is being impacted by and contributing to the imminent collapse of the world civilization, most profoundly in equatorial third-world regions where drought and USA political interventions, sanctions, and outright military violence continue to generate mass migrations of people who have lost hope of surviving in their homelands.
If corporate mainstream media devoted as much fear-mongering to the poisonous practices of industrial agriculture, the health impacts of industrial processes like fracking, BigPharma advertising, obesity, governmental corruption, the disparity between haves and have-nots, heart disease, cancer, and death by medical mistreatment etc etc… as it does to the much less dangerous CV-19 “cases”, then the full extent of progressing dissolution would be much more apparent.
Collapse was not caused by “climate change” but/and climate change was initiated at the onset of the Industrial Revolution. Every known civilization that has preceded this particular iteration has unfolded precisely the same, like a fruit tree that flowers, ripens and then rots.
Welcome to the compost pile.
