The only people that I feel sorry for in that article are the author and his medical colleagues that have to look after these idiots who won't take basic precautions to protect themselves. Those people will very obviously reap what they sow.
I'd add the children to that list.

The question I have is has society always generated this level of stupidity or are we witnessing a new normal catalysed by social media. I have a mix of empathy for all involved mixed with frustration/anger at these crazies but there has to be something off for people to willingly walk and fight for their right to walk off a cliff.

This makes me really sad.

What a sad indictment of the times we are living in.

A lot of this comes back to the old "fake news" agenda that Trump led with. Those people believed that, and they continue to believe that the media is pedalling lies to fit whatever agenda they want, and unfortunately this is the result. There is an element of brainwashing in all of this.

I call internet bull crap

1. As if you'de hold the bozos hand and talk about the bosom of Jesus, when you're at the end of your tether, and you dont believe in god yourself. you'de keep your distance, and sing a made up song about worms and the blackest black and nothingness. At best, you whistle Hank Williams

2. some psycho breaks your nose, theres no way you call the dogs off.

Here's the post on reddit. Click on the authors name and you see all his comments. And you can see his been posting from frontline COVID for a long time. He explains why he didn't call the cops. Not just the notoriety the idiots would get, but fear he would be doxxed and his family would be targeted by these ivermictidiots

I have said previously in posts , that the sad truth is some 10 % of humans are either mentally deranged or just plain stupid.
By stupid I mean idiotic, not of low IQ.

I know this from personal exposure and statistics of mental illness etc in the community.
It means that a lot of idiocy exists in the human world...social media gives it a voice.

Not included in this 10 % are those with inexplicable beliefs , political dogma, aggression and lack of insight.
To be honest, if we include lack of insight, it does not leave many at all.

The post above regarding idiotic behaviour and death from covid does not surprise.
It is sad but just human reality.

I often post how beautiful this world would be without humans at all...and I mean it.
Just wait until I and my family have moved on though.

It must have been a very beautiful place before human evolution.

It's not necessarily related to intelligence either - personality traits and cultural context also might predispose people towards rejecting the overwhelming weight of evidence and buying into fringe theories about vaccination being a form of social control and Ivermectin being a miracle cure for covid.

That God bloke has a shitload to answer for. Messed up big time by creating humans.

How many lives could have been saved? How many lock downs could have been avoided?

It's not a race but it is an unmitigated disgrace.
