Somebody linked to this in the comments. I read it and was astonished. I have had almost all these ideas before but did not know how to express them in such a simple metaphor. Very relevant to what is happening right now. Defectors are running the whole show.
When you realize the sheeple are being culled by super-predators, what do you think the long-term outcome will be? Increased cooporation and solidarity amongst the in-group to counter the out-group. It is inevitable if that group does not run out of sacrificial offerings and cease to exist first. This is how the beany babies got that way.
The actions of a parasite are almost doing the host species a favor, gradually refining it until it is either extinct or acquires immunity to said parasite. Right now, obviously, there is a lot of refining going on. You may have guys on the sidelines like me marveling at how easy it is to kill them off but perhaps that very ease is proof they were not very well adapted to the problem of survival first. Any animal that cannot protect it's own offspring and fight invasion from competing groups is not really viable. It is practically putting them out of their misery. For all the caterwauling you may hear from my sort, there is a kind of good to be found in all of this. There are a lot of people gone completely soft in the head in the Western world. These kinds of people were never going to split the atom and in fact a surfeit of them was contributing to suppression of far healthier types. Once they had critical mass they were lowering standards in all walks of life.
Looked at from this perspective, it is a part of the preconditions of existence. Hard to absorb and a bitter pill but nonetheless.
