China: where was your patient zero?

 

China

State Department spokesman Lijian Zhao has asked the US authorities to disclose information about the origin of the corona virus.

Beijing even hinted that the U.S. military might have brought COVID-19 to China.

Zhao pointed to a video on Tuesday in which the director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, Robert Redfield, apparently reveals that several corona deaths have been reported in the United States that were wrongly classified as flu.

Redfield admitted that the doctors did not have a precise test for the new condition at the time. He did not go into detail about when these misdiagnosed cases first appeared. He only said that “some cases were diagnosed this way”.

The Chinese Department of State spokesman called on the U.S. agency to clarify information about these cases. In addition, he pointed to a military delegation from the United States who traveled to Wuhan for the Military World Games in October 2019.
A little later, the city confirmed the outbreak of the Corona epidemic.
The delegation was part of a group of American athletes.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the COVID-19 epidemic was first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan on December 31, 2019.
The origin of the disease has not yet been established.

And I mean…Yes, it can be the military games.
If that’s true, it’s biological warfare.
Consciously  and deliberately in order to damage China economically, that has always been “Nero”- Trump’s dream and now the polluter has it himself.

I myself exclude China, it just doesn’t make any sense.

Veganophobia or the meat paradox

Many meat eaters react irritably to a vegan lifestyle. There is a psychological reason for this: the meat paradox!

This text comes from the “taz.magazin on the weekend”.

To my great joy, the topic of veganism is more topical than ever! More and more people are open to a switch to plant-based nutrition; in Germany alone, almost half a million registered for the veganuary campaign in January, of which one or the other has certainly stayed on. Excellent!

With the popularity, however, the vegan rage of many meat eaters increases, which I also experience in the online comments on this column every now and then. The most hated are vegans who, for ethical reasons, do without animal products – which is strange considering that a large part of our society would like to see less cruelty in the world. Or?

Not at all, says the American psychology professor Hank Rothgerber. Because the reason for this veganophobia is the so-called “meat paradox”. The cognitive dissonance that meat eaters experience when they have to reconcile their diet and their love of animals. Because when we have two incompatible views in our heads and live one of them, it causes stress.

Now our brain knows a few tricks to protect us from this stress. I experienced that myself.

Previously, the first trick, I was a master at completely ignoring the reality of meat and milk production. Finally, there were pictures of grinning pigs on my sausage packaging and happy cows wandered over green mountain pastures on my milk cartons.

And, second trick: Sooo much meat, I said to myself, I don’t eat at all. A liver sausage bread for breakfast, spaghetti Bolognese for lunch and the salad with a little steak in the evening – almost half vegetarian.

Stupidly, this mental trickery no longer works if you are directly confronted with a vegan lifestyle. Then the “meat paradox” hits your head again.
You feel condemned, that stresses and makes you angry.
And who is to blame for the anger?
These stupid, better eaters, on which you dump your bad feelings. This is how you resolve the dilemma in your head instead of changing your behavior and reducing meat consumption. I felt the same way.

Today I know that when in doubt it is better to be for something rather than against it. For the animals. For the environment. For social justice. For delicious vegetable food. Then the spark jumps faster and enables a conversation with each other.

And who knows… maybe there will be a million in Germany in 2021 who will try vegan in January.

And I mean…The favorite excuse of all meat eaters: vitamin b12.

My first thought at the sight of twitching, bleeding pigs with electric tongs or “CO2 anesthetic”, scalding bath, cutting throats etc., is not the lack of vitamin B12 or 6 or 100, but the lack of responsibility and compassion of a society that already knows all of this but a shit cares.

We have ethics and morality. This is the basis of our basic law, from which unfortunately only human animals benefit.
But the nonspeciesist morality command us to avoid suffering, torture and murder of non-human animals, that means the morality command us to stop eating animals.
This morality is the future of a civilized society.
