Currently we know how this epidemic is playing out. People are urged to quarantine and stay socially distant from each other. Government and unemployment checks have been approved but no money has arrived yet. At this point what do you think will happen? Sales of guns and weapons have gone up, which seems to implicate a realm of fear for most. How dangerous can this be? If you just “think” someone is coming to break into your house, how prone are you to shoot him or her without knowing for sure? Also, considering the massive amount of unemployment, how long do you think people can hold up on the debt they owe? For instance, rents and mortgages will suffer greatly if people are now unemployed. What if “everyone” stopped paying them? Of course, credit ratings would probably suffer significantly, but then again this would be the case for just about everyone. What if everyone stopped working while siting a dangerous health hazard? Banks would close, food stores would close, gas stations would close. While this seems like a rather extreme scenario it is still quite possible that this could play out. What if all of society just “quit?” What would you do? Right now we are not that far from this situation. Would the government try to subsidize everyone? Can they? What about those who are imprisoned? They are in danger of risking a major health catastrophe yet what can you do? The humane thing would be to let them out. However, unleashing a non working criminal element onto society can be dangerous for us all. It may be time to ponder the ‘what if’s.’ While you don’t want anything bad to happen it may be time to at least ‘prepare’ for it. Are you prepared? Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
