America, Dr. Fauci, and the Definition of Insanity — COVID-19 on the Rise

Well, it shouldn’t be a surprise, right?  For the entire summer, we were warned by health experts and the mainstream media that a second wave of COVID-19 was just around the corner and going to have our entire nation in its grips in no time at all.  That appears to be happening now as daily cases are on the rise like never before in the pandemic.

For months and months, Fauci has preached the “big three.” Well, when are we going to see results?

The response of the scientists like Dr. Fauci who have decades of experience on these sorts of things:  let’s keep doing the same.

Now that’s not how they describe it.  The undertone in the media and in every interview that people like Dr. Fauci give is that the American people are to blame because they are just too doggone stubborn to do the three things they have been begged for months now to do.  You know them, you hear them eighty-five times each day.  Wash your hands.  Wear your mask.  Social distance.  Well, today Common Sense Conspiracy wants to ask a a question of the scientists.  Have they ever actually learned about the scientific method?  Has Dr. Fauci ever been familiar with the definition of insanity?

It’s easy to put the blame on lazy, selfish Americans, but the truth is that the overwhelming majority of the nation is doing these things.  They are following the mantras, washing their hands until their skin is peeling off, casting suspicious stares at strangers and friends alike anywhere near their six-foot bubble, and wearing cloth coverings on their face.  While President-elect Joe Biden talks about nationwide mask mandates, the reality is that most states already have this.  The solutions they are proposing to stop the spread of coronavirus simply haven’t worked, at least not nearly enough.

The definition of insanity is simple.  It’s doing the same thing over and over again and expecting to get different results.  The advice Americans are being given to stop the spread of coronavirus is the definition of insanity.

We’re not saying that any American should stop doing any of the “Big Three.”  I don’t think anyone in America debates that washing your hands is a good way to avoid getting or spreading any virus, much less COVID-19.  I don’t think anyone in America debates that keeping a physical distance from others is a pretty good way to help your chances too.  Many do debate whether wearing a piece of fabric on your face helps, but hey, most people are doing it anyway.  We’re not saying that these things aren’t helping.  We’re saying that it’s not enough, and at some point we should hold our leaders and the so-called experts accountable for not having more to say.

While there is some debate whether Einstein actually said this, the message still resonates.

When I hear Dr. Fauci talking about these big three things we must do, I wonder what his real opinion is off-camera.  He must know by now that most everyone is doing this.  Look to the wider world also.  While America has taken more than its share of COVID-19 it would seem, the rest of the world is struggling too, and a lot of the countries that are struggling were less resistant to mask wearing than Americans were.  It’s easy to blame things on stubborn Americans and Donald Trump, but that explanation runs out of steam once you cross the oceans in either direction.

So, is Common Sense Conspiracy advocating stringent shutdowns to stop coronavirus?  We’re not advocating anything, but what we are saying is that continuing to indicate that these three measures are the key while the pandemic rages out of control in the background is not fair to anyone at this point.  Yes, wash your hands, for sure, but is this going to save the day?  It’s clear that it’s not.

In the scientific method, there comes a point where the hypothesis gets tested and then adjustments are made.  The data is in, and it is in overwhelmingly all over the world.  The big three helps, but it will never control the pandemic.  So, are experts basically throwing in the towel and saying there’s nothing we can do but let it rage while we wait on a workable vaccine?  Okay, then tell us that.  Stop acting like it’s everyone’s fault this is happening.  And stop acting like if just a few more pesky Americans would wash their hands a couple of times and wear a sliver of their underwear on their face, everything would be okay.

We’re not buying it.  What do you think?  Are Americans and people worldwide just not following Dr. Fauci’s rules and that’s our whole problem?  Or is the scientific community simply at a loss what more to do but wait on a vaccine?  As always, we want to hear you thoughts in the comments below.
