I don’t know how to do this, though I once did. Maybe others can help? How to fix a starting time for a video?
Please fast-forward and pick up this this video at around 1:15, and then listen to Dr. Andy Kaufman talk about the positive features of our current malaise. He does a good job, and ends at around 1:23. The whole of the video is enlightening, but at over two hours, I know you’ve not the time or patience. It is a nice primer on terrain theory of disease, and requires extended focused attention.
Something I have thought from the beginning … how good it is for children to be home with their parents. Maybe this is an unintended benefit of the hoax, but warehoused schooling with enforced stationary boredom is so damaging for kids … no wonder they have invented diseases like ADHD (and associated drugs to cure them). Take a normal kid and stick her in a desk, she should be fidgety. This is a kid, full of energy and curiosity. That is torture.
Of course, with electronic devices, boredom is easily remedied, and that is too bad. I was able to play with a magnifying glass (torturing ants like a little psychopath), disassemble a treasured clock my mother liked (unable to put it back together), read books by Joseph Altsheler that captured my imagination, to play pickup baseball, and to go down to the Yellowstone River nearby and catch suckers and carp. Us kids would ride bikes to odd places and engage in the weird unmentionable things that young boys do. That is childhood, and I had a good one.
Parents of that time would tell us that when girls are playing and are quiet, all is well. When boys are playing and quiet, there’s trouble. Check it out immediately. Boys and girls, after all, are different. Don’t tell anyone. The experts these days don’t even know there is gender, and that it resides within the child from birth. They are morons.
