We’ve all seen and heard how Covid-19 is the most dangerous to the older crowd. Seniors are advised to stay in. Nursing homes and assisted living centers are closed to non essential visitors. Old is the new threatened. Given that the scientists are expecting the rest of the world to follow the course of Italy and Spain, who’s to say the world’s population won’t shrink from the top down?
Because rank and priviledge won’t spare the vulnerable, should we lose key world leaders, what will ensue? Kim Jon Un is 37. Macron and Trudeau are in their 40’s. UK Boris and Kavanaugh are 55. Merkel and Xi Jin Ping squeak under at 65 and 66 respectively. Everyone else is as old as dirt. Should our world leaders become incapacitated, or worse, what kind of chaos will their absence create? Who will be in charge?
Do the math. Wash your hands. This stuff is real.
