You would think that news of the Bubonic Plague being prevalent would cause some alarm.
Most would think it was gone, with the wooden carts carrying stacks of dead bodies to be burned. It's not that bad yet. But it has never gone away.
The local cyber-rag Oregonlive, carried an article today about a young girl, who has been diagnosed with Bubonic Plague, garnered on a camping trip. A flea bite was the point of injection.
She is in intensive care and expected to survive.
In the article we learned ""Many people think of the plague as a disease of the past, but it's still very much present in our environment, particularly among wildlife," said Emilio DeBess, DVM, state public health veterinarian in the Public Health Division's Acute and Communicable Disease Prevention Section."
Camping in some areas is considered dangerous due to the number of host carriers that might be encountered.
Wouldn't you think that any discussion that followed would be about prevention and eradication?
The talk was about isolating it and weaponizing it to control undesirable portions of the world population. None of those "too big" populations were white.
Controlling humans with mass eradications and pogrom style applications.
There are people here among us on the planet who think that way.
I'd rather have a backyard full of infected squirrels than know a single one of them.
