Are there any lessons for next time?
« on: September 23, 2022, 11:01:04 AM »
Models show that over 20 million people died from COVID.
But are there any lessons for next time?
Is there anything that will be done differently?

Like if Ebola comes? Similar virus, totally different virus? A different world catastrophe?

Lesson #1. Be humble.
Lesson #2. Be honest.
Lesson #3. Don't be afraid to admit to mistakes.
Lesson #4. Don't play politics.
Lesson #5. Don't be afraid to debate alternative opinions (doesn't mean you have to accept every opinion).

Ebola comes, government says honestly millions will be dead by the end of the week, leads to total collapse of modern society as we know it.

Armageddon becomes a reality based on your suggestions.

Smart people will learn from every event no matter how small the consequences were. Not so smart people will not learn no matter how large the catastrophe was.

Would likely also depend on the interval between events, people can have short memories. Wasn't there a strategic national stockpile of PPE that over the years got whittled down and never replenished leading to shortages in March 2020?

BTW where are you seeing the 20M models?

WHO and other estimates I've seen have it at 6.5M.

He mentioned only the top 5, but didn't mention the obvious which is כתר עליון above those five - אמונה ובטחון.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

You get the 20 top senators, 10 Democrats and 10 Republicans, put them in the room together, and say, you guys not going home until there's a unified plan, which is then presented to the world
