Not enough blame has gone to hospitals and its administration in the past 2 years. It's insane to me how they are getting off scot-free from literally any blame.

Hospitals run out of PPE - that's the filthy casuals buying up PPE. Why were they not prepared? What if there was a dirty bomb or a much more immediate emergency?

Hospitals are overfilling - this is NOTHING new. This has been happening during flu seasons for the past two decades and still the lessons weren't learned. So no shit, when an actual pandemic happens, hospitals still don't know how to react. So once again, a specific subset of people are blamed for this.

Don't believe me on the two decades part? There are articles going back as far as 2004, but I'll zero in on one from 2008: https://abcnews.go.com/Health/ColdandFluNews/story?id=2845388&page=1

>Feb. 5, 2007 — -- At the recent gathering of many of the world's top influenza experts in Washington D.C., projections outlining how hospitals would deal with a pandemic event were easy to find.

>Optimists, however, were in shorter supply.

>"We need double the floor space, double the physical space," said one presenter at a poster session of the Seasonal and Pandemic Influenza conference. "It's just not gonna happen."

>Another expert nearby presented her poster on possible triage strategies.

>"We'll need a more effective triage system to determine who gets the care and who's too far along," she said.

>Computerized training simulators. Strategies to discharge patients quickly and use hallways for bed space. All are approaches are designed to deal with what those in attendance at the meeting called a "surge" -- the increase in people needing hospitalization in the wake of a flu pandemic.

>But if an influenza pandemic were to begin tomorrow, the country's hospital beds would soon be filled to capacity.

>It is a projection that would surprise few public health experts. But data presented at the meeting paints a sobering picture of how profound and overwhelming the surge could be.

>Dr. Eric Toner, senior associate at the Center for Biosecurity at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, conducted a study last year to determine the capacity of the nation's hospitals to accommodate a pandemic surge.

>"In a moderate scenario, an additional 19 percent of non-ICU beds, 46 percent of ICU beds and 20 percent of ventilators would be in use by flu patients," Toner said. "This is pretty much all of the surge capacity we have in most hospitals, so if we're lucky and it's a mild pandemic, we will be stretched to our limit."

>But these limits would quickly snap in the face of a major pandemic.

>"If we have something like the 1918 pandemic, we're in big trouble," he said.

>Dr. Michael Tapper is an epidemiologist and director of the division of infectious diseases at New York City's Lenox Hill Hospital, which has 650 to 700 beds. Tapper says that the capacity of his hospital would be quickly outstripped in the event of a pandemic infection.

>But the bigger problem, he says, is that the same thing would be happening all around the city. And densely populated areas like New York could bear the brunt of the patient surge problem.

>"New York City has done a survey and surge capacity, and in the city, our surge capacity is very low because most of our beds are fully occupied most of the time," Tapper said.

>Bartlett said this could be a difficult notion for the public at large to swallow. But he added that absent a major preparation effort, such a situation may present itselfif a major pandemic strikes.

>"Nobody can deal with the surge thing," he said. "It's beyond reach, I think."

This isn't new. There's a serious problem with the healthcare system that has been known for a while and has never been addressed and yet here we are - all pointing the fingers at each other.

All this is due to the societal complexity due to industrializatiom.
We humans have overestimated our virtues/abilities. Only thing left to do is voluntary neutering and assisted suicide.
Hospitals are the breeding grounds of germs and chemicals.

The cognitive dissonance is strong with this one.

Self neutering is completely unnecessary now. If enough non-prepared, immuno deficient, conspiracy theorist, dumb dumbs want to take one for the evolutionary human team I say let them. It time to let these people go. I say let the hospitals operate at 200+% capacity. Don't mandate masks, don't mandate vaccines make it all voluntary...then let's see who survives. Don't doom the whole population with self neutering there are more then enough people jumping out of the gene pool already. We need to adapt now and and breed common sense and mental health back into what's left of humanity after all of this is over.

It's not happening fast enough. Also, people especially in the West have been spoiled by the concept of "muh rights".
Yet, in countries that talk the most about democracy, they have the most liability laws, people are being smothered and emasculated to the point of infantilisation. No wonder why nostalgia and generation gaps are becoming more common.

Well I mean there's only one county in the West that isn't a 3rd world communist shithole (remember "democracy" is a codeword for radical communist revolution). So you can't really blame the people in 3rd world communist shithole countries for being obsessed by utterly foreign concepts like natural rights.
