  1. It would be good if somebody says that the only issue with this virus, with any virus actually, is people moving all around. People moving all around without any real reason but to build this fake idea of One World – One People. Back then when Opera was a real thing, we had some european firms making electronics and phones. Right now people do believe everything must come from China and they don’t mind if the only reason for it is that in China there are slaves working on their gadgets. They don’t mind of the price that comes with any choice. Because they don’t even imagine there are other options and choices to make. There is only One World, no past, no future, only One Present.
