    During WW2 lots of people became vegetarians, not because of ethics, but because it was much more efficient use of the land than keeping animals for meat. They pretty much had to use an entire south American country for beef production during that war. If we are going to keep increasing our population then we will have to change our habits and start to rely on local efficient farming produce.

    Obviously we need to stop squeezing thousands of animals into small areas. If we want another huge pandemic asap all we need to do is keep doing what we're already doing. GO VEGAN it's the only way!

You are evidently underestimating people's capacity for free and critical thinking (and, based on what's been happening lately, you seem to be right to treat people as idiots). We have ALWAYS lived surrounded by coronaviruses, as well as strains of influenza, pneumonia, etc. Why should this NOW become a problem?

      You know, people like you are the issue. There have always been pandemics, and there always will be, and they will always be as awful as this one, because for all our great achievements and collective smarts, some of us, such as yourself, still battle with this simple notion: You're not god's chosen creation, you're not the ruler of this planet, you're part of it. Stop thinking you're outside of the food chain, or next time it will be worse.
