Interested in a comparison of discernment of Covidiots to Fools?
The Chicago Tribune New York Times article titled: Who is the biggest Covidiot of them all – you be the judge, reported various examples of people actions during the pandemic. For example, it began with this statement.
“Fighting a pandemic is hard enough without baffling demonstrations of ignorance also going viral, leaving us to wonder if humanity stands a chance.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to compare the medical use of spreading infections term RO to spreading RO wisdom or folly.
Scientists use R0 – the reproduction number – to describe the intensity of an infectious disease outbreak.
The words of a talebearer are like tasty morsels, and they go down into the innermost parts of the body. (Proverbs 18:8 KJV)
In the lips of him that has understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding. (Proverb 10:13 KJV)
What’s My Point?
A wiseman will discern the words of a person to judge if they are wise of foolish.
For example, the young man statement in the article. “If I get corona, I get corona. At the end of the day, I’m not gonna let it stop me from partying”
If you compare this statement to the young man’s wisdom and love RO. it is apparent that if he lives in a household with an elderly person, or is employed in a nursing home, that his statement is foolish. He obviously does not know or care that a person can spread the virus unknowing for eight days before he himself realizes he has COVID19.
If you read the article which explains how scientists discern RO exponential effects as shown in above feature image, he is a fool and even a menace to his community. Same comparison can apply to a covidiot or a fool.
Compare the same scenario to someone who expresses an opinion based on gossip, lies, or lack of experience, or education, or discernment: of wisdom and love of himself, his family, or his community.
For example, a news source or columnist, of a gossiper, activist, or someone who spreads lies or news gossip opinions gor personal attention or profit,
Depending on his audience, the same exponential of Ro (reproduction output) is multiplied.
My point is in our present contemporary times of news outlets, social media, varying education, philosophizes of life, parental training, religious or atheists’ philosophies, or politicians or political party.
In My Opinion
In other words, the exponential of either wisdom or folly and all the various factors, we are now living in a pandemic of folly based on the present spread of both coronavirus, anarchy, gossip, activists.
Whether the pandemic of wisdom or folly continues will continue to exponentiate can only be contained or spread will be determined based on the moto of this blog.
What the world needs now in addition to love is wisdom. We are the masters of our own disasters.

When will a vaccine be discovered to protect us from the gossip and lies being spread in the news, social media, activists and discern before participating in following the rhythm of the music of the pied pipers leading rats to drown themselves?
Or when will we wise up and end the repetition of each new generation repeating the same folly Ans previous generations as King Solomon observed 3000 years ago in this verse.?
What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9)
Or, when will we begin teaching wisdom in our school to teach wise discernment to contain the Ro of folly we read and hear in the news every day?
Would you agree we have two pandemics in the USA?
