What lessons have we learned from Covid-19 about learned and unlearned helplessness of being conquered?
Reading a blog titled: I Am Victim, and a novel titled The Lost City of Monkeys, answered a long-standing question I always had about how a few shiploads of Spanish soldiers conquered millions of Indians living in the Americas.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient Bible verse to our contemporary times and our world experience with COVID -19.
I know that, whatever God does, it shall be forever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God does it, that men should fear before him. (Ecclesiastes 3:14)
What’s My Point?
There are numerous lessons in life we have learned from Covid-19 related to fear and helplessness, some a result from wise or foolish decisions of modern globalism economics
For example, we learned that because N95 masks had limited production machinery and facilities located 8000 miles away, even though we knew how Covid19 was transmitted, millions were infected and some lost their lives.
The Spanish conquerors s did not win the Americas with weapons or cunning, they brought with them smallpox which result in millions of deaths, along with fear and helplessness by the American Indians.
In other words, King Solomon observed 3000 years ago that regardless of how wise we humans are or believe we are in control, we are “and (if) God does it, that men should fear before him :
In My Opinion
The Blog titled, I Am Victim, explains experiments on dogs to learn if humans control to some limited extent their own helplessness situation is life.
However, history records how both wicked and righteous can be conquered by both humans and disease.
We see pictures of people not wearing masks by their own choice even though there is a pandemic and even if they don’t care about beconing infected, their actions may result in someone who does care about himself or a loved one.
In my opinion, a faith believer has a less feelings of helplessness in life if he or she chooses to understand the Bible teachings of wisdom and love and the seasons in life are a gift and blessing.
And during their limited time they keep in mind this saying which I believe relates to the Bible proverb teachings and precepts of most religions…
The Lord helps those who help themselves.

If after reading I am victim, would you agree with the writers conclusion?
“Instead of looking for excuses to dominate each other, we can learn to protect each others God-given rights to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. And we can thank our Creator for the opportunity.”
