Zero is Meaningless

If you’re ready for a laugh look at the latest missive from the zero vision mob – global Safety. As Covid-19 cases climb over 2 million globally and fatalities over 130,000 (https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ ) out comes Safety with language of harm minimization.

Yes, in the latest missive from the Zero Vision Psychosis Organization (ZVPO) we see clear contradictions spruiking strategies for harm minimization.

So let’s look at some very simple language contradictions:

  1. How can you talk about zero vision and then maintain the idea of ‘flattening the curve’?
  2. How can you maintain harm minimization language such as ‘social distancing’ but maintain the language absolute of zero?
  3. How can you use the language of ‘pandemic’ as it contradicts the very brand of the organization?

It’s pretty simple, if your strategies are about harm minimization then you don’t believe in zero!

Oh, I hear the echoes of the brainless binary buffoons: ‘How many fatalities do you want today?’ The answer of course is: ‘why do you ask stupid binary questions?’

There can be no vision in zero because zero denies fallibility and is anti-learning.

The language and archetype of Zero looks pretty dumb in the real world when we talk about pandemic and by any measure, talk of zero is a measure of pure stupidity.

  1. Great to see the ILO is on the cutting edge of a virus that was reported in December 2019 to the World Health Organisation . What a myopic farce.

    1. When one reduces one’s visual perception down to zero it is inevitable that one will not see anything, most of all the dehumanising outcome to a lack of vision. The anchoring of thinking to this binary language creates the greatest stupidity for an industry that is a laughing stock amongst the disciplines. Can you just see now the association of epidemiologists running a zero harm conference! Ha.

  2. Its a joke !!!!! If we believe in Zero Harm then we should not be allowing medical staff to risk their lives by treating patients. Although precautions are taken it is inevitable that some of them will be infected or even pass on the virus to others.

    1. One of the principle features of the zero vision ideology is the constant focus on ‘believing’ yet, I see no evidence anywhere that any of the zero vision ideologues have any nor demonstrate any belief in what they preach.

  3. Despite the “We are all socialists now” and Keynesian economics jargon from the commentariat I am more concerned with the sinister trajectory, which is evident via the language from the mad tangerine and behaviour of the fecund Boris Johnson and our evangelical sales and marketing manager.

    It all evolves around control and is clearing the decks for a more intense version of capitalism and a totalitarian dystopia, which will be expedited via artificial intelligence and transhumanism. The framework has already been established and one need only look at the money invested by Stephen Schwartzman at Blackstone and Larry Fink at Blackrock into artificial intelligence over the past decade.

    It will curtail any form of collectivism and freedom and most metropolitan cities will become like soulless Singapore with a skyline dominated by a casino and life will evolve around securing the deal.

    People will no longer be employed under a contract of employment and payed an annual salary, they will be engaged as indentured servants or peons to reimburse accrued debt.
