What I want my kids to know about how I saw the world on April 4, 2020.

Every now and then the period of time in which we live seems to launch into a higher gear than we imagined possible just before the shift happened, bringing with it high stakes and a high octane vibe the likes of which usually only come along once in a lifetime, if that often. Every now and then history – God’s dramatic masterpiece written through His creations of time and space – shifts into a transitional chapter in which long-running plots and subplots come together as they were always intended to, however much we may miss, ignore, or try to wish away that reality. We seem to be living in one of those times right now.

As such, I thought it might be useful and, dare I say it, fun, to record some thoughts as to how my wife and I are viewing things here on April 4, 2020. More specifically, while things from the recent past are still fresh in mind and as the Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020 unfolds, I thought it might be cool to share some detail as to how we’ve processed the CCV Pandemic up to this point.

The first thing we need to fully appreciate while considering the many significant and challenging aspects of the big picture situation unfolding at this time, is that God is in control, and perfectly so. He has purposefully ordained every detail, every plot, and every subplot in this stretch of His story, and He is using all of these things perfectly to ultimately bring glory to Himself and benefits to His people (Romans 8:28-31). Generally speaking, this truth should make His people happy, at peace, and confident, even in the most tumultuous of times. While healthy weeping and mourning have their proper place, Christians should not only claim that God is in control, but they should model the sort of stable, calm, mature adult approach to reality that actually conveys that confidence in practice.

Another key foundational understanding has to do with the inevitable, unstoppable, supernaturally turbocharged reality of the Gospel-fueled Great Commission, by which God is using His people as His body filled with His Spirit and guided by His Word so that He might conquer every one of His enemies and advance His rule over every aspect of life in every corner of His earth, all by His grace, all for His glory, and (see if you can catch the theme here) all to the benefit of His people (see: Matthew 28:18-20 and Colossians 1:15-20). This means that King Jesus is, right here and now in the middle of and through this pandemic, perfectly advancing His Kingdom through His people.

Again, if we actually believe this (which is not the same thing as merely proclaiming it), we will find not only great peace within, but we will exude that peace in our daily lives. We will also find great inspiration to pursue the many amazing opportunities that are now springing up in numbers and areas of life that most of us had not imagined very likely, if possible at all, just a few months ago. (I touched on this idea last month in 10 Major Positives of the Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic.)

This is the broader context in which my kids will hopefully understand all things pandemic-related. While I may get into more detail in future postes regarding how I try to model love, peace, and confidence in the Lord to my wife and children, what I want to share here is some of the basic timeline/bullet-point info that will help my children (and any interested readers here) to better understand where my house is on the CCV issue and how we got here.

I offer none of this as anything even remotely resembling a textbook lesson or example of how everyone (or anyone) else ought to approach these things. Quite the contrary. I’m primarily wanting to share here for the sake of creating a record and sharing details that people, my kids in particular, might be wondering about as they look back on this point in history.

More particularly, I’m offering this as a means by which my children might learn about my understanding of things “in the moment” of April 4, 2020, for however much or little that may be worth. The general idea is to provide enough of a detailed record so that in the future I (or my kids) can look back and assess how close or far off the mark I may have been at this point in time. Hopefully, in hindsight from a far better place on down the road, this sort of record will help shed light on the weaknesses and errors as well as any strengths and insights that I may have had at this particular point in time. This sort of record might then serve as an aide to those looking back on this period of time, helping them to learn how to better think, analyze, critique, and plan for the next wave of challenges that God places before us.

Along those lines, I’d like to share three types of info:

  1. A timeline of key events and realizations that have shaped my approach to CCV and CCV-related things up to April 4 of 2020.
    .
  2. A summary of some other key points as I’ve observed them in the months since CCV emerged onto the world stage. Again, I’m just gonna share what I see (or think I see) and count on the reader to test those claims by whatever light they have to shed (ideally beginning with Scripture as the baseline standard for all things).
    .
  3. A few thoughts about the near-term future as I see it in light of trends and trajectories noted in points 1 and 2. (Which I will post in a separate “Part II” follow-up next week.)

With those three goals noted, let’s dive into the timeline:

  • I first started reading about CCV in the last half of January. By the last week of January, I’d stumbled upon the Peak Prosperity YouTube channel, through which Chris Martenson did an amazing job of compiling and sharing relevant information in a very calm, cool, and collected manner. (I will get into this more later.)
    .
  • By the end of January, I was convinced that CCV was a big deal. By “big deal” I do not (and never have) meant The Black Death 2.0 or anything like that. I believed and continue to believe that CCV is just serious enough to be a significant threat on its own, but a much more serious potential threat based on the manner in which it could impact other realms of life and culture (think: public panic potential, supply chain disruptions, economic upheaval and Big Government power grabs).
    .
    Even though I believed that there was a lot of negative that was likely to flow from CCV, I believed that there were also great opportunities for positive change through even something as terrible as this (then potential) pandemic.
    .
  • From late January onward, there were five specific CCV attributes that compelled me to take the (then potential) pandemic seriously:
    .

    • Asymptomatic Transmission – If I had to pick one, this is probably the single attribute that inspired me to categorize CCV as a serious threat. When you can transmit the disease while appearing to be completely healthy, that’s a huge problem – and it’s a problem that is greatly amplified when you have a population that is largely committed to ignoring this core attribute when deciding if/how to mitigate spread of the disease. Asymptomatic transmission is also the attribute that makes wearing face masks or face coverings both very effective in containing the spread of the bug (see: South Korea), and catastrophy-enabling for cultures that choose not to take masks/coverings seriously (see: USA).
      .
    • Transmission rates that are significantly higher than the average seasonal flu. From an April 4 perspective, there are all kinds of models, theories, and speculations as to precisely how contagious or easily transmitted CCV really is. Now that we have a few months’ worth of reality in the rear view mirror , CCV seems to have proven to indeed be significantly more aggressive than the average seasonal flu on the transmission front.
    • A real possibility of achieving exponential growth. Back in January, the high transmission rate being associated with CCV pointed to the profound threat of exponential growth as a very real possibility, especially if/when the bug isn’t aggressively dealt with early on.
      .
    • Severe complication (hospitalization) rates that are significantly higher than the average seasonal flu. Early (in January) reports on CCV presented a very high rate of serious complications and hospitalizations related to this bug.
      .
    • Fatality rates that are significantly higher than the average seasonal flu, particularly when hospital/medical systems are overrun by the bug’s quick spread, which leads into…
      .
    • A unique ability for CCV to overwhelm medical systems through its faster-than-flu transmission and greater-than-flu rates of serious complication and hospitalization.
  • By the end of January, my wife and I determined to finish preparations for the supply chain disruptions and economic issues that seemed at least possible as a result of something like CCV spreading in the coming months. Our general approach is to prepare for significant unexpected disruptions anyway, but this looming threat (reminder: using a word like “threat” in no way necessitates fear or fear-mongering on my part, however much some may wish to pretend otherwise) inspired us to add a few more essentials to our “weather the storm” stock while calmly encouraging others to do the same so that we (and they) could avoid the inherent dangers that come when large groups of sleepwalkers suddenly wake up and rush to the store to panic-buy whatever they can.
    .
    This approach allowed us to stock up in February with everything that we thought we might need over the course of an extended period of time without access to outside resources, long before awakened masses began to rush the likies of Costco and clear out supplies of things like toilet paper and hand sanetizer.
    .
    This approach was and continues to be a basic expression of the idea that responsible people should be well prepared so that they can, among other things:
    .
    1. Meet the needs of their family over an extended period of time in which outside resources are unavailable (for months, not weeks), and
    .
    2. Be well positioned to help others in time of need.
    .
    You can’t help other people get the resources that they need if you haven’t procured those resources, and you can’t effectively “save the world” (or even just a few friends in need) if you haven’t taken good care of the home front.
    .
    So the bottom line for us along these lines is that by the last week of February, we were basically set, allowing us to avoid Costco and other panicy settings as they developed over the course of March.
    .
  • On February 3, I posted my first CCV-related blog, entitled Coronavirus and the Viral Spread of Decentralization.
    .
  • On February 24, after being perplexed by various approaches to the subject of CCV and concerned that many of these takes were going to contribute to serious problems in the not-too-distant future if the documented growth potential for CCV proved to be anywhere close to true, I posted It’s Time to Brace for Coronavirus Impact.
    .
    It’s important to note that back in February (which seems like ages ago now, even though it’s just April 4), System-approved “experts” permeating corporate media and organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO) and Center for Disease Control (CDC) were minimizing or dismissing entirely the threat posed by CCV, with those who expressed a serious concern (again: not to be confused with fear or panic) over CCV openly mocked and derided as “conspiracy theorists”, “fear-mongers” or worse. ZeroHedge was even deplatformed by Twitter for daring to address aspects of CCV that are now widely recognized as, at the very least, having more than enough merit to warrant serious consideration by rational people not inclined to uncritically swallow and regurgitate the corporate/state party line. President Trump also led the MAGA movement in the same dismissive-of-CCV direction and the “it’s no big deal”/”it’s not even as bad as the flu” narrative took deep root in the public consciousness as a result of minimalization of CCV coming from all of these sources in different ways at the same time.
    .
  • On March 7, I posted Fear Mongering from Anti-Preppers Soars (All in the Name of Fighting Fear), in which I elaborated on one of the more disappointing trends that was on display, that being the way that basic Christian mature adult behavior was being spun by some as inherently fearful, fear-monger-ish, or some similarly bad thing. One of the rather thick ironies defining this part of the story was that a good many of the people ranting and raging online against those who dared to prepare and encouraged others to follow suit was that the ranters were doing their thing in a decidedly unhinged, emotion-driven manner that often epitomized both panic and fear-mongering.
    .
    You can see the post here:
    .


  • By mid-March many CCV-dismissive types were often uncritically citing Chinese Communist Party propaganda as though it were solid, reliable information. Chinese Communist Party propaganda was being shared and promoted all over the place, even by self-described anti-Communist Christians who would otherwise never do such a thing. This was evidence in my mind of the increasingly unhinged emotion- and narrative-driven approach that seemed to have captivated many (but certainly not all) in the CCV-dismissive/minimizing camp.
    .
  • On March 16, I posted Quarantined “Facts”: How some are using China-fed data to discourage U.S. preparedness. You can see the post here:
    .
    .
  • The next day (March 17), in light of predictable and inherently destructive government/bankster approaches to addressing (or capitalizing on) the CCV crisis, I posted Free “Money” For Everyone!!! (Or: How Coronavirus Is About To Kill The U.S. Dollar), where I tried to remind readers of the sickly, warped, and evil nature of our economic system while making another plea to prepare for the storm that was no longer out there on the horizon, but was now directly overhead and upon us. You can read the post here:
    .
    .
  • On March 19, in an effort to remind myself and others of the many positive things and great opportunities that accompanied the storm clouds gathering above us, I posted 10 Major Positives Of The Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic, which I cited earlier and you can read here:
    .
    .
  • As March rolled on, one of the problems that seemed clear was something I refer to as Narrative Slavery, which is a consequence of people latching on to a particular theme or narrative and then excessively filtering everything through that theme or narrative, even to the point of ignoring counter-narrative evidence and refusing to consistently apply standards to all relevant subject matter equally when doing so might lead away from or contradict the narrative of preference.
    .
    One common manifestation of Narrative Slavery in the CCV era – and one that has often been deployed by Woke/Cultural Marxist types for many years before CCV came along – is that of using a perverted or abused version of a targeted thing as an argument against the thing itself. Where Wokesters employ this approach often in attempts to tear down things like biblical patriarchy and masculinity by pointing to perversions and abuses of patriarchy and masculinity, many in the CCV-Dismissal camp use perverted/abused approaches to personal preparation, government intervention, or quarantine as arguments against taking seriously the personal responsibility to prepare and/or #FlattenTheCurve.
    .
    Another increasingly common manifestation of Narrative Slavery can be seen in the way advocates of a certain perspective seek to isolate one fact or issue from another rather than consider all aspects of CCV as part of one coherent whole. This is most apparent in the way many are using issues or topis related to CCV as a means by which to dismiss serious examination and acceptance of CCV as what it is in and of itself.
    .
    I tried to tackle this problem on March 20 in Keep Your Eye On The Bug: Don’t Let Anyone Distract You From Key Attributes Of Coronavirus , where I noted that:
    .
    “…The fact that Big Government control-freaks will try to use the Coronavirus threat to their ideological advantage in no way minimizes the actual threat posed by Coronavirus itself which, as is made plain by the five attributes noted above, is a serious threat indeed.
    .Now let’s run through ten examples of other similar gimmick pseudo-arguments routinely offered up as distractions by those attempting to dismiss or minimize the seriousness of Coronavirus:

    1. BUT THE MEDIA IS JUST TRYING TO JUICE RATINGS BY HYPING CORONAVIRUS

    Yes. This is surely true.

    And...1. Coronavirus is much more deadly than the flu, 2. inspires higher rates of serious complications than the flu, 3. is frequently transmitted asymptomatically, 4. spreads much more rapidly than the flu, and 5. is well equipped to overwhelm medical systems, which then significantly increases serious complication and death rates beyond their already-much-worse-than-the-flu levels.

    The fact that the media is doing what it typically does in order to boost its ratings and advance its agendas in no way makes the Coronavirus any less inherently dangerous than it is based on the five attributes of the bug that we know to be real.

    2. BUT THE DEMOCRATS ARE JUST TRYING TO USE CORONAVIRUS AS A WEAPON AGAINST TRUMP

    Yes, this is surely true as well.

    And1. Coronavirus is much more deadly than the flu, 2. inspires higher rates of serious complications than the flu, 3. is frequently transmitted asymptomatically, 4. spreads much more rapidly than the flu, and 5. is well equipped to overwhelm medical systems, which then significantly increases serious complication and death rates beyond their already-much-worse-than-the-flu levels.

    3. BUT BIG PHARMA WILL JUST USE THIS TO PUSH ITS VACCINES

    Yes, this is true too.

    And1. Coronavirus is much more deadly than the flu, 2. inspires higher rates of serious complications than the flu, 3. is frequently transmitted asymptomatically, 4. spreads much more rapidly than the flu, and 5. is well equipped to overwhelm medical systems, which then significantly increases serious complication and death rates beyond their already-much-worse-than-the-flu levels.

    4. BUT BIG GOVERNMENT WILL JUST USE THIS AS AN EXCUSE TO BUILD MORE AND BIGGER GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS

    Yep. No doubt about it.

    And1. Coronavirus is much more deadly than the flu, 2. inspires higher rates of serious complications than the flu, 3. is frequently transmitted asymptomatically, 4. spreads much more rapidly than the flu, and 5. is well equipped to overwhelm medical systems, which then significantly increases serious complication and death rates beyond their already-much-worse-than-the-flu levels.

    5. BUT CHINA IS JUST GOING TO USE THIS TO TRY TO GAIN AN ADVANTAGE OVER THE U.S.

    Duh! Of course they are.

    And1. Coronavirus is much more deadly than the flu, 2. inspires higher rates of serious complications than the flu, 3. is frequently transmitted asymptomatically, 4. spreads much more rapidly than the flu, and 5. is well equipped to overwhelm medical systems, which then significantly increases serious complication and death rates beyond their already-much-worse-than-the-flu levels.

    6. BUT TRYANT WANNABES IN GOVERNMENT WILL JUST USE THIS AS AN EXCUSE TO CRACK DOWN ON FREEDOM AND CONTROL US EVEN MORE

    Yep. They’re very likely to try that, I agree.

    And1. Coronavirus is much more deadly than the flu, 2. inspires higher rates of serious complications than the flu, 3. is frequently transmitted asymptomatically, 4. spreads much more rapidly than the flu, and 5. is well equipped to overwhelm medical systems, which then significantly increases serious complication and death rates beyond their already-much-worse-than-the-flu levels.

    7. BUT MANY BUSINESSES WILL BE DESTROYED AND LIVES WILL BE ECONOMICALLY SCARRED IF WE TAKE CORONAVIRUS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING SERIOUSLY

    Yes, this is tragically true.

    And1. Coronavirus is much more deadly than the flu, 2. inspires higher rates of serious complications than the flu, 3. is frequently transmitted asymptomatically, 4. spreads much more rapidly than the flu, and 5. is well equipped to overwhelm medical systems, which then significantly increases serious complication and death rates beyond their already-much-worse-than-the-flu levels.

    While most U.S. citizens have spent their lifetimes shielded from the reality of hard decisions like those associated with the social distancing and #FlattenTheCurve movements, the simple reality is that adults are often charged with making very difficult choices between unpleasant options. Believing that hard and painful economic decisions have to be made is not the same as “wanting to destroy the economy” or “not caring about people who will suffer”.

    8. BUT…THE RUSSIANS!!!

    Well, no, not the Russians, actually…

    And1. Coronavirus is much more deadly than the flu, 2. inspires higher rates of serious complications than the flu, 3. is frequently transmitted asymptomatically, 4. spreads much more rapidly than the flu, and 5. is well equipped to overwhelm medical systems, which then significantly increases serious complication and death rates beyond their already-much-worse-than-the-flu levels.

    9. BUT WARMONGERS DESPERATE FOR DISTRACTIONS FROM A COLLAPSING ECONOMY WILL JUST USE CORONAVIRUS AS COVER TO GO TO WAR

    Very likely.

    And1. Coronavirus is much more deadly than the flu, 2. inspires higher rates of serious complications than the flu, 3. is frequently transmitted asymptomatically, 4. spreads much more rapidly than the flu, and 5. is well equipped to overwhelm medical systems, which then significantly increases serious complication and death rates beyond their already-much-worse-than-the-flu levels.

    10. BUT CENTRAL BANKS WILL JUST USE CORONAVIRUS AS A REASON TO PUSH FOR A CASHLESS ECONOMY

    Of course they will.

    And1. Coronavirus is much more deadly than the flu, 2. inspires higher rates of serious complications than the flu, 3. is frequently transmitted asymptomatically, 4. spreads much more rapidly than the flu, and 5. is well equipped to overwhelm medical systems, which then significantly increases serious complication and death rates beyond their already-much-worse-than-the-flu levels.

    I hope that these ten examples have been helpful in promoting focus on the things that matter when it comes to rightly understanding and responsibly dealing with Coronavirus.

    The next time someone tries to distract with one of these gimmicks, kindly nod, say “yeah, I agree,” and then calmly ask them: And how exactly does that alter the basic realities of Coronavirus itself?”

    .
    .

With that timeline set, here are a handful of general themes that have struck me over the course of the last two months or so…

The Emergence of Great Alternative Information Sources

For all of the laughably bad information proliferated by the WHO, CDC, Chinese Communist Party, and Big Government/Big Media in general, some amazing alternative information sources have emerged in a big way (in no small part due to the relative incompetence of the aforementioned System-approved sources and “experts”). While I could (and may in the future) share a long list of resources I’ve been very happy and thankful to have connected with in recent months, there are two that stand out.

The first is Chris Martenson of Peak Prosperity.

While I’d been casually following Peak Prosperity for a while, it was Chris’ cool, collected, super-detailed and well researched presentation on CCV that hooked me in January. Rather than explain to you just how cool, how spot on, and how helpful Chris has been to me (and many others) in this era of bad info, suppressed info, and politically spun info, I think it’d be far better for me to share with you a video update on CCV that he posted January 24.

It’s less than 10 minutes long (9:47 to be precise). If at all possible, you really need to pause here and watch this. If you can’t do that now, please come back to it later. Either way, here’s the embedded video player:

The other information/education star that has become a top tier, near-daily source of data for Holly and me is Mike Maloney of GoldSilver.com. His amazing “Hidden Secrets of Money” series had, in its seventh episode, predicted exactly what we’re seeing now. Check it out:

If you haven’t watched that series, you need to. If you are home educating your children, you need to incorporate it into your studies on God’s creation of economics. It’s that good.

More recently, Mike has been chronicling the impact of CCV (on a near-daily basis, like Chris from Peak Prosperity). His coverage has been remarkably approachable and information drenched at the same time (which is no easy thing to accomplish), all while maintaining a light, happy spirit even though he’s often covering the most serious and heavy of things. He really does an amazing job.

The Widespread Abandonment of Common-Sense

While there have been many examples of the trampling and abandonment of even the most elementary levels of common-sense, nothing quite makes the point as clearly as the issue of face masks/coverings in the CCV era.

While we were initially told by System-certified “experts” and media tools that such covering weren’t helpful with things like CCV and that we are so stupid and incompetent that we shouldn’t even trust ourselves to be able to use a face mask without hurting ourselves, as of this week, the same “experts”, “leaders” and tools are now saying that we should use face coverings in the CCV era.

The saddest and most revealing part of this dark comedic episode has been the way that masses of System-programmed citizens/cattle have mindlessly absorbed, embraced, and regurgitated such idiotic policies as their anointed “experts” relay them on.

Chris Martenson has covered this subject very well, including his recent post chronicling the latest about-face taken by the “experts”:

The fact that we’ve been (and are still) resisting one of the key elements deployed by  South Korea and many others in successful mitigation of CCV is simultaneously bizarre and tragic.

The fact that most Americans are still personally committed to dismissing the necessity of face coverings in containing CCV seems to me a telltale sign that we’ve devolved into a suicidally selfish and prideful culture. Hopefully, by God’s grace, that will soon change. Hopefully we’ll soon repent and embrace reality where face coverings are concerned.

The Importance of Repenting of Having Ever Embraced a Wrong Idea

I remember hearing Paul Washer explaining the importance of repenting of having ever believed in a wrong idea or concept once we are made aware that the concept in question is, in fact, wrong. That idea struck me immediately as good and important to pursue.

That concept seems to intersect in a meaningful way with many of the items touched on here. If we don’t acknowledge and repent of our use of bad approaches to information and bad arguments in defense of bad positions out of devotion to (or idolatry of) our favorite pet narrative or cause, then we are not only doomed to remain captive and corrupted by those bad things, but we are modeling a very damaging form of stubbornness to our children and others watching. If we allow our emotions to trump reality or dictate what we acknowledge as reality, we are not helping anyone, ourselves included.

I need as much reminding on this as anyone. We are all prone to idolize our favored things. We are all prone to slant things in the direction that we want the to go, to see the world as we wish it was, and to dismiss all counter opinions as inherently flawed when they dare to confront or contradict our pet perspectives. This is as true for me as it is for anyone and while I believe that it is important for adults to push hard and tackle things seriously in ways that will inherently offend the delicate, emotion-driven sensibilities of many (particularly in this age of the Snowflake), I hope and pray that I always approach these things with a Spirit of both personal humility and a boldness rooted in Christ rather than myself. (For more on this idea, you might want to check out Never forget that apart from God’s grace you and I are complete morons.)

So there you have it. I apologize for the long, rambley and relatively unpolished nature of this post, but I wanted to get these things on the record in a way that will help my kids to understand how I was viewing the world during this particularly interesting period defined in large part, at least for the moment, by CCV.

I want my kids to know more later, after this chapter passes, since we don’t dwell on these points with them as we go about our daily business of (mostly) happy, (usually) productive life cleaning, building, adventuring, and playing together.

I hope that those of you who’ve managed to read through this might find some encouragement in some of the things noted here. I know that I’ve been enjoying this time of renewed home and family focus with my beautiful bride, and I hope that the Lord will guide each and every one of His people in a similarly wonderful direction.
