    Re: The US fragile democracy Exposed

    To be anti globalisation is rational. Wrong, in my opinion, but rational.

    But to think that Trump was asking for a fair vote count is delusional. Trump wanted the exact opposite of that.

    It's the middle of the Overton window but, yeah, your window is substantially to the right of ours.

    It doesn't bear thinking about, does it? Thankfully, illnesses that transmit without symptom are really rare. Mainly because symptoms are usually the vehicle for transmission.

    No, but we did a pretty good job with Sars, Mers, Ebola, Swine Flu, Bird Flu... Any of these would have wiped out massive numbers a couple of centuries ago.

    The good news is that viruses this lethal tend to occur roughly once a century. They're very rare.
