A climate change group that aligns itself with Extinction Rebellion, endorsed by Greta Thunberg, has launched an information warfare campaign, posting stickers claiming that coronavirus is a “cure” for the “disease” that is the human race.
“Earth is healing. The air and water is clearing,” tweeted Extinction Rebellion East Midlands.
“Corona is the cure. Humans are the disease!”
The current epidemic has the potential to be an event of historic significance by reawakening natural bonds of kinship-based loyalty among Westerners. Sir Kenneth Clark defined decades ago the challenge the Western world is facing today: “It is lack of confidence, more than anything else, which destroys a civilization.” But not all is lost, it seems.

Trends like this just show that you can’t believe everything you find on the internet. And as the old adage goes, if it seems too good to be true, it probably isn’t true.
