This is just the best I can do to reach out to people who have audiences. I am imploring you that if you do not think Covid19 is a big deal, you keep it to your self.
I just listened to a new podcast that was suggested to me long ago – Story Brand. (edited to clarify) They were going on about love and Jesus and God one second (which was unexpected for a business podcast), and then I was honest to god horrified to hear them advocating to ignore Covid19 and people’s health and safety the next minute.
They told their audience that Corona was a bit scary but /mostly massive lies/. They told their audience the 2% kill rate wasn’t a concern. **They ENCOURAGED their audience to buy their $1000 live-stream and then HAVE THEIR FRIENDS COME OVER to watch it together.**
Please, even if you disagree with me, even if you disagree with all of the statistics, and all of the news, and all of the people in Italy begging you to take this seriously – don’t give out anti-safety advice to your followers. Keep it to yourself. Ask yourself: is a Covid19 slam worth it if one day down the road a loyal follower says they listened to you, and they ended up with the virus? That they have a hospital bill they can’t pay? That they infected someone who died?
If you have trust, think carefully about what you say. That is all.
