Aahhh! The joy you feel when wishing death upon millions of people. Everyone responding is so sure that when you chlorinate the gene pool they will of course not be affected by that chlorine.
And they are also certain that they are better than average drivers.
As for accusing 74 million people of being fascists - you better hope you are wrong. But if you want to characterize your political opponents of being worthy of death - don't be surprised when the dying starts...
If you can't laugh at yourself - ask me and I will do it for you.
I am going to answer to the parts of your post that points to things I said and you comment about it.
Aahhh! The joy you feel when wishing death upon millions of people.
I am not whishing the death of anyone.
I only expect them to get what they search for.
I know real people that shouted "it is all a hoax" really loud, wore no mask, didn't reduced contacts, etc... then they got the virus (some of them even spreaded it into family and friends that not necessarily share their convictions). Then they had the damn luck to get to the hospital a bit before they got full. They were / are now occuping beds that were / are being denied to people that has been trying to comply and to be careful, reducing contacts and so on, but still got infected, two of them (elder people friends of my family) died.
Sorry but... in that case, they are the ones that deserve to get through the illnes solo at home and not puting more people in risk just because their idiocy.
If they survive... I will be happy about it and hope they learnt the lesson.
If they don't... I won't be happy, but I won't be sad either.

Correction again: If it affects me, I will accept it.
As the world is going, it wouldn't surprise me if we trigger something that drastically decimates our population. And seeing how the world is going... if it really happens, we will deserve it. I only hope the following generations have a chance to survive and they learn about our errors.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
All you say is true, as far as it goes. My fear is that intelligence has become for us what the peacock's display has become for it - contra-survival, but the females of the species expect it to be displayed...
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.

Darwin wrote another book, which the popular discussions on Darwinism pretty much always ignore. In this book, he talks about how there is another factor on which genes get passed on - sexual attraction. Male birds have big, bright feathers, which make them easier targets for predators, but females like them, so they get passed on.
In civilized society, sexual attraction is the number one driver of gene selection. If football player physiques are fashionable, then that's what the other sex wants. So, that's what increases in the gene pool.
And don't forget, evolution, in most cases, can take 10's of thousands of years to make significant changes in the ratios of genes. Of course horrific events, like the holocaust or a volcanic eruption, can speed up the process.

I am looking for recommendations on books or other resources that can walk me through taking an app I have built in Visual Studio 2019, using Azure DevOps for a code repo (which I do now), and deploying to Azure (I have an Azure account and two subscriptions).
Most of what I find is out of date, is geared around Visual Studio Code, or even worse, using the command line for Azure.
For me, this is not the 1980s, so I don't use command line ops unless there is no other way. VS Code, while great for Linux users, is little more than vi or Notepad++ compared to VS 2019. If that is your cup of tea, that is fine, and I am not being judgmental, just clarifying my preference for productivity in a Windows development environment.
If you know of any such books or other resources, particularly that go step-by-step through the overcomplicated machinations of deploying to Azure, I would appreciate your input. And no, I am not interested in AWS. I can create and deploy to the Azure DevOps repo now, and all the associated project management there. It is getting an app (web app, API app, SQL DB, etc.) deployed to Azure that I need to learn.
Don't know much about the books, but I know in DevOps this is referred to as "Pipelines". So, I would search for DevOps Pipelines: creating and managing, etc.
It's all part of continuous integration, using the repo and pipelines. instead of deploying to AWS (what we do), you would deploy to Azure instead, or wherever for that matter (could be on a server somewhere).
We use Git for our repo, and ALL code has to be approved via the Pull Request system, where it then gets merged to master branch, and kicks off a validation and dev build (pipelines).
you would set up pipeline(s) for DEV, QA, and PROD, etc. of your choosing, automatic deploy, or manual, up to you.
Ok, I didn't mean to be condescending. It's not that complex, but all of Azure is poorly documented and labrythine at times. I don't know of any books. But I'm happy to try to explain it.
In the Cloud Explorer you can right click on a function and download a publishing profile. If you right click on your code and choose publish, you can choose 'publish from a profile', select your downloaded file, and it will publish.
You may be interested in my signature.
The Succinctly books are free downloads and the DevOps one takes you through all DevOps has to offer.
You can probably skip right to the build and deployment pipelines chapters.
It's pretty detailed, so you should be able to follow along and deploy your app after reading it.
The Migrating Apps to the Cloud book is not free and has an emphasis on Azure, so probably not what you're looking for.
Although it does have chapters on DevOps and using Azure with Visual Studio.
