Indeed, far beyond the pandemic issue (as discernible from my including the phrase "with the pandemic as just another example").

It is now common to call things one disagrees with 'a hoax' and that, it seems, suffices for many to make things OK and the way they want them to be. If, for simplicity, we narrow it down to the COVID epidemic, those state that belittled the severity have paid and are paying a heavy price.

For that matter, there are sundry religious groups that will not accept medical intervention and put it all in "HIS HANDS" - with unnecessary fatal results. Unfortunately, even prayer can be (and very often is) subverted to this concept. And, of course, the "anti-vaxxer's" who haven't a clue to what life was like before the basic immunizations. The are, for now, often protected by the herd immunity conferred upon them by the rest of us . . . but that only goes so far as the Amish discovered when they had a Polio outbreak. Now, I believe, they do accept vaccines.
