For instance, take the current health minister of Germany who claims that:
"By the end of this winter everyone in Germany will either be pecked, recovered, or dead."
That's chilling stuff, that.
Of course, these sorts of sentiments are not restricted to Germany, but appear to be catching on all over the West.
Well, if I may be so bold, I would like to add a fourth, unmentioned possibility to the health minister's list:
By the end of this winter many in the world will be pecked; some, recovered; some dead; but a few will be triumphant.
More significantly, spiritually triumphant.
