Typhus Outbreak: Third World Here We Come, Ready of Not! By Chris Knight
We have reported previously on San Francisco having a problem with people emptying their bowels on the streets, and unlike cats, not cleaning up their mess. Now there is an outbreak of typhus, something usually restricted to dark and dirty places, which is what the West is becoming:
“Descending into filth and destitution, dirty downtown Los Angeles has become a breeding ground for disease. The county Department of Public Health is now warning downtown residents that a new flea-borne bacterial disease is spreading from the city’s garbage heaps and rat population. This flea-borne typhus causes flu-like symptoms. Once infected, humans experience high fever, chills, headache, and rash. The infectious bacteria, Rickettsia typhi and Rickettsia felis, are transmitted by fleas. The flea may emit infectious bacteria from their feces. When a person scratches their skin, the bacterium can enter the epidermis and permeate the person’s bloodstream. The fleas are attracted to stray cats, opossums, and the city’s growing rat population. These animals do not get sick, but they bring the fleas closer to human exposure.”
It is one of the signs of urban decay, and ultimate collapse. Another characteristic of the approaching Dark Ages is slavery, and it has come to Australia as well, as we too return to the Dark Ages, with a few remaining techno frills, such as acid:
I will miss clean living and toilets, if I survive the fall.
