Dangerous virus threatening Global Society

04 February 2013, 09:02

There is a dangerous virus threatening human society and very little seems to be being done to combat it. In fact the prevalence is staggeringly high!

There are a number of different strains that have evolved in different parts of the world, some benign, others are more aggressive.  

It is believed that some strains could be thousands of years old.

It is highly contagious and if exposed early in life, symptoms can persist throughout life. Each strain seems to be geographically bound, however the more aggressive strains seem to be spreading out of control. 

Symptoms include impaired reasoning, delusion, aggression, and repression of sexuality and in extreme cases suicide. If groups are infected it seems to flourish, it has been so severe that mass suicide has been observed.

It is extremely resistant to treatment, as the host becomes part of its defense mechanism. Sometimes exposure to treatment can exacerbate the symptoms, and practitioners should be aware of the dangers. Threats of violence are not uncommon, verbal abuse seems to be guaranteed.

Treatment is however encouraged, and can be effective if administered well. Name-calling and aggression could prolong treatment and is therefore discouraged. Reason, logic and a good dose of skepticism seem to be effective, if combined with thorough reading of the texts that are the main cause of the virus, symptoms will eventually dissipate. There are initial side effects to exposure to treatment, patients may experience regret, anxiety, anger at the time wasted, however these will be replaced by awe and wonder at the amazing privilege of being alive now!
