Ebola has arrived in America, so panic! Be afraid! Watch the news and cower in fear as the inevitable apocalypse draws ever closer! The Ebola virus, which can only be spread through direct contact with blood or bodily secretions, would seem to be the instrument of our demise according to the news. Those of us with intelligence know it’s just a ratings grab, and there’s little reason to be afraid… but there is reason to be curious about the situation. Miracle drugs suddenly springing into existence, companies seeing record profits off the drug testing… just what is going on here?
Is the entire Ebola epidemic just a coincidence of flare ups, company products, media exaggeration and simple minds? Or is there a deeper plot here to drive profits of those who hold stake in the drug companies through careful manipulation of media outlets and Ebola communicability while solidifying power of the elite? Seems farfetched, but that’s basically what happened in V for Vendetta, and that movie was a documentary probably.
Josh lays out his entire theory on how this is all going to unfold, and while it is farfetched, it is not impossible and the logic is there. Ben dismisses the entire argument with a crickets sound effect, as a joke, which sets off Josh on an unexpected meltdown leading to yet another on-air fight. The two battle it out, with Ben mostly backpeddling since he encouraged this topic in the first place, and like all of our arguments, it fizzles out in a sigh of apathy where no one cares anymore. Kind of like our listeners.
