Outrage is warranted. But outrage unaccompanied by analysis is a danger in itself.

And of emotional intelligence.

Gates and Musk. Interesting contrast.

quote:
On Friday, Musk tweeted:
"The coronavirus panic is dumb"

Now, contrast that response with that of Gates, who recently posted an article on his blog entitled, "How to respond to COVID-19."

"In the past week, COVID-19 has started to behave a lot like the once-in-a-century pathogen we've been worried about," writes Gates.

"I hope it's not that bad, but we should assume that it will be until we know otherwise."

You can really see how stark the contrast is of these two responses when you place them side by side:

Musk: "The coronavirus panic is dumb"
Gates: "I hope it's not that bad, but we should assume that it will be until we know otherwise."

Musk and Gates both possess brilliant minds. But while one of these responses is potentially dangerous, the other promotes a rational, "safety-first" mentality--and could possibly lead to saving millions of lives.

On the contrary. This is a government function. We wouldn't be in this position with testing it the government had been doing its job six weeks ago.

I agree with Daniel -- this shouldn't be a private capital investment or issue. The fact that the Gates Foundation is willing to step up is good news in the short term, but ultimately exhibits a profound failure of the federal government to do its job.

The Gates Foundation - and all private organizations - can move a lot more quickly than government simply by the decision process.
