Retweeted by Rick DeVos12/ Another strategy: coevolve! [insert COEXIST bumper sticker] But that takes a long time and outcome still may not be desirable.
Retweeted by Rick DeVos11/ But US/Western policy of "Invade & Invite" is breeding virulence externally while simultaneously exposing immune system to the pathogen
Retweeted by Rick DeVos10/ You either utterly annihilate and salt the earth for 1,000 years (killing good in the process: antibiotics)...or you keep your distance.
Retweeted by Rick DeVos9/US policy against terrorism is worst option: partial course of antibiotics. Most ISIS leaders used to be in prison, now free & virulent.
Retweeted by Rick DeVos8/ But a terrible policy is to use insufficient and inappropriate antibiotics -- thus encouraging more virulent strains to emerge.
Retweeted by Rick DeVos7/ Another way to address bacteria, specifically, is to destroy them with antibiotics.
Retweeted by Rick DeVos5/ One way to avoid pathogenic microbes is distance. Avoidance is low tech and effective. Re: ideology, think walls & immigration policy.
Retweeted by Rick DeVos5/ So if you think of radical Islam as a virulent pathogen (not the people, the ideology), there are better and worse ways to address it
