Normalcy Bias: The Biggest Threat To Your Survival During Disasters Like COVID-19
Whenever a natural disaster or world-wide catastrophe like the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak hits the people can usually be divided into two groups:

Those who prepared ahead of time, and those that didn’t.

The people who don’t prepare usually operate under the mindset that everything is going to be fine, and nothing bad is really going to happen. They underestimate the effect of natural disasters no matter how many warnings are flashed before their eyes. This denial of the possible danger during a disaster is known as Normalcy Bias.

What is Normalcy Bias
Normalcy Bias is defined as follows:

Normalcy bias is a psychological state of denial people enter in the event of a disaster, as a result of which they underestimate the possibility of the disaster actually happening, and its effects on their life and property. Their denial is based on the assumption that if the disaster has not occurred until now, it will never occur.

And their biggest threat is the paranoia and roids raging weak cowards who're afraid of people and have the muscles and guns and beligerant attitude to show for it.

I've met many people, many scared men, big men, scared of people in general, who have attitudes to seem more scary than the next person, raging addicts, fearful people trying to act tough, being mean... they become cold and hard because they are really afraid. Too bad so many don't really know God, I mean, his name starts with Jesus.

My normalcy bias is actually the will of God bias. As long as I'm not complaining to anyone nobody should mind.

I have nothing against guns but people who are not calm are less a threat than those who are not calm wielding weapons.
