GSTAAD—Hippocrates is known as the father of Western medicine, and he diagnosed and named the disease “micropoulaki” during the Periclean period, around 430 BC.
He did not call it a virus, but a sickness of the brain. Some years later, Aristotle described the micropoulaki syndrome as a disease, but one that was not contagious:
Micropoulaki breeds envy enzymes that in turn break down the immune system and promote infection. Those poor jerks from the British Guardian and the BBC who loathe Boris Johnson had their immune systems broken down long ago by this dreaded disease. Both The Guardian and the BBC have long been hotbeds of micropoulaki, yet the medical and scientific professions have been unable to help, such is the envy and frustration of those who work there.
Ditto The New York Times, where micropoulaki is raging and which has been seen as its epicenter for the past twenty years.
The whole place became more infected when a younger family owner took over, one who was diagnosed at birth as a quintessential micropoulaki victim.
Disaster ensued. The place became totally infected, with columnists such as Roger Cohen, Frank Bruni, Michelle Goldberg, and Thomas Friedman frothing at the mouth, the female writers outdoing the men in jealousy and hate.
The irony is that poor immigrants in America who aspire to work hard and make it have enjoyed 100 percent immunity from the dreaded disease. Poverty pimps and those who encourage them to seek something for nothing are the most vulnerable. Last but not least, studies have shown that societies where micropoulaki is prevalent tend toward authoritarian Marxist cultures.
