NO ONE TO VOTE FOR

It is highly recommended that readers use the following uncontroversial, historical detail as a (rather bland and unobtrusive) instrument that just might wake up those who are still sleeping.
The word "influenza" originated in Italy. The first record of this strange and inexplicable illness occurred around the year 1580. As the phenomenon recurred, acute observers recognised that it tended to 'pop up' simultaneously in multiple locations, sometimes on multiple continents. In an effort to explain this cognitively dissonant fact, Italian 'scientists' examined sun-spot records and noticed that outbreaks always seemed to coincide with peaks of sun-spot activity.
They understood that when the sun's surface (or CORONA) was most active, there were mass-ejections from the sun that manifested as spectacular displays of the Aurora Borealis in northern climes and that there were also magnetic effects (or magnetic 'waves') from the sun that struck the earth with uncommon intensity at these times.
Thus the word "INFLUENZA became the name of this illness. "Influenza" being short for "Influenza delle stelle" ... INFLUENCE OF THE STARS.
So, by the early 1600s European scientists had worked out that the cause of the illness now known as 'influenza' was the effect of unusual magnetic waves impacting the human body.
This "flu" narrative was accepted throughout the 1700s and 1800s. There were multiple references to the illnesses brought on by the proliferation of telegraph communications and the installation of AC power grids in US cities. Some of the reported effects were very serious for the persons involved, listlessness, loss of energy, depression, headaches and much more*.
The 'electric/magnetic' causation narrative continued as a model for explaining 'flu' symptoms right up until about 1920 and the global catastrophe of 1918/19 that was 'The Spanish Flu'.
