What's the Word for this?
It's not schadenfreude, because I'm not happy any of these people are dead. To be clear: Yes, they were horrible people. The things they said about us, and their unrepentant desire to force a medical treatment on the rest of us, are unexcusable. But did I hope they would DIE? No, of course not.
When I see posts like this - and there are many - the same feeling rises up in me, but I don't have a name for it. The closest I can come to is this: That I'm watching a terrible terrible accident unfold in slow motion, that some of the people in the "accident" are just assholes, but many are people I know and love, and even though many of us tried to warn them, spoke out about the dangers of the new experimental thing, about how it wasn't even needed, let alone safe, let alone effective... almost none of them listened.
So it's like watching a train roaring off an enormous cliff. And the people onboard had many, many chances to get off the train, many of us were screaming at them: "GET OFF THE TRAIN!" But not only did they not get off the train, they wished death on those of us who didn't get on the train, and they tried to have us silenced when we said they should get off the train.
And now, a whole bunch of them are dead - the idiotic numbskulls. And no, that doesn't make me feel vindicated, or good in any way. I'm not sure I'll ever have a word for how it makes me feel.
I have produced a video clip featuring a group of individuals, including Brian, who tragically passed away unexpectedly after mocking others. I invite you to watch this clip, which has already garnered an impressive 100,000 views. pic.twitter.com/OAqfNRKabn

More here. I wonder how many of these people are still alive.
