A lot of folks acting as if 2020 has just been a string of bewildering bad luck, rather than what it truly is: a concentration of widely and reliably predicted and interconnected disasters that advanced nations of the world could have mitigated or prevented but chose not to.

Right. We knew another pandemic was inevitable. Did nothing. We knew once this one flared, what it’s course would likely be. Did nothing. We knew climate change was going to lead to what’s happening now in the West and worse. Did nothing. We knew the financial crisis would throw millions out of their homes into precarity, often for life. Did nothing.
All of this was both predictable and preventable. Don’t fall for the “who could have known?” propaganda that occurs immediately after and for years following such disasters. Though I see that many of you already are.
Control your own mind — don’t let others do it for you.
