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.
