COVID Update July 26: We can virtually eliminate the virus any time we decide to. 1/

But the oligarchs and plutocrats don’t want to eliminate the virus. They are using it as a cudgel to break labor and any remaining power there. It’s working — why would they stop?
No, it’s not a formal conspiracy. However, just like anyone or any group, they tend to take advantage of the opportunities offered to them. This is one and they are now in fact taking full advantage. We will not contain the virus in the US anytime soon for just this reason because the effort to destroy labor is working beautifully.
The virus being out of control now is the plan.
