It’s total nonsense for reasons we discussed above ... the whole temporal paradox of pandemic response. ;)

I can 't seem to find the "What happens if we stay closed too long?" article.  In short:    We wake up to a post apocalyptic economy; no jobs to go back to; monopoly money in our wallets; and govt aid is a meaningless exercise in hyperinflation. We will still be dying for lack of Covid19 vaccine, plus also dying of previously treatable ailments because we attritted irreplaceable healthcare workers while thinking we could flatten the curve indefinitely.

So either we all die cause of the virus or we all die cause capitalism collapses?

What a colossally bullshit fucking system we came up with here.

3rd option: abolish money and start feeding, housing and providing medical care to everyone.

I posted elsewhere on eplaya, but just having this thread topic start with "CoVid-19" means this vid could be appreciated by some burners here:

Asking who's going to pay for it or inferring similarity to a monetarily based economic exchange is completely irrelevant.
