two things can be true at once, porky fucked up the lockdown because they wanted to profit from it. really, the entire debate ITT relies on Westerners blinding themselves to the rest of the world. everyone else is dealing with COVID in a much different way, either through actually experiencing catastrophe like India, or ensuring that the state has enough capability to deal with the issue like China or Vietnam.
the West, on the other hand, has done this hybrid approach where most people will never experience the negative effects of the virus but the pain falls disproportionately on invisible demographics who don't go online to say how it's all a fuckin hoax or something. it leads to people like Greaves-san to saying it's all fake and Porky made it all up because they themselves cannot see it. i don't blame Phil here for being such a covidiot, Porky fucked it all up in the first place.
the primary issue is the dominance of financial capital seeking to use any crisis to plunder the working class, but covidiots and anti-vaxxers can't admit it because it would prove that the issue is capitalism rather than government. seriously, every time i watch a Jimmy Dore video, there are tons of rightoids in the comments who think the government is the sole cause of their country's problems, the business leaders are somehow the ones being held back by Demonrat communists. these are the deluded fools you've thrown your lot in with, Phil. i sincerely wish you the best of luck and that they never find out you're a communist.
