War of Classes
Posted August 20th, 2021
I'm tired of injustices and favoritism.
Are there really still those who believe that we are all the same in the face of the tragedy of this pandemic?
Are rules and restrictions inspired by strict health protocols and justified by scientific reasons, applied to everyone equally?
It happens all over the world.
The pandemic has widened the gap even further between the powerful rich and the rest of the world.
The normal citizen is forced to paracetamol and watchful waiting, while the èlite draw heavily on every cure that medicine has successfully tested.
The powerful rich aren't dieing of Covid-19, because Covid-19 is a selective disease.
It is the citizens abandoned at home and then hospitalized in desperate conditions, who die.
But at least the restrictions apply to everyone.
No, not even those!
Mick Jagger violates quarantine in London to go to the stadium and what happens to him? A fine that he can easily pay.
Nicole Kidman enters Hong Kong without quarantine, as well as all businessmen who belong to the board of directors of listed companies or their guests.
The reason? Get the economy going.
The show must go on and the normal citizen of the show is just an extra, perfectly interchangeable and never decisive.
After all, the pandemic was a godsend for the wallets of the earth's rich.
Turnover of multinational companies exploded upwards, while people were locked up at home, the small merchants closed and, the giants of the e-commerce collect profits hands down.
Not even the Green Pass or equivalent obligations apply to everyone.
I do not think it is necessary to enter American Congress, the French or Italian Parliament. Are they not places of gathering?
And the most dramatic and sad thing is the spineless acceptance by the majority of citizens, convinced that the return to normality must pass through the acceptance of inequalities.
