Covid-19 and The One Way Forward


Regardless of the origins of Covid-19, there is clearly only one way forward and that way is
One Love:



The story of the chimeric virus accidentally or deliberately released from the Wuhan Virology Lab often doesn't get into addition-of-function viral back histories in US, Australia and Canada labs (e.g., see here).

Concerns have been raised for years about the dangers of this high-tech enterprise (see https://mbio.asm.org/content/5/4/e01730-14.short).


Consequently, I argue that the narrative of covid-19 as a genetically engineered chimeric virus is most compellingly a story of collective responsibility and collective fate.

LESSONS LEARNED

The most important lessons from the story of the Wuhan lab are that technological hubris is our Achilles' heal and that Love and Collaboration for the Welfare of ALL must be prioritized, constituting the only viable path forward.

At this point virus origins are less salient than the question of how to re-build a ruptured global society.

MOVING FORWARD

What kind of social organization can emerge quickly enough with the theorized love and force capable of confronting not only existing apparatuses of exploitation, but also looming and potentially cataclysmic health/environmental challenges?

One thing is certain: People - everyday people - not just politicians and "experts" must be involved in the decisions that will shape what emerges out of the present collapse.

    1. About a hundred billionaires, including the Koch's, the Mercers, and the Israel supporters want Trump to win. The millionaires and billionaires like bloomberg that rigged the democratic primary for biden, know that Biden will lose, according to a recent Newsweek article.
      They could care less.
      Israel actually wants the USA to use tactical nukes on Iran. That is the reason the pentagon has a first strike policy. That is the reason trump has abrogated all nuclear treaties. Never before have there been tactical nuclear weapons on submarines.

      Never before have intermediate missile treaties and nuclear treaties been so foolishly and cavalierly broken.

      The billionaires and neoconservatives like the Koch's, and the Mercers , Art Robinson , psychotically think nuclear war is winnable.

      Neoconservatives like pompeo actually think a nuclear war is survivable and winnable because, they are lunatics.

      Art Robinson believes that nuclear waste should be sprinkled over cities and in municipal drinking water to " Inoculate people to the effects of radiation."

      Trumps followers are actually fomenting for a civil war. a civil war, that would certainly mean massive nuclear reactor catastrophe in the USA.

      The BOOGALOO

      Trump has systematically deregulated nuclear reactor supervision, to the point of
      certain nuclear meltdowns and explosions, soon, post Fukushima.

      Trump's supporters are fomenting for civil war. He will run on a platform to blame china for covid.
      They want to blame China for covid and push China to war. This is, after Trump, botched covid, so terribly here.

      There is 30/percent unemployment in america The bubble for the stock market, which is divorced from the real economy, was poised to burst before covid.

      Hi level nuclear waste is parked all over the country enmasse . The above ground parking in shoddy containment is completely deregulated . 80 thousand tons of hilevel radionuclide ready to crash and burn.

      Hilevel waste is now defined low level waste in Trumps deluded and psychotic- procorporate-criminal crony world.

      Pieces of San Onofre have already blown up in the Nevada desert by Beatty and Idaho.

      That Same waste and more is scheduled to be dangerously buried, in drums in so-called low level nuke waste pits around the USA, by cities and even dumped in landfills. America has gone completely crazy.

      chuckee cheese dubbing Alex
      Alex jones rant about how he will chop up his neighbor and eat him.

      Yep he will hang his neighbors radioactive carcass up for food, after he foments civil war and causes all the reactors to blow up.
      Vote for trump to make sure everything is radioactive. Insane con man. That's Alex jones
