A protest in Franklin, Tennessee, led to parents yelling at medical professionals who had spoken in favor of masking. One parent told them there was 'a bad place in hell' for them. 'We know who you are,' another threatened. 'We will find you.' In Texas a parent ripped off a teacher’s mask, and in Northern California an anti-masker assaulted a teacher on the first day of school. In Los Angeles a reporter was attacked and one man was stabbed in an anti-vaccination protest. Likewise, a host of conservative politicians across the country is adding fuel to the flames with anti-vaccination rhetoric and legislation against masks.

Malo je verovatno da će ovaj virus biti iskorenjen. Veća je verovatnoća da će postati endemski, ali da će ga većina zapadnih država uspešno obuzdavati. Ne i siromašne države. Trideset najsiromašnijih zemalja na svetu, koje zajedno imaju skoro milijardu stanovnika, u proseku su vakcinisale jedva 2 odsto populacije. U Demokratskoj Republici Kongu taj broj je 1 odsto, u Haitiju 0,24 odsto, u Tanzaniji 0,36 odsto. U tim zemljama „život s virusom“ značiće nešto veoma različito od onog što će značiti na zapadu.

... izbor pred koji je Rio Tinto stavio meštane zavadio je ljude u selu koje je ranije bilo složno.

„Zavadili su se porodično. Čak je i naš deda kradom jednu njivu prodao, ostalo nije smeo, pa je ispao haos živi. (…) Tako imate dva brata, jedan prodaje, jedan neće, imate kumove, eto tako.“

"Under neofeudalism, the directly political character of society reasserts itself. Global financial institutions and digital technology platforms use debt to redistribute wealth from the world’s poorest to the richest. Nation-states promote and protect specific private corporations. Political power is exercised with and as economic power, not only taxes but fines, liens, asset seizures, licenses, patents, jurisdictions, and borders. At the same time, economic power shields those who wield it from the reach of state law. Ten percent of global wealth is hoarded in off-shore accounts to avoid taxation. Cities and states relate to Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook, and Google/Alphabet as if these corporations were themselves sovereign states — negotiating with, trying to attract, and cooperating with them on their terms. Cash-strapped municipalities use elaborate systems of fines to expropriate money from people directly, impacting poor people the hardest."

Singapore’s tech-utopia dream is turning into a surveillance state nightmare. 

In the "smart nation," robot dogs enforce social distancing and flying taxis are just over the horizon. The reality is very different.
