<From the /crisis/ thread:
After a certain point, you have to come to realize that the bourgeoisie don't act by accident, generally speaking. Their social class necessitates planning ahead to a greater or lesser degree. It might be as short as a week, next quarter, or some years, but the drive for profitability requires some degree of forward thinking.
But what do we see but the boldest recklessness, even in the face of total disaster? Porky sits idly by as disaster after disaster rocks the world. They know what the cumulative result of this will be, and yet they persist. Mega storms flood cities, the water supply everywhere is being poisoned, and citizens are enslaved to pay debts that will never be paid off.
This pandemic and economic disaster have been a long time in coming, and nothing was done to prepare for it. What we're seeing isn't a lack of a plan, but the plan itself. The US isn't dragging its feet on preempting the virus (only) because of incompetence, but because the results are desirable. It doesn't matter how many thousands or millions of people get sick, lose everything, and/or die, because that only stands to benefit the bourgeois down in their fallout shelters. Death, disorder, and destruction are what they want, because it makes it all the easier to tighten their grip and squeeze the working class for every sliver of lucre they have.
It's an extermination. We are being exterminated. This is naked, open class warfare with the unabashed intent of profiting from the deaths of millions in the effort to secure their hold on society.
