The "funny" thing is that there will be more pandemics as contagious as Covid-19 in the coming decades, moreover we will witness too an accelerating AGW and the first showing of its most dramatic consequences with the possibility of a Blue Ocean Event (the melting season has just started in the Arctic and we are nearing record breaking melting pace already).

That's the problem with those docile succdems which, every once in a blue moon, Latin porkies will allow to reach the presidency. Even when mediocre, their government is almost fated to be a damn sight better than the usual shitshow, which will trigger porkies to no end, and they deliberately shit everything up (even more than normal) and blame it all on the succdem, who takes it lying down. That's how it happened here with Lula and our porkies fucked everything up so badly even they coduln't contain the Bolsonaro which grew out of the shit they took atop the country. If you're not careful, it'll happen to you too. Keep an eye on the reactionary shitters, because, and I'll be brutally honest here, half a dozen bullets in the right skulls before the Mexican surrogate Trump rises to fame will save you a lot of grief.

I imagine how the poor health workers are dealing with this, seeing this firsthand then arriving home and seeing nothing about it, like they talk about how dangerous and deadly it is yet show none of the danger and death. Completely abstract, reducing something which Americans expected they would never see to a spreadsheet. They might as well be watching a cheap disaster movie which can't afford to show the actual disaster.

We're running up against the fact that liberalism doesn't have a real theory of value beyond rejecting that it comes from labor. In a crisis all their rationalizations come apart and sound like incoherent madness. Total contradictory nonsense that serves no purpose but to remove labor from the books. The economy tanking because of a demand collapse literally cannot exist in their economic worldview so they cannot formulate a coherent response. Now they're just saying the olds need to be purged so we can get back to normal, and if you point out there's no jobs for people to go back to you'll get a handwave. The related problem is the economy was bad before this. The only reason the Number kept going up was the free money faucet was on and corporations were buying back their stock instead of investing in processes, scaling, and boosting productivity -- they were just reducing the number of shareholders they were responsible to, leveraging themselves to the point that the whole economy would collapse if there were two consecutive quarters that weren't at maximum productivity and profitability. Then it turns out it only took about 10 days and everyone's bankrupt.
And the real hardcore libertarians (hardcore liberals) were prepping for a doomsday scenario that'd collapse civil authority, allowing them to play out whatever race war genocide fantasies they had in store. But this is a slow-motion collapse and the civil authority, the cops, the army, etc. are not going anywhere fast. I'm not implying the cops are going to help or protect you, but they also don't like libertarian / anti-government people playing around in Uncle Sam's backyard without permission. So /pol/ just has to sit there twiddling their thumbs like the rest of us and wondering what happens next.
>>399586 >Those replies >Zobald Grumpf is a CHINESE AGENT!!! Holy fuck

It seems it is literally impossible for the USA to contain the virus. Due to intense neoliberalism, we have a choice between dying of starvation and homelessness from the shutdown, and dying of Corona if we don't shut down. Trump says "the cure should not be worse than the disease." THIS IS NOT THE CURE, this is some kind of fascist plan to create a massive reserve army of labor before "giving up" on quarantine anyway.

Even if some people see America as sold out by China, the failure of the American healthcare system, speculative capital, and the government itself, to deal with this epidemic, has been laid bare, for all to see. Revolutions grow in various degrees, to a large degree the American government has lost it's legitimacy, to a large degree America has lost the confidence of capital to China, to an increasing degree people have become more desperate and have to work between themselves, outside of the support of the state. Etc. It will only grow from here.

The more tin-foil hat oriented Right blames Obama or Bill Gates for inventing the virus. These people could literally be shot to death by the police, and they'd use their last breath to praise the flag and the troops. The Liberal Left just blames Trump directly for everything. If Clinton were president she'd have told Corona to "knock it off, you guys" and that would have been the end of it.

No. The CIA and the rest of the alphabet soup will use any means necessary to attack communist movements, sowing division is only one tactic, another one is shifting potentially revolutionary rage into "left" politics that reject direct action and instead attempt electoralism. "Left unity" cannot exist. However as communists we should think critically of one another's political beliefs, as well as think tactically, and keep in mind the goal of growing revolutionary communist power for an eventual overthrow of the state.

>>400328 >>400334 >thinking having purely consensual and non-manipulative sex with a 14 year old is wrong Age of consent laws are objectively required because it is impossible to determine from the outside whether or not something bad is happening or not because... 1. Adolescents are easily manipulable 2. Adolescents are powerless and subservient to their parents and other authority figures. and 3. Rape is virtually impossible to prove anyway. Thus, the act of having sex with Adolescents in general has to be punished. To use a metaphor, the situation is like if there was a room one could go to where could either push a button that killed a person or push a button to get ice-cream, you would have to ban going into the room because otherwise there'd be a ton of murders that all couldn't be proven. Thus, in regular circumstances our society has to ostracize all sex with Adolescents because otherwise there'd be way too much un-prosecuted rape/molesting/abuse/emotional abuse. However, in the specific circumstances of that case, we know that none of those things happen, so in this specific instance, there is no need to ostracize. What libs say about children not psychologically being able to consent is 100% true for 12 and below though >>400350 >Michael Foucault He literally has a long screed in history of sexuality where he complains about how ridiculous it was that a guy who kept paying children for handjobs did nothing wrong and shouldn't have been prosecuted/lobotomized.

No Secretely stalk and corner a terrified 14 year old girl in the bathroom. Without saying a word, pin her in the stall, grope her and make her touch your penis. She pleads with you to let her go so you do. He cornered this 14 girl that he had massive influence over, but never even spoke to before while she was using the toilet. And then he sexually assaulted her until she pleaded for gim to let her go. Think about this from his perspective for a moment, that of a much older adult man, that sees a terrified young girl fleeing from him, and then follows her into the bathroom to force himself onto her. It doesn't matter that she said it was okay years later, this man is a predatory pedophile.

Not to mention don't fucking follow a girl into the bathroom unless you guys have agreed to hookup. Finally staring at someone isn't the same as asking for consent. And he did this all with a young girl. Like that's 8th grade young. Adult men can't have healthy sexual encounters with underage teenagers. Even if consent is given verbally, there is too much room for poor decision making and abuse like you said. I know a lot of guys on here want to have sex with teenagers, but you fucking can't so cope.

>>400550 I mean, the entire idea of seduction involves doing actions which are not guaranteed to be acceptable ahead of time. You were supposed to be able to tell when 'she wants it' or w/e. In this case he told/guessed right so by the standards of seductive culture he succeeded. Obviously the problems with seductive culture is that some people don't succeed and it's a get out of jail free card for intentional rapists and other deviants. The me-too trend is about destroying or at least limiting seduction and turning consent into a contractual relation. It is analogous to the bourgeois revolutions in that it robs sex of its romantic guises and reduces it to brutal naked prostitution of various sorts. This is also to say that it is good and I support it, as the bourgeois revolutions were good and I support them. I don't believe in judging people ex-post-facto though, and I'm not sure that social norms would have condemned him at the time, but I don't really mind stuff like this even if they are minor excesses. >Adult men can't have healthy sexual encounters with underage teenagers. They can and do. People also drive drunk without getting into car crashes. One should neither trust others or oneself to not be abusive/manipulative. >Even if consent is given verbally, there is too much room for poor decision making and abuse like you said. I agree about the abuse/manipulation, but simple poor decision making is a freedom that I think should be allowed at 13. I would for instance not support laws prohibiting consensual encounters between two 13 year olds, nor would I prohibit my children if I ever had them from having sex once they were 13, where I would at least discourage them from doing so before that age. >I know a lot of guys on here want to have sex with teenagers, but you fucking can't so cope.

Pandemic “will last 18 months or longer,” leaked US government report warns https://archive.is/GJNYZ https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2020/03/us-govt-expects-18-month-pandemic-with-widespread-supply-shortages/ The US government is reportedly preparing for the coronavirus pandemic to last 18 months or longer and result in "significant shortages for government, private sector, and individual US consumers." A 100-page US government plan was leaked to The New York Times, which today published an article summarizing the highlights. "A federal government plan to combat the coronavirus warned policymakers last week that a pandemic 'will last 18 months or longer' and could include 'multiple waves,' resulting in widespread shortages that would strain consumers and the nation's health care system," the Times wrote. The 18-month figure is in line with the best-case estimates of how long it will take to develop a vaccine and make it widely available. There could be millions of deaths in the US and UK alone during that time, but social distancing and other containment measures could limit the death toll, according to Imperial College London research that we wrote about yesterday.

For Help On Coronavirus, Italy Turns To China, Russia And Cuba https://www.npr.org/sections/coronavirus-live-updates/2020/03/25/821345465/for-help-on-coronavirus-italy-turns-to-china-russia-and-cuba In Italy, when political analysts say, "Here comes the cavalry" ("arrivano i nostri"), they're not talking Hollywood Westerns. They're saying, "Here come our guys: the USA has got Italy's back." But today, the "our guys" have included less traditional friends. First, Chinese teams arrived March 13 with medical equipment and experts who explained that Italy's lockdown was too weak — too many people strolling, not enough protective masks, too many businesses open. Italy soon tightened the screws. Now the Chinese flag is displayed on the large aid shipments of medical supplies with the words "The friendship road knows no borders." In a mid-March telephone call, Chinese leader Xi Jinping told Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte that China is willing to cooperate with Italy to combat the epidemic and build a "Health Silk Road." Italy was the first G7 country to endorse China's massive Belt and Road global infrastructure initiative. After the Chinese came the Russians — in an aid operation the Italian media dubbed "From Russia With Love." Nine Ilyushin 76 planes arrived Sunday with virologists, epidemiologists, medical equipment and pharmaceuticals. "Never had so many Russian planes and personnel landed before in a NATO country," a story in the daily La Repubblica said. ''Also on Sunday came a medical brigade from Cuba — whose experts had previously battled Ebola in Africa. Thirty-seven Cuban doctors and 15 nurses (described by La Repubblica as the "most simpatico") were deployed to the Lombardy town of Crema. Photos of the Cuban team posted on Italy's Civil Protection Agency Facebook page had been shared almost 21,000 times by Wednesday morning. The many comments were of gratitude — and anger that the U.S., Italy's traditional ally, seemed absent.'' But the U.S. is sending some help. On Saturday, the Air Force "sent a C-130 filled with medical supplies to Italy," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday. "The U.S. military is also finalizing plans to make some of its excess medical equipment deployed there available to our Italian friends." It seems there's a bit of a tug-o-war over who gets to influence Italy in all this. The fact that the US military is sending medical equipment to Italy despite having the worst outbreak in the world within their own borders signals to me that they are worried the Chinese & Russians will be able to build relations with the Italians over this.

>>401089 That's exactly how capitalist explitation works. You pay the valut of the labour-power, determined by the cost of reproduction, instead of the value of the labour. >>400979 It is. However, unlike wage slaves, these doctors are volunteers. And it helps the revolution both financially and in soft power, and also the image of socialism, so I "support" the Cuban state in this and the doctors. The Cuban exported doctors are always paid a fraction of what the Cuban state gets from selling their labour. In exchange they get to work abroad without worrying about travel expenses, visas, certifications, insurance, and learning the whole nonsense that comes with surviving in a capitalist economy. It is a form of exploitation, but if I were a Cuban doctor I'd do it, it's a good deal. It's not like that's the only way to work as a doctor in other countries.

The situation in flyover 'murica is so incredibly surreal. People still have their day to day passing thoughts and remarks on what BRAND tastes better or is more enjoyable to watch. It's spring and the end of the work week so the s*burbanites are mowing their lawns, in spite of the reality that a friend, family member, or connection could become another number on the abstract "curve" that everyone has accepted needs to be "flattened."

>>401343 Peanut butter, oats, and brown sugar. I make oatmeal with half a cup oats (dry), 1/4th cup peanut butter, a tablespoon of sugar, and tap water every day and get 605 calories and 20g of protein out of it. However I'm a vegetarian so you may not need to eat so much peanut butter on the daily. You'll want a two pound bag of sugar for this, not a little box. My best advice is to calculate how many calories you need a day and multiply that by 7-14 days, and the figure out how much food you need to buy to satisfy it. Don't hoard, especially if you live in an city where a lot of people don't have cars. Some poor city-dwellers like me are already having issues with food security because the shelves are bare, we can't afford the expensive food people leave behind, and we don't have cars to drive until we find food we can afford like rice and beans. Good luck.

>>401453 You mentioned tapwater. I've been collecting water bottles I've used over the last month or so. I've got dozens now. I drink about three or four bottles a day. I've been refilling them with tapwater every time I empty em. Might be a good idea in case there's some sort of water or energy shortage (hasn't happened anywhere yet that I've seen but whatever). I had 40-something bottles I keep filled so in an emergency I'd have about two weeks worth of water for myself, or one week worth for two people.

Oh and with shit like pic related going on, I suggest you all start doing some more cardio if possible, especially if you're feeling like you don't really know what to do at the moment. Strengthen your lungs. Especially if you've ever had asthma, it's probably a good idea.
>>401453 >Don't hoard, especially if you live in an city where a lot of people don't have cars. Some poor city-dwellers like me are already having issues with food security because the shelves are bare, we can't afford the expensive food people leave behind, and we don't have cars to drive until we find food we can afford like rice and beans. I basically agree except for two things: >now you're accused of hoarding if you even get like a month's supply of essentials. it's ridiculous puritan individualism to distract from the fact that the bourgeois state is fucking us >because the USG and the private businesses are going to fuck up their distribution response so bad, it makes sense to plan ahead for that. what am I supposed to do, just accept it if the supply chain gets fucked and there's no more food on the shelves for a week? If you can prepare for that kind of disruption, you should. Even moreso if you think you're in a region where shortages will be bad. I have small shelves/fridge anyway.
>>401462 Yeah that's a good idea. I have empty bottles and an empty water gallon I've kept around and been meaning to refill, thanks for reminding me. My city evaluated its water system last month and concluded the water supply wouldn't be contaminated or compromised (unless they stop operating it presumably) and its water is some of the best in the country anyway so I haven't felt the need to collect water or those water purifying tablets. You can use a tiny bit of bleach to purify water too if things get really nightmarish.

>>401435 Reactionary shitters, being coward by nature, will constantly try to degrade public discourse and debase civilization little by little, only revealing as much of their horrible intentions as they can without suffering consequences. The day before yesterday it was "we must stop immigrants because we don't know if the ones coming here are criminals", yesterday it was "immigrants from inferior culture do not adapt to ours", today it's "China was deliberately negligent or even malicious when handling the virus", tomorrow it'll be, well, you get my picture. Obviously, times of crises allows them to lower the level faster as their bullshit is more easily normalized, and at some point, there will be no distance between discourse and violence. Not just stochastic terrorism, but the organized attacks. Their leaders absolutely have to be stopped before they reach that level, by hook or by crook. Given their coward nature, reactionaries are highly dependent on just a handful among them who actually exposes more of their monstrous intentions than it would be safe, acting as both a riverbend where reactionary garbage accumulates and as potentiator of the degradation of public debate and erosion of civilization. This makes them highly susceptible to decapitation tactics. If a dozen key figures eat a lead salad, the "movement" fizzles. Think of it as an investment which saves many, many more lives.

Riots, Tensions in Prisons Worldwide Over Virus https://thecrimereport.org/2020/03/27/riots-tensions-in-prisons-worldwide-over-virus/ Prison conditions worldwide during the coronavirus outbreak have caused tensions and unrest from Latin America to Europe to the Middle East, the Washington Post reports. Outside the walls, “It’s a very dark situation for the families,” said Mona Seif, an Egyptian activist whose brother is jailed at Cairo’s notorious Tora prison. China and South Korea have reported large outbreaks in their prisons. China has had 806 cases in five prisons across three provinces. Turkey is seeking to fast-track a plan to release as many as 100,000 inmates from overcrowded facilities, joining Iran and other countries that have freed some prisoners in response to the pandemic. Elsewhere, anger over restrictive measures and anxiety about coronavirus have led to violence. In Colombia last weekend, nearly two dozen people died in riots that swept the prison system as inmates protested inadequate safeguards. In Italy, riots erupted in almost 50 prisons this month, leaving 13 inmates dead and 59 guards injured. In the Middle East, where hundreds of thousands of people have been rounded up in recent years in response to political uprisings, terrorism and the growth of conservative Islam, many prisoners are held in densely populated facilities that lack hygienic conditions and sunlight, leaving them susceptible to disease and infections. The majority of these prisons are in Egypt, Syria and Iran. “Generally, if you are in prison in the Middle East, you are in a pretty worse case than other parts of the world,” said Philippe Nassif of Amnesty International USA. In Egyptian prisons, where as many as 60,000 people are said to be jailed, there have been no significant releases or plans announced to mitigate the risk of infection, activists said.

>>402048 Keep in mind that "confirmed cases" are just those who tested positive. If you don't test adequately, you will not detect those that are infected and show mild symptoms. Estimates are that "only" 20% of the infected get a serious condition with one fourth of those needing intensive care. This means that the real number of infected can be 10 to 20 times higher. In the US testing is due to shortages mainly done for already symptomatic individuals. Infected that are currently incubating, so "presymptomatic", can still spread the virus, but have no chance of being detected this way. That means that, at 100k confirmed cases, there are currently about 1 to 2 million infected Americans.

>>402347 >most people could prolly learn that in a two days training. That's a bit naive fact is if you've been hospitalized you've got underlying conditions, which will exacerbate,or, you have a compromised immune system... Either way it will go beyond putting people on respirators. t. an MS sufferer

A small update on Bolsonaro. First, I tried to sum up the madness which, I fear, is a worldwide trend, with Brazil, the USA and the UK as the worst current cases: >>399628 >>399659 As for the coronavirus, from the start, his puppeteers made him downplay it and whine about muh sensationalist press. As it kept spreading globally, his bullshit finally started shocking people instead of being omninormalized. When his entourage infamously spred the plague to Trump's clan and den of thieves, his unending stream of imbecility was finally starting to sink into people's minds -- and ditto for his American mindtardmaster. This doesn't mean, however, that he ever admitted having been a carrier, as that would make his culture war bullshit not just exposed, but impossible to ignore. So the circus kept doubling-down, which, incidentally, it's an atitude I have noticed they have accepted as inviolable dogma. Not cancelling the already iffy protests in March 15 which was called before the global spread (see post linked below) provoked visible outrage, and his "orders" for people to keep on woking were duly shat upon by everyone who isn't personally connected to his clan, including most, possibly all, governors, who overruled his bullshit. One of whom, a shameless crook and early Bolsonaro supporter, took particular offense with this disregard for the public health because he's a MD by trade. His disdain for Bozo's attitude was palpable during the press event, and, it should be said, a lot of Bozo's election partners-in-crime have been using the many opportunities to flee that sinking ship. Since reactionarism knows no bounds (I'm not being sarcastic when I say it's a pathological antagonism to civilization) his puppeteers had his powerless ass still give "orders" to include temples as the essential services which are to remain in operation during quarantine. Regarding Bozo's personal relationship with Corona-chan, see >>403252 Lastly, he's a cuck. Seriously. He hadn't been paying his missus much attention the past few months (not even a boob job seems to have done the trick), and she spent some time traveling the country as part of the health minister's entourage. Rumors, naturally, kept growing, until Bozo, tactical genius that he is, confirmed them by accident when he fired that minister out of the blue and forcing his wife into a lonely but short-lived sinecure at the national library.
>>402456 that dude is a fucking asshole stupid religious mongoloid told his family not to tell anybody else about it, what a shitty weasely thing to do
>>403331 what is the opposition like? does bozo show his face daily to give "updates" or anything
>>403592 Regarding Bozo's updates, well that's pretty much all he does. The other two branches have left him powerless outside of his ex officio duties, which now boil down to nominating people his handlers tell him to nominate. His ministers, however, have been shitting up their respective portfolios, but Bozo himself has almost nothing to do. He doesn't get invited to international meetings, foreign dignataries other than his few fellow troglodytes avoid him like the plague (even more so now), and even his public appearances have to be curtailed because he's literally too stupid to read from a teleprompter. His handlers actually have to come up with imbecilic declarations, cheap PR stunts like schmoozing with carefully selected people at rodeos, Facebook livestreams and manufactured controversies so the news has any reason at all to mention him. He was elected on Spectacle and fiction, so he needs Spectacle and fiction in order to continue to exist. About opposition, it's a topic in itself because of the many idiosyncracies of this new age in an already idiosyncratic country. One which I'll mention outright is that he his puppeteers completely wasted his political capital and chances at any kind of power grab out of sheer stupidity and pettiness. Several of the media outlets nominally opposed to him made overtures towards peace after the election, and all were rebuffed. His circus has the mentality of terminal reactionaries: they accept no cooperation other than complete submission to themselves. The biggest idiosyncracy is probably the political autism which has possessed the people after his election. People just plain don't seem to see politics as something which is part of their lives. The comparison with soap operas which I made in one of those posts is true in more than one sense, because politics not just has been completely depoliticized, but fully Spectacularized. Not necessarily in the sense of entertainment, but in the passivity that it entails. By definition, those who aren't acting are watching and can do nothing to change the act, and this seems to be how everyone unconsciously thinks of politics now, just something which you watch on the news and read on the internet and can't affect at all. So the left has been dead due to lack of presence in the streets, but then again, so has the right. Bozo's support peaked at the election and has only ever fallen since. Also, the media deliberately black out anything regarding the left to prevent its return to power in the wake of the clown inevitable pratfall, and in this horrible new world, if it's not in the media, it doesn't exist. I think this topic goes way, way deeper than I can express here, involving Spectacle, hyperreality, sociation consensual reality, consensus reality (not the same thing) and more. I dedicate a lot of posts in the BR thread to this. This divorce between people and politics is no doubt related to the anti-PT campaign which spun out of control and led to this fiasco. I fear the people have been legitimately conditioned in the true sense of the term. During about 5 years of the Brazilian establishment's concerted effort to oust and smear PT, they could summon immense crowds at will to astroturf anything connected to PT. Now, with the concerted effort over, they can no longer do so, and more importantly, the people won't act by themselves. It's like you trained a dog to bark on command but, unwittingly, this makes the dog never bark without your command again. Another factor, connected to the previous two, is the omninormalization which I detail in one of the linked posts. Bozo's circus gives us a reason to impeachment a day and gets away with it. The opposition media operates in the typical fashion of reporting "objectively" while using a very biased tone, choice of words etc. This worked wonders when the entire media was hammering the same message, but now, these indirect cues for twhich told the brainlets "you should be angry at this" or "this is actually something good" have no effect. So it just ends up making whatever is being reported, no matter how absurd, appear normal. The mechanism behind this is disturbing if my analysis is true, as it means that the conditioning done to the people includes making all the thinking for them. The anti-PT campaign taught them to not get just (biased) information from mass media, but what to think about that information. It's as if people lost the capacity to judge information by themselves, or to connect separate data in order to reach conclusions. Now the indirect cues of only part of the media are not enough an obvious command for the dog to bark, and the media is trapped by the very format it uses to manipulate information and serve bourgeois dictatorship. Namely, it cannot tell the unvarnished truth because the format since since the beginning of mass media was designed to keep this from happening in the first place. No one can make their hyperreality stick, so in the absence of one, whatever happens, happens. There is no baseline normalcy, there is no outrage nor shame so long as crimes and sins are committed with conviction. The anti-PT campaign spun out of control and broking fucking reality itself. Still regarding omninormalization, it's like this. If a newspaper were to print "Bolsonaro fucked a chicken" (he actually did) on the first page, it would be blitzed with lawsuits, smeared and ostracized by loyalist media, possibly harassed by his supporters and, now, also be defamed by the most delirious claims possible by a massive network of bots and shills. The fact itself it reported would be assimilated by very few people. I could fill a library with examples of this, so I'll just keep to the biggest case. Glenn Greenwald's paper revealed, with unassailable evidence, that the Car Wash operation, central to the anti-PT smear campaign and Bozo's subsequent election, was indeed in cahoots with several major media outlets and political powermongers, just like the left said. And it caused not just one but two coups, the disguised coupeachment and Lula's arrest in the election year by Car Wash itself. It's absolute fact that we have been living in a farce since 2013. And the impact of these earth-shattering revelations prompted an immense nothing at all. It helped Lula be freed earlier, but that's it. We're stuck in this bizarre limbo where facts literally don't matter anymore. That's because the only people with the power -- and the duty -- to act on these accusations are themselves the accused. It's like politicians simply ignored the Watergate revelations until reporters stopped asking, and the people didn't ask at all. By now, everyone outside of Bozo's circus and its criminal beneficiaries wants it burned to the ground, but they can't do so without incriminating themselves. So they're currently undoing the Car Wash fairy tale they helped create. Until then, it seems Bozo can get away with murder. Perhaps literally so, if they don't act on this coronavirus absurdity. One thing I noticed before the coronavirus finally creating some baseline reality against which people could better notice that indeed this president is a retarded crook, is that this happened, to a lesser degree, during the Amazon fires last year. This makes me think that something outside of the Brazilian reality, namely the international nature of these two topics, finally provided that baseline reality at least for a while. Having lost ours, that of someone who wasn't hit by the anti-PT campaign and the madness which followed served as surrogate.
>>403331 How the fuck didn't people demand him to step down? Seems like he send his nation directly into a massive catastrophe so that porky could reek in some extra gains.
>>403872 That's post-post-modernity for you: facts don't matter. And I have to point out that America and the UK are in the same position right now. The latter's PM attempted a palace coup and openly talked about a genocidal "strategy" for handling coronavirus, and somehow he's not only still alive but still in charge. America's throne will be disputed between two brain-damaged pedophiles. Slowly but surely, Porky debased his own system, and if my suspicions are right, he has begun doing this actually on purpose once Trump's accidental election made him realize he could get away with anything. He has decided to deliberately dumb people down in order to increase his already uncontested grasp on power and preserve the so-called end of history forever, and in the process, he broke something which we literally don't have words to describe, creating this insane situation. Here in Brazil, Bozo's rise was unsurprisingly married to the spread of particularly cretinous reactionarism, including flat-earthers and antivax. The right never elicited the best things in people, but now it's fully appealing to the very worst in us, without restraint. Pathological reactionaries are forcing their illness onto others, literally making people sick. The irony is that the obscurantism and crass individualism they have fostered now enables corona to ravage through society almost uninhibited. Who knew that spreading anti-science and fuck-you-got-mine mentality would backfire, right? Mercifully, Brazil and the UK aren't too far gone -- I was sure Trump's election would be the perfect historical mark for the end of the legitimacy of liberal democracy, but Brazil managed to earn a dishonorable mention alongside that, and temporarily surpassed America in this race to the bottom. Now America is undisputedly on the lead again, as Brazil and the UK still have sane people to hold the reactionary cretins back. It was the epicenter of the plague of imbecility, and it definitely didn't contain that one either.

>>403764 >>403872 >>405122 And lest anyone think there is a depthwhich reactionaries will not plumb, today Bolsonaro has been hobknobbing around Brasilia, shaking hands with the crowd and all that jazz, reaffirming that coronavirus is not a serious threat and claiming the numbers are being fraudulently inflated. Meanwhile, his vast network of bots is saying "a friend of a friend" died of a car crash and were shocked to see the death certificate listed "Covid 19" as the cause of death.
