What do people mean when they say ‘don’t make the coronavirus epidemic political’? What isn’t political about it? The fact that refugees, the homeless, & political prisoners are sitting ducks for the virus? The reality that seniors will be triaged & refused treatment? The fact that it exposes way too late how broken most national health care systems are & how unable to handle the epidemic sentencing thousands of people to death? That Kashmiris can’t even watch educational videos on the internet because the 2G internet speed under occupation precludes that? The fact that Indian nationalists are throwing cow pee & cow dung at the problem rather than demanding emergency medical care for those infected? The fact that the Chinese Communist Party regime allowed unsanitary & abusive treatment of animals to prevail & cause the epidemic? Just exactly where do we begin to untangle the politics of capitalism in its barbaric phase from the worldwide coronavirus epidemic?
