I disagree with your original thesis, the economy isn't necessarily "fucked" if we wait this thing out and the government provides the proper resources to the working class during that process.  That's the narrative the billionaire class wants the peasants to think as their profits dry up, but that doesn't make it true.

It's truly amazing that the recent protests in the US isn't about The Elite getting trillions in free money for this crisis as the peasants are essentially getting zero. The protests are about the peasants demanding to risk their lives to pay their bills to benefit The Elite. We clearly have a country full of retarded people who love their oppressors.

This is, of course, the ultimate test.  If anything is going to bring the middle and lower classes to the breaking point, it's going to be this.  Economic inequality has been offset by the availability of cheap distractions for the masses.  Now, the masses are more restless than they've ever been and they're becoming more restless by the day.  In addition, the simple comforts that are so cheaply available in the U.S. are becoming less available and more unaffordable.

The time is ripe for a real social uprising, if not a violent one.  If the elite don't see that and do something to assuage the masses, we might just see some real change in the U.S.




I would like to think so, but realistically I don't think it will happen. Hitting the streets won't be enough. That took years with Viet Nam, and those stakes weren't as important as this.

It would take a general strike, and Americans are so ideologically brainwashed to think they are individualistic, and under current conditions there is no way to feed and house workers during a strike. Not with unionization at 11.3%.

If Corona had hit hard before Super Tuesday, we might have had our FDR. Instead we have Bozo I and Bozo II.

This could be the first real crack at UBI and proper health care for the U.S.. And, well, UBI for places that already have decent health care.

Senator Richard Burr was subject to a search warrant and had a device seized by the FBI today. Probably related to his insider trading.

No seriously though all I want to see is people wearing masks. I want people all be on board with the reality that this is not only real but if all mitigation orders are followed we are still looking at more outbreaks and staggering deaths in the fall. Now that some people are opening up before they meet trumps own guidelines are setting everyone back not just sickness and death wise but econically if we jump the gun before cases decline and they move through the proper phases it economically will cause quarantine measures to be not only extended by opening faster then the guidelines permit but it'll force our hand into a true lockdown like Italy had to do with forms to go get medicine or groceries.

So instead of having that it'd be nice for people to take this seriously and with great respect to what scientists say will happen. There's many ways businesses can adapt around the country to keep people as safe as possible and I have seen some people breaking the order but also make sure to adhere to strict guidelines and I support them in reopening for the most part because they are hurting but also doing everything they can to protect customers and employees. I will say one thing we do need just stop looking at this as do we close the economy or open it. That is not what's going on here, we need to find ways to reopen in the safest way possible.
