It is difficult to explain the over-reaction to this novel virus except that this is consistent with the thirty- year use by governments of the fear factor. The ruling class knows that fear is a means of control. The ruling class knows that as long as workers are fearful, they will not seek change. And they know that fear promotes the narrative – everyone for themselves – especially when it comes to toilet rolls and antiseptic wipes.
