Under the consistent (sic) hand of helmsman Trump, official estimates for the death toll in the USA are ranging up to 200,000. More worrying from the perspective of profits, talk is now centring on the probability of a six month lockdown. If the economy of the USA collapses while China’s recovers, then the US’s global economic hegemony will be at an end. What would have taken years, has been achieved in months.
The US is home to the world’s most powerful military with bases spread around the world. The US will not give up its hegemony without a fight. Their media is starting to play the blame game. This is going beyond racism and into the realm of “someone has to pay for this”. The drums of war resume their beat.
In this light I would like to continue the discussion on what socialism should represent.
