pretty pathetic to watch my city have one of the worst infection rates in the country and the gov just trips over its own dick about it constantly and then the chinese government announces they will covid test every single one of the nine million residents of the city of qingdao this week after a few cases emerge


we could manage this pandemic effectively but the rich people who run this country hate us

@dankwraith to be elie wiesel for a moment, the opposite of love is indifference, not hate

our death cult of "individual responsibility" and "freedom" has left us with the idea that people are not owed the fundamental rights we are supposedly so obsessed with

and thus the virtue ethics of our society is devoid of impetus toward interest in maintaining those standards through proper application of positions of power
