The Coronavirus has hit, and in its wake has been exposed the cracks in the system, in economics, health, education, transportation, and the law, just to cite a few areas of human endeavor. We have seen how easily these systems can and have fallen apart. The glue holding these systems together have cracked, frayed, and shattered.
There have been scattered attempts to bypass and ignore COVID-19, but few have proven successful. Across the nation, we see a surge in COVID cases and the overwhelming number of states report increases not decreases. That many Americans regard the wearing of a mask as a political decision instead of a public health option is a measure of the spread of this virus and the absence of common sense. COVID-19 is winning in America and around the world.
From imprisoned nation, this is Mumia Abu-Jamal.
