Translation: “A piece of cloth put the all-powerful capitalism in the spotlight”.
Cartoon of 12/04/2020 in CTXT
It has happened all over the world. The anarcho-capitalist vultures saw the sky open with the candy of speculation on masks and respirators. In short, with all vital health material to face the pandemic. While ordinary people were making homemade masks, we were attending the a major mess in order to buy them.
A micro-organism, a piece of cloth, a few more or less simple machines have shown that the all-powerful system that claimed to be self-regulating only did so for those stories related to economic profitability. Its main virtue was never anything other than economic profit over the health and welfare of people.
Have no doubt, the most savage neoliberal capitalists with possible will do everything possible to mitigate the “collateral damage” and recover as soon as possible normality, their own, exhibiting their most false solidarity so that everything goes back to where it always was.
