Globalised does not mean connected.
In practice Globalisation has alienated people from each other, and from their own natures more than ever.
A world of consumers feeding off their respective servants – a class they seldom have any social interaction with.
Feeling connected with the rest of humanity is a different political dimension entirely.
‘Remain Indoors!’ Covid 19 Log
Never in the field of Human Experience, have so many been alienated from so many for so long.
As a species, we are simply not used to this. And our veneer of civilisation is very thin. Especially our current ‘fly-by-wire’ global survival system, which, without the computer of social interaction, would drop the plane out of the sky.
Now we know who truly produces the wealth. And it isn’t the brave, generous billionaires.
Where are the vital national regulations to force regions to comply with basic rules as in civilised states – the national preparations for this long foretold disaster?
Smothered by Trumpist Neo-Darwinism.
Globalised does not mean connected.
Amid our fear, we’re rediscovering utopian hopes of a connected world

If there is a truce, the problem will be preventing wholesale corporate carpetbagging, with mass pillage of the bankrupt wreckage, producing an even more powerful global profit axis than now.
Who and who’s army is going to stop them?
But Capitalism is now a dead duck. And the Covid 19 crisis is a welcome rehearsal for the task of rescuing civilisation from Capitalist Eco-Barbarism.
Xmas is a long way away. Don’t put it off..
2. People will have forgotten what life was like before The Event and will Remain Indoors. or
3. They will be ravenous for live shows and will flood the houses. Which will make up for your losses now.
You’re confusing them with the terrorist Fracking gangsters and other Carbon Cowboy barbarians who are determined to destroy the ecosystem and civilisation. The global terrorists who have eaten your brain.

Is this normal for SE London
“The corporation is also preparing to launch daily educational programmes now that schools have closed, along with plans to produce shows that cover exercising at home and cooking with reduced supplies.”
Here’s how to care for loved ones suffering with coronavirus

And who are the “loved ones”?
If it is to have any positive effects, the CV19 experience has to radically expand and socialise our definition of “love” beyond the tribal borders we have erected between us. The concept is of Love is relatively new and totally nebulous.
Since this is a unique event in human history, the Post CV19 world has to be different.
One which is compatible with the even greater challenge of rescuing civilisation from Climate Crisis.
Britain has been ravaged by the brain-rotting Brexit Plague for over 4 years.
With no sign of ‘peaking’ yet.;
Replying to @JamesCleverly
Because the PM and the government are proven chronic LIARS who have rejected science and professional expertise whenever it suits their overriding motivation of making money. They are self-proclaimed ‘Grand Wizards’ of Science Denialism. Why should anyone trust them?

What is Bonzo doing about the self-employed? Nothing.
Ensuring food-chains? Nothing with knobs on.
Your twisted NHS-busting ‘Austerity’ made us this vulnerable.
You will be the cause of many deaths.
For once would you READ something you see? “more and less strict social distancing measures could plausibly be effective .. These would need to be in place for at least most of a year. ..at least half of the year would be spent under the stricter measures” assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/upl
Italy was always Europe’s gateway to the East. And when it let in the Black Death the labour market was never the same again. Now that everyone knows that prosperity is created by the workforce, not the rich, maybe there will be an equally radical hike in political consciousness.
Political Capitalist Austerity has cost many British lives already and its greatest harvest of Neglect is yet to come.
Still no mention of common infection sites in social housing.
Thanks for nicking my lead. Copper-infused ‘screen-touch’ gloves are hostile to bugs. That’s why hospitals use copper on handrails. Meanwhile, housing estate rails and lift buttons Carry On Spreading #CV19. Ministers don’t live there.
“Sheila, before The Event there was a thing called ‘theatre’.
What was ‘theatre’?”
“Was it a food?”
“Yes, it probably was. REMAIN INDOORS!”
hold on to your hat. Its only a matter of time before CV19 is blamed on a sinister plot between Greta Tunberg and Chinese Communism to destroy capitalism and enforce eco-sustainable co-operative economics.
Seize the day.
This Carbon holiday is exactly the same world we will need to adjust to in order to mitigate the effects of climate disaster. A dress rehearsal for the cooperative Community Austerity of a sustainable future. The world must never be the same again.
No Going Back. The Post and Pre-CV19 worlds have to be as different as 1950 was from 1935.
The same world needed to fight Global Warming.
All this & more should have started weeks ago.”

Since when does Johnson trust experts? His cabinet is riddled with Climate Science denialists. People as rational as DAESH.
We no longer have many working communities – for obvious reasons..
Ban movement of all their extremely non-essential goods.
who will make a killing selling beds to the @NHS.
Some “National Effort”.
Then your solution must be the state acquisition of BUPA under emergency powers
You mean this is the time to bleed the NHS to death and fatten BUPA shareholders even more?
These beds must be requisitioned, not bought at Market prices.
BUPA has leeched off the state for far too long already.
Time for some payback.
Perhaps into other forms of music that seem more relevant to them.
More likely selling their latest hit to Saatchis to advertise gut-rot or cars that go too fast.
It’s fascinating how few tunes from the Maconochie era have been prostituted to Consumerism.
Meanwhile modern pop is fundamentally founded on Junk-Culture principles of power-worship and self-advancement.
The welfare state gave everyone a taste of a thing called freedom. The only freedom now is to choose between mortgage deals and tuition fee packages. To Obey, Conform and Consume.
“Obey & Serve” is the formal motto of one of the largest chains of consumerist Madrassars currently perverting young minds.

Might the abused term ‘iconic’ be genuinely used about this game?
After the brutal and judicial mayhem of the last round, plus the significance of holding the event during the Coca-cola Plague, there seems to be a lot at stake somehow.
