I think this is the one exception though. The world DID shut down. The elite few actually took a hit in order to avoid spreading the virus and wiping out the many that are poor and defenseless. But by doing that the economy that feeds poor and rich alike is now at a great risk and the ones who don't have money stored away will soon be dead anyways if not from covid then from sheer hunger. For once I would have opted for the heartless choice that would save us in the long run. Not to mention that covid is less lethal than a common cold just not curable with antibiotics.
Considering they employ you (the elite few, that seems like a pretty rude undertone vivant). Additionally you do know you can quit anyday if you think you can do better independently right? And let's face it if they are really 'elite' their lives are never really at risk? Protecting and feeding you is not the responsibility of other people. Protect and feed yourself, if you can't? Well it's capitalism.

Wtf are you talking about? The stock market had taken huge hits. Please study the market before stating anything
@SkoolSheuter The Dow went down from 29000 to 18000 really fast and now it is back up to 24000 during a global pandemic. A drop from 29000 to 24000 when the entire globe is in a depression tells you that money is basically imaginary. It is totally a man-made concept and we determine how it behaves. Grow a brain, please.
Huge checks.. do you actually know what life costs.
Those checks don’t even pay half a rent for one month. And many people aren’t getting Them. Unemployment is a joke try getting on a list. The food pantries have miles long lines and are depleted far before the mast customer. people are starving. That isn’t to say quarantine was needed. The government made fake money to Give trillion $ bail outs to banks and big companies. Nothing to do with workers.
@VIVANT In the USA, it costs more to donate food than to throw it away. It's ridiculous. Farmers are actually euthanizing pigs and chickens and dumping tons of milk because there was no way to effectively give it away.www.reuters.com/.../piglets-aborted-chickens-gassed-as-pandemic-slams-meat-sector-idUSKCN2292YSAnd I know teeneagers who are getting HUGE unemployment checks that FAR outweigh what they would have made working. It may be true that the poorest people might eventually suffer because of this but that is how our country is set up. The poor always get screwed. But that is a function of a broken system that rewards the greedy. Money is imaginary. To call some money "fake" and some money "real" is nonsense.
So if money and the economy is fake, why do we all bother studying and working?
Because you are a sucker. Find the easiest possible job and put your money in the stock market. Let the Trumptards slave away while you have your money working for you.
What has been “sacrificed” is some of our civil liberties. That we may never get back. We cannot allow our leaders to over reach with their power. The power is the people. We need to remind some of our leaders of that very simple idea.
True. What do you think of this article? www.forbes.com/.../#19aae05b379c
They will get the virus anyway.
@emmily2396 NO, its a seperation. Those who have it stay at home and thoughs who haven't they stay at home. So with them being separate thoughs who have are infected can get treated , thoughs who are not infected, just isolate at home. So controlling the infections.
