In the end, most of the world was infected through Europe, because their pandemic defenses were nil, and yet they want us to blame China. But China eliminated COVID-19. The Wuhan variant is gone. The hot mess that infected us was largely made in the EU.
Thanks to the courage of my parents to cope with the sins of Rule Britannia, I am living in the U.K and surprise, surprise, none of the news channels or respected commentators here are acknowledging that the spread of the Covid virus througout the world is due mostly to the poor preparation and zero pandemic defense measures. I think another aspect is the ingrained delusional level of individualism and entitled attitude of white people socialised for generations in the attitude that asserts ‘ME ME ME’ and denies the connectivity of community in which people actually are grounded and physically located.
More brilliant and truthful analysis from Indi Samarajiva - thank you!
