China, America, You, Me
How can we keep thinking about nothing but this plague? But, on the other hand, what else is as important? What else commands our worried and weary attention?
I have written about other subjects, posted photos of Nature for those quarantined in city apartments, and yet my thoughts keep returning to whether I or loved ones have already been infected; whether more and more people will die; what will become of us—all of us?
I hold China totally responsible for this devastation. Assuming that this was an accident and not purposeful; whether it emanated from Wuhan’s open-air wet market or from the Bio-terrorism research Institute, also in Wuhan; the Chinese government’s failure to warn, disclose, and reveal all in a timely fashion was not just unwise; in my view, it is liable, both economically and criminally, for our vast global devastation and for the world’s loss of lives.
May this be a wake-up call to American manufacturers who have outsourced so many of their businesses, including pharmaceuticals and technology, to China, merely in order to maximize their profit margins.
