A planet called Corona

  • Published in World

 

The crisis around the globe

The Corona crisis has affected the whole world.

In many places, public life has come to a complete standstill. One wonders how it could have come to this. It seems that civilisation has lost sight of its goals. Fear of contracting the virus is everywhere. For the most part, the security measures of the respective local authorities are being observed. On the Norwegian peninsula of Frosta, the epicentre in Norway, the numbers are falling due to the lockdown. On a small scale, it gives hope for the world. 

 

In Trumpistan

Trump is mobbing the big US car manufacturers with his ideas of what they should or shouldn't produce. He literally "screams" on Twitter. As the serious-looking warlord in a designer suit. It shows again that he is incapable of dealing with the crisis. Money heals everything, thinks the soul-searching Trump and in the afternoon he signs a support program for 2 trillion US $ for the "helicopter economy" of the USA until the elections. Intellectually, he has not understood the real problems at all. But the crisis shows that guys like Trump have outlived their usefulness, not because they didn't really understand the meaning of the crisis, but because these strange characters are still playing with the crisis. Following the crisis as a kind of big event that serves their whims and stupid nationalism. Trump is trying to make his mark with a type of election campaign event. 

Ridiculous is almost the theatre between the United States and China, who accuse each other of being somehow responsible for the pandemic. The US that China tried to cover up the crisis last year. None of this is understandable. On the other hand, an influential functionary is accusing the USA of having brought the disease to the Chinese metropolis of Wuhan. It shows the inability of both states to deal with the real problems of humankind. A scapegoat is sought for the situation. 

 


Since Trump completely underestimated the situation at the beginning, he now appears even more helpless and aggressive.

 

The world

In South Africa, a national lockdown began last week, and in India, life has come to a complete standstill.

The pictures and contributions of the beating police in India are unprecedented: 

Elsewhere, in Kenya, the immaturity of the whole system is evident in the crisis:

Africa's geographical and infrastructural location could lead to the second wave of corona in Europe. People do not want to think at all about what will happen if the virus breaks out in the refugee camps and is, so to speak, reimported into Europe.

 

It will undoubtedly lead to a global economic crisis. Anyone can calculate that not entire economies can lie idle for months on end. But shouldn't we see this crisis as an opportunity to change fundamental things? It does not help to put more money into the economy - something has to change in the structure of rich and poor. 

 

Shocking parallels

In France this week the word of horror from the wartime was circulating. "Triage", it means selection. It's usually used over coffee or something. 

 

It means nothing more than that the doctors decide who else has a chance of survival. These patients are then helped by modern medicine. The others are released as painlessly and gently as possible into death. The physicians at the University of Tübingen described this as follows: "Dying with opiates and sleeping pills" Terrible to think about the fact that the virus itself can put you in a situation where doctors have to decide whether you are viable. On the battlefield in the medical tents, this may have been the case during the I. and II. On the battlefield in the medical tents during World Wars I and II this may have been a partly inhuman alternative, but not in modern times, in Europe. Now sick people are flown from France to hospitals in Germany. 

 

 

 

Wounded Triage France WWI

 

Instead casually mentioned this morning in the Federal Republic of Germany is that the Minister of the Chancellery, Braun, has made it clear that the measures will be maintained until 20 April. It is probably better that way, given the exploding infection figures. He'd better think about how the nursing staff will be relieved, instead of the call for collective "gossiping". Not just with money. 

 

By the way:

"Our solidarity against your isolation."

 

The left-wing scene does not stop anything from committing further attacks, even during a national crisis.

On the contrary, in some places vehicles have been set on fire, further fuelling fear. The left, like the right violent scene, is a problem that needs to be solved immediately after the crisis, because the violence has reached a level that can no longer be justified. Not violence anyway.

It has long since become impossible to justify the behaviour of the masterminds of these scenes under the guise of fighting against capitalism. Radicals of all stripes can confidently be seen as another virus. 

In Italy, the situation has got entirely out of control. People are already trying to explain why this is the case in Italy.

It was astonishing that one could already read that about 400 people want to sue Tyrol because the virus was transmitted during après-ski in Ischgl. Again a scapegoat is being sought. Germs and bacteria are a general life risk. 

 

 

Dead days in St. Pauli 

Stop Reeperbahn, tt/kasaanmedia, 2020

 

There, where usually thousands of people pass through every hour, there is currently nothing going on.

The Reeperbahn is no longer the centre of the fun; everything is closed. Trains of the Hamburger Hochbahn are parked here, where trains usually arrive and depart every minute. On Facebook, people are made aware that Hamburg's homeless, who typically have their quarters on the Reeperbahn, are in a complicated situation. There is help through private initiatives. The Senate did not want to do anything, as can be seen from another entry.

In difficult times, specific right-wing forces in Germany also look for scapegoats. These time gender studies are being misused for these purposes, as a tweet which the so-called "Union of Values" dropped proves. To stir up hatred against people, to endeavour as subtle as possible, the operators of the right spectrum are perfectly capable.

SARS Covid19 and the consequences - We stay at home and practice social distancing

  • Published in World

 

Loss of reality is a matter of life and death.

What is so difficult for some contemporaries to understand about this, no one can comprehend. 

After almost the whole of Europe is in a coronavirus-influenced exit restriction, there are still people who think they have to have bigger parties to stay in touch. In this respect, madness knows no bounds.

 

Those who do not stay at home may make themselves the murderer of their neighbour. No one has that intention. But pure ignorance and stupidity lead to so-called Corona parties.

 

How can groups get together to have parties while elsewhere people are dying from the virus they spread?

 

The generation of the fun society has lost touch with reality. This issue isn't a movie on a cable network; it's the sheer reality. This reality is far crueller than the hollow gibberish of a late-pubescent 23-year-old who believes that he or his immediate environment is immune to SARS Covid 19. Young people are also affected by lung disease. And die. 

 

The state is threatening punishment. The question remains how to punish people who do not understand the necessity in such a biblical crisis. The risk of permanent virus infestation up to the supposed herd immunity, after infecting an estimated 70% of the population, is quite high. Corona, as even the last should have understood, is not a type of beer that can be poured and gulped down. Everyone will have something from Corona for a long time. 

 

Europe's understanding of freedom and the desire for other shores certainly does not set an initial limit to the establishment of a dictatorship, as was read in the social networks.

 

Entirely only, the health system has already reached the limits of what is possible. There is only a certain number of ventilators available to patients. Thanks are due with the utmost respect to those who endanger their own lives to cure the patients. Also, the cashiers at the many cash registers, who make people's lives possible, are in the front line against the virus that can also infect them at any time.

In this context, what doctors and nursing staff can give is exhausted. 

It is not only in Spain and Italy where the situation is dramatic. In Madrid and the Corona hotspot Bergamo, a drama of undreamt-of magnitude is looming on the horizon. The world is entirely overwhelmed by a virus that has been warned of for years, decades. It does not help to turn a blind eye to the suffering of the sick and those who have to fight the immediate consequences of the daily smouldering corona crisis. The images of the military trucks driving away the corpses are probably one of the symptoms of the carelessness that the world now has to attribute to itself. Even, if it shakes to the core, what is happening in extreme mercilessness, so to speak, before the eyes of the world public. Yet, the experts will not be able to say how the demoralized population can be helped soon. The comparison with the plague, smallpox, cholera or typhoid fever is misleading. Modern medicine will find a way. It is probably because the world has known about the SARS virus for more than a decade. Then and in the time since SARS has been far away. This pandemic virus was warned not just once, but in many meetings and calls by the WHO, the United Nations World Health Organisation.



Toilet paper hoarders

 

The ordinary Homo sapiens could imagine a lot before the crisis. The fact that once in one of the leading industrial nations of this world, toilet paper would be hoarded as if there were no tomorrow is in keeping with the spirit of the times. The fact that this led to skirmishes and real arguments at the cash register is something that leaves the average citizen speechless. Noodles and rice, potatoes and meat, everyone could understand if the stock had to be a little larger in uncertain times. Some contemporaries seem to have a chronic distrust of the state's statements regarding the supply situation. 

Again, this concern is unfounded because the governments have a strategic reserve for decades. 

 

Donald Trump - the apocalyptic fake news rider from the Wild West

 

 

Donald Trump, the self-proclaimed doer, learns for the first time that money cannot cure a crisis. Now he still feels like a warlord, with anti-malarial drugs. Trump first thinks about the financial aspect of the situation and not about the people, the suffering and the possible consequences. He intends to maximize profits. 

The martial behaviour of an uninformed person is Trump's homemade disaster.

Angela Merkel expressed it differently in her television address: the most severe crisis since World War II. To compare World War II or its end with the invisible enemy Covid 2019 is also due to the situation.

 

Even politicians are only human; populists expose themselves through the virus as completely incompetent puppets of their system, which they have created in complete ignorance of competence and political blindness, like Boris Johnson in England. The population must fear an absolute catastrophe. 

 

You might be tempted to understand Trump as the apocalyptic horseman, when he then wants to give every American a 1000 $ bill with his new concepts about helicopter money, and sends a friendly letter to his friend Kim Jong-un, brother in spirit and also cheeseburger-lover, about the friendship between him and the North Korean dictator after all. However, at the moment, there are other things demanded of Washington's ruler than to emphasize the good relations with North Korea. But even Kim's sister, Kim yo un, had to emphasize that Trump wants to maintain the friendship with her brother to attract attention again. 

 

Martial language

 

French President Emmanuel Macron also used these comparisons, saying that France was at war against the virus - the coronavirus.  Meanwhile, field hospitals are being established in France and Baden-Wuerttemberg is taking in sick people from France's completely overburdened health system. 

The brittle apparatuses of Europe are gaining momentum. Sometimes we no longer know what to be more afraid of, the virus or the economic crisis that will follow, which once again serves any fear of the disintegration of the economic structure of Europe. 

 

Messenger of Terror

As in every crisis, the ambassadors of horror come with news that the world can only marvel at secret laboratories - a conspiracy by criminals in China, mutual recriminations. China accused the USA of having brought the virus into the country through some members of the army. The USA and numerous other Western nations publicly reprimanded the unwillingness of the People's Republic of China to have wholly underestimated the virus at the beginning of the outbreak in Wuhan and to have suppressed the news of the "Chinese virus" with the methods of a totalitarian regime.

 

One wonders whether the figures from China are correct or whether the epidemic simply changed its location. 

 

Criminal networks in China claim to have made money from the crisis.  These are accusations that are difficult to prove. But they cannot be refuted either. In North Korea, there are said to be no diseases so far, which nobody can imagine any more. Comrade Kim even had time to watch another missile test through the telescope and to devote himself to his favourite pastime, the war game. There is nothing in the North Korean media to indicate any infection. Allegedly, the excellent cooperation between the regime in Pyongyang and Beijing at the beginning of the crisis had helped to ensure that North Korea's hunger and missile paradise was spared the capitalist virus.

 

But the world's greatest crisis will only come when the virus breaks its path in Africa and depopulates entire regions. The current hotspot is in South Africa, and here on the ground, a corrupt regime has destroyed the health system. Due to the many refugees in South Africa and the crowded squatter quarters, the virus will be able to multiply unhindered. 

Here, too, only social distancing and the unrestricted observance of curfews will help.

A very miserable character - Donald John Trump

  • Published in World

Nobody wants to believe what they can read about Donald Trump at the moment.

Trump never tires of profiting from the misery of third parties and has also found his calling in the coronavirus. Trump is cunning and devious, and like everything he does, he tries to make a profit from the possible death of millions of people. 

This time the focus is on the German Tübingen-based company CureVac, which is in the process of developing a vaccine against corona SARS-19, which Trump hopes to secure exclusively for himself. CureVac wants to serve the world and not some US despot. 

Like a vulture, Trump circles over the suffering of millions who are fearing the virus, and he is waiting for his chance to make a profit from the global crisis. Besides, Trump would be able to blackmail the world into believing in his theories of the political monster. 

 

Has Trump been spying for profit yet?  

Just think of the wall and his connections to the companies that want to build this wall. Trump is trying to lure the Tübingen-based company CureVac to the United States by all possible means to produce a vaccine against corona exclusively for America. He, the obnoxious self-promoter, who symbolically walks over dead bodies to stuff another dollar for his pocket, would accept the death of millions to secure this profit. The question is, has Trump used the US secret services to spy on a company in which Bill Gates and others are also involved? Just recently, the CEO of the Tübingen-based company was replaced. 

If so, there has to be a break with the USA until Donald Trump is no longer the ruler of the White House. Europe must distance itself from a person who first shines through extreme stupidity in the crisis and then wants to grasp the profit for himself. Otherwise, however, the virus is none of his business, as he has stated. 

 

 

Nauseating greed

In this crisis, which is leading the world to the edge of the abyss, Trump is showing his real character in Trump's populist nationalism. That of a miserable, dissociable shopkeeper's soul, who is now crying out for substantial sanctions.

His behaviour calls for sanctions from the world community, which is in urgent need of the vaccine. Trump disturbs the feverish work of the scientists in his contemptuous world view by making dubious offers to the scientists. He harasses them in this way and keeps them from working with his self-made boorishness. The fact that he is picking a fight with the federal government in Berlin in the background to get the will of a silly little boy named Donald John Trump disturbs the state apparatus even more. There has been talking of nationalization, and also that does not deter Trump.  With a contempt for humanity that is unparalleled, for his crude world view of rich and poor, for profit at any price, even at the cost of several million deaths, we see ourselves confirmed once again that trump fascism is a world view of yesterday.

The Federal Government does well to declare Trump as Persona Non-Grata.
