It's April 9th 2020.
Where will we be by July 11 th ?
Half a million new confirmed cases of coronavirus have been added to the global tally in less than a week.
Every country worldwide has reported cases of community transmission.
While home news focuses hard on home countries , a fire is lit under all the population of earth. Extraordinary events have been taking place , un
noticed , unless you go looking .
In India , a massive exodus of informally employed people has taken place , in fear of the lockdown as much as the disease , huge numbers of people
have lost jobs and without money there is no food , and the effect is immediate . Chaos has gripped India , the supply chain is broken from the very
farmers whose labourers have deserted , to the markets which handle the goods , the roads which are shut between the district's . All those migrants ,
mostly walking back to home villages , have been stopped at orders from Modi s government , it's not known what choices they now are encountering
outside of many cities like Delhi and Mumbai , but their journeys to leave for home have been militarily curtailed at state borders .
Looking to other countries , with major populations already on the breadline , living in slum conditions often with very poor sanitation , it's a
forbidding future for life whichever way it's considered.
Much of our food and the goods we use in the West are handled by countries we not even give a thought to as we use them , the premium prices we pay go
via the low wages that companies and corporations often enforce . Very soon , our supply chains will be affected too . Imported goods will slow ,
maybe even halt from some countries , perhaps many .
When we re reassured , " there is no shortage of food or goods" the words are not " there will be
no shortage ..."
A report from the guardian last week stated that the UK government were privately "furious" with th CCP .
The reason , because their reliable observers in china report the opposite of what the CCP has said , that numbers of cases was over 40 times the
stated caseload of 86000 or so , that the spread through China is accelerating out of control.
They're #furious , because its political suicide to directly contradict what the CCP are announcing , which to the world is a huge lie . The CCP has
made an attempt at narrative control and to ignore the massive emergency which coronavirus now is in that country , most likely to avert as long as
possible the dissolution of its control .
This is not made up information , it's the truth ,(and most likely). That the msm here too reports the lie, they're collectively kidding themselves.
You can't handle the truth . Wuhan is open again , but for the cameras , and meanwhile nobody enters china without going to a ' facility' first , for
The CCP will be desperate to restart their economy and may soon be enforcing that new protocol, despite the death and morbidity spreading ever faster
. Who knows what the next 101 days have in store ?
Even if lockdowns work in the West , and it will take perhaps months not weeks more , the landscape of the economy has already shifted enormously.
Whether the laissez faire world of opportunistic capitalism survives the upheaval , it's hard to know.
What we do know is man hours measure exactly to value of goods and services , and that's why major profit makers do such a lot of shipping between
countries. And when countries can't even organise their own internal supply chains , globally , what's to become of exports ? Logically speaking ,
they dry up , they stop.
Is there a way out this ?
No. All you can do is adapt to the new realities . We may see the virus , but what we come back to after lockdowns have worked , and that's if they
work ( see china cases above ) and while they don't work ( see India case above ) ..
What we return to , jobwise , economically speaking, the status quo , is
going to be different., across the board . Everyday , to survive we
must come back to basic necessities , again and again . The very foundation of any economy is food , and the sustainable and efficient production and
trade of such. Looking ahead past the next 201 days , would be wise , and those resource runs you do now are going to make the difference in the
future. Things like seeds and gardening kit are now more valuable commodities , perhaps than ever . Fortunately , we hope , in the same plans laid out
for pandemic mitigation , along with social distancing measures are plans for seed and tool distribution , should things get dire . And they might
well do. It really is the last resort but it's perhaps the only way you might get to live, long term , by growing
your resources .
And if it does come to that , extreme end , then rest assured the world promises to be much better
post pandemic. Farming as a way of life , is
the best way of life , and if that's the destination and we reach there alive , this world would be saved from a disaster of its own making , which
wasn't coronavirus but environmental. degradation and destruction , and the wanton abuse of resources such as the oceans and the air itself . And if
some people can't stomach that reality , of being simple farmers, so be it for now , it's only so long before active circumstances will make
Wherever we get to , good luck getting there x
