“By hoarding and squabbling over vaccines in a race to immunise their own populations first, the richest countries are risking countless lives… Meanwhile, the virus continues to circulate and mutate in poorer countries, risking the emergence of new, more transmissible, and deadlier strains.”

Om icron variant: a menace of capitalism’s making

*drumroll*

Capitalist conspiracies, anyone?
A strikingly obvious method to reduce the population?
Neocolonial fascism on the rise with a Big Lie of mandatory vaccinations, brought to you by vague gestures towards a fully nationalized reduction of solidarity, occupying the center of the stage?

And that was that. They'll need more rope, a bigger boat and a smaller sea. And who would we be to deny that?


Hang in there!

It's not countless if you struggle with numbers. So what exactly is your problem here, math?

I am also wondering how vaccines make a difference when we all know they don't actually prevent you from catching the disease. It's also worth mentioning that most drug resistant strains of bacteria come from poor countries where they do in fact get the full course, but most people decide that once they feel better, they don't need to finish off their meds so the bacteria that are left are the resistant ones.

The situation, as always, is far more complicated than the OP wants everyone to think.

Why not. You'll have to look up their vaccination program yourself now.

Spoiler: it's pretty good thus far, no patents involved whatsoever.

I'm just going to say that article is the largest streaming pile of crap I've seen in awhile. EVEL knievel can't make that leap.. I mean,


The only way to ensure any sort of return to normality is to combine the fight against the pandemic with a battle to overthrow the rotten capitalist system, before it drags humanity even further towards barbarism.


Essentially, since communism has killed more people in recent history than all wars and pandemics... Communism needs to kill off most of the planet so coronavirus can't.

That's a leap Evel can make.

So if anyone who wants can make and use the Chinese vaccine, why aren't those countries vaccinated?

The article claimed they were "countless".

As far as Capitalism, why blame the capitalists. Why isn't it the fault of the socialist? It is even in the socialist credo.

Hasn't Socialism created a menace of their own making? Every time there is some problem in the world, the socialist point the finger at capitalist and get off scot free. Why are capitalist required to pick up the slack?

Because the 1% are the only ones that can afford to "pick up the slack". And they got their money because of crony Capitalism. I'm cool with capitalism, just not the dodgy version of it that we are living under.

So ... OK. The patent on the Chinese vaccine is freely available meaning anyone can make their own copy of it so long as they can produce and distribute it. That means that any poor country out there with any sort of drug distribution network at all can produce and distribute their own version of SinoVax.

Every country has its own regulatory framework and every drug distribution network inside those countries must operate according to that standard. So long as the apparatus exists in any fashion, then according to you, China has made the recipe available.

I know how this works.

So why aren't more countries vaccinating their own?

**EDIT**

Or ... are you saying that China didn't patent it, but they also aren't letting anyone else know how to make it? And if that's the case, then how are they any better than any other wealthy country with the means to vaccinate its citizens? That is the main charge you are making decrying capitalist nations, but China is clearly not capitalist and also clearly wealthy enough and with the means to vaccinate its own, which it is doing, just as are other wealthy nations.

But your charge is this is bad and root of all COVID evil. From the example of China, we can see this is not a capitalist strategy but a nationalist one. So perhaps you ought to aim your barbs at that.

and that pesky virus for which there is no cure and no vaccine

came from the Socialist in China

and then they sat back and waited for the capitalist to fix it.

Socialist broke it, socialist should fix it.

People don't need to vaccinated and capitalism isn't the problem.

Who cares how it figures into your politics, it's a good piece after all. I might say the same about yours if that's on the table one 'countless' day. Who knows, right?

I dunno, noblesse obliges? At least that's how the right to property was derived in the first place, amirite? You'll have to deal with it until the peasants with pitchforks take care of private property for good, I'd guess. Like... tomorrow? Anytime now... better pay your taxes, Elon.


Happy Thankstaking!

you want to give "peasants with pitchforks" the vaccine?

that is a silly idea.

On the other hand, when the Globalist tell you
they are going to reduce the population
by getting rid of the useless eaters
you think that is a good idea.
And the Globalists are all socialists - you will own nothing and be happy - without a vaccine.

a reply to: sraven

Kinda reminds me of news clips of I think the Bush/Gore presidential election.

"what about the 13000 votes that weren't counted"?
"how many"
"13000"
"I guess they were counted"

These big pharma company's aren't really 'profiting' from what is going on, they are simply filling a market that has exploded. And their revenue growth has expanded exponentially as a result, that's not their problem, they have the capital and reach for resources, who else are you going to go to? The ye ol' Apothecary down main street?

Although, I do agree to some certain extent yes the top bourgeois nations of the world mainly the G 7 - 20 have seemingly hoarded the vaccines and put a 'me first' attitude, but that's another issue entirely, a moral and ethical one.


The myopia and vampiric exploitation of poorer countries by capitalist imperialism is squarely to blame for the emergence of Omicron.


And this is what that article all boils down to, which is simply not true. The virus was going to mutate whether we liked it or not, it's endemic at this point, and it was always going to end up like that.
If you want to cling onto this colonialist / imperialist mindset during this time, I guess we can, and the article isn't wrong in that regard.

But lets get back down to reality shall we?
