Other than the continuing guessing game on what Putin's plans are for an invasion of the Ukraine, we have HCR with snippets of political matters in the wake of Trump's sludge boat. And, in an attempt to bring together all of the previous articles relating to the disruption of the "supply chain" there is this piece, which points out that there were "winners", who made out very well. There are those who say they are winners because that is the way Capitalism works in a free market. But all of this unfairness and misery is just another example of what I call the Underbelly of Capitalism. The best way out of the problems pointed out in all of the articles is to have in place the tools of REGULATION. Regulation with meaningful and swift enforcement may have been able to repel the damage we have experienced. It may be too late now, but if we survive the economic damage that this Covid pandemic has created, we could perhaps learn from our mistakes.....but then, again, we blindly and stupidly don't:
Insurrectionists and the destruction of the principles of Democracy have no place in the United States of America.
