Thrust of argument: Jeffrey St Clair writes:

<<

We are witnessing what happens to a country (this one) that faces a pandemic after it has privatized almost every aspect of its public social welfare and health systems and gutted the teaching of science in public schools so thoroughly that most people can't even understand what's coming at them

>>
Direction of resistance / implied resistance: <<

Speaking frankly, Angela Merkel warned that 70% of the German population could contract COVID-19

Removal of resistance: So, readers, and those who don't read, who judge me, who "know better" than me, but never read a single thing I say, who never test their theory that I am not entitled to call them morons. So. Are you going to presume that "the mainstream media" and the usual sources of peer-induced self-satisfied pretend-pretend street smart knowledge and brand name hierarchy can guide you through these troubled times? Are the journalists who have lied for and protected neo liberalism and neo conservatism going to suddenly deliver genuinely scientific and reliable truth to you because even more lives rely on their doing that than did on their doing everything they failed to do so far? Unification: St Clair asks you, reader, this question:

<<

Who would want to consult science when developing (gutting) environmental rules (or responding to pandemics)..?

>>

With reference to this in the NYT:

<<

Even with the latest changes, scientists warned that the regulation would let the federal government dismiss or downplay some of the most important environmental research of the past decades. That includes research that definitively linked air pollution to premature deaths but relied on the personal health information of thousands of study subjects who had been guaranteed confidentiality.

The proposal is one of dozens of environmental protection rollbacks that the Trump administration is scrambling to finalize before the presidential election in November. It caps more than three years of efforts to dilute scientific research, especially on climate change and air pollution, which has underpinned rules that the fossil fuel industry calls burdensome.
