Big "American Exclusivity" Could Not Cope with a Small Virus

Against the background of a pretty boring “coronavirus” and the world pandemic caused by it, practice revealed a real invisible worst enemy of America. And this is not the insidious Covid-19, but the social institutions and organizations of the United States, which decompose the system that generated them from the inside. This is written by the famous American reporter and writer Calvin Woodward in an article for the Associated Press (AP).

The power built by Washington over many years of the bureaucratic system was impressive. It struck the imagination of mankind and seemed unshakable. However, a new infection from faraway China cast doubt on this legendary vertical when “cascading setbacks and incompetence” of this hierarchy appeared almost instantly. What was supposed to protect ordinary citizens in a crisis and emergency crumbled about the simplest tasks. Experts even sarcastically say that it is easier for America to catch the number one terrorist or defeat the army of some tyrant than to cope with a relatively dangerous virus.

A threat the size of a molecule at the root cut off the vanity of "American exclusivity," which is now impossible to see with your own eyes, but only in the propaganda of apologists for neoliberal globalism, writes AP journalist.

A state with incredible military power, a daring dream and unprecedented ambitions, runs through the backyards of its own warehouses in search of ordinary cotton buds

- says Woodward.

And this incident repeats itself over and over again, even after President Donald Trump was endowed with extraordinary powers of “production and supply.” Isn't the little virus scared of this law?

- the journalist frankly laughs.

Going too far, Woodward compares the current US with the "pandemic viral madhouse." The United States health system, which has only recently been envious, is bursting at the seams and showing institutional weakness in everything: from top to bottom. Federal Centers for Disease Control and national health institutes have stumbled over what they should have been prepared to handle. Thus, they turned out to be completely useless, which means that all this time they were pointless eaters of budgetary appropriations.

What a simple task! Establish production of masks and ventilators. Isn't that a superpower?

- wonders Calvin Woodward.

In order not to be unfounded, the journalist refers to the newsletter of the well-known venture capital fund Andreessen and Horovitz, which cites facts of the lack of the most necessary, as well as a list of the shortage. At the end of this document, the situation with coronavirus in the United States is called "a grandiose failure of institutions that will negatively affect the near future of the country."

It remains only to think about what other institutional formations of the United States are not ready for the challenges. Perhaps a vaunted army? The defiant behavior of the White House, tearing into battle for almost half the world, raises the question of the possibility of defeating a powerful enemy, because in another industry a smaller and more dangerous enemy cannot be defeated. Fortunately, there is still no chance to verify the thesis of propaganda in practice. Especially in the realm of real war.

    The discrepancy between the declared slogans and reality is already so obvious that less and less people believe these liars. If anything great remains in America, then this is the scale of the lies. And so the rot of them climbs out of all the cracks.

    It all depends on the tasks set, and who said that they should be human?
    Freedom is being cut to the noise, laws are being changed, atypical regimes are being adopted, even industry owners are changing, unnecessary extra mouths and eating resources are disappearing (not only beds, but also bankrupt hospitals are idle in the USA). The huge problem of pension payments is being addressed. Faster will replace people with robots, even in the same army, the service sector.
    Wild activity is observed even in small scammers ...
    Everything is happening very quickly (so much so that some governors begin more active resistance, for the sake of their interests, of course). But to achieve maximum effect, they need time and even more pumping. So that later everyone would appreciate the new "normality" ...
    So everything may turn out to be performed on five ...

    The USA has very strong medicine for the rich. On the scale of war or epidemics, it simply cannot cope. But what joy is there for us? Putin also makes medicine only for the rich. During his reign, thousands of hospitals and clinics were closed. Doctors have been reduced as unnecessary. The result is before us. The epidemic cannot be stopped, doctors, saving other people's lives, die themselves! This feat is accomplished in the workplace. For some reason, I immediately remembered the pilot who landed the plane in the field and immediately received the hero's star. Although he also fulfilled his professional duty perfectly. So far, only China has shown and proved that "you are going the right way, comrades." There is both power and medicine.

      Dear friend, don't go overboard about "thousands of hospitals and clinics are closed." Not so long ago, the program for the creation of FAPs (feldsher-obstetric points) ended. There were also programs "zemstvo doctor" and "zemstvo teacher".
      I just work as an electrician designer. I had a lot of such objects. Also now there is a program for the modernization of hospitals and clinics.
      I agree that it’s easy to break, but to rebuild is much more difficult. And this is not only in medicine, but also in production, education, science, etc.
