It doesn't seem all that long ago that I was looking at pandemic trackers on the web and waiting for the significant 10,000 and then 100,000 numbers.
Now we're edging up towards 5 million cases worldwide and over 300,000 dead people and I can barely focus on the numbers. It's become completely mind-numbing, and watching the USA go into complete denial mode isn't helping any.
A bunch of companies (Google is the latest) are saying things like "employees can work at home till the end of 2020". When those deadlines expire, I expect any remote-first companies who are hiring will have some excellent candidates available from those who have figured out that going into the office for their jobs is unnecessary controlling BS.

Now, more than ever, people are starving amidst plenty of food worldwide. Jobs and livelihoods are vanishing in the west, while the rich get even richer. This pandemic has exposed the failure of advanced industrial capitalism in the starkest terms.
Unfortunately for me, I no longer have the faith I had 40 years ago that collective rage will produce something better.
