I keep coming across rather startling headlines:
The CDC Was Fighting Racism & Obesity Instead Of Stopping Epidemics
We all knew this, didn’t we? They were fighting racism and sexism and obesity and smoking. Those were what mattered to them.
When this is all over, are they going to be able to go back to fighting racism and obesity? When WW2 ended, did people go back to doing whatever they’d been doing before the war began? No. It was a different era. Everything had changed. It was all change with everything.

Some people think that the ruling class will seize this opportunity to advance preexisting authoritarian agendas, but Steve Turley thinks it’s the end of globalism:
