Thanks and no thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic. Humanity and inhumanity are coming together to play separately! Humanity entails doing things with human face while inhumanity involves doing things without human face. Humanity is socialism with inhumanity is capitalism.
Most economies in the world have long left the socialist lifestyle and embraced the capitalist one which has no human face. capitalism is all about business profit alone. Most countries practice the mixed economy of bot the capitalist and socialist. A blend from the human and inhuman blender!
Today, as people are enjoying the holiday they have been craving for, most nations give their countrymen some form of palliatives. That is socialism. Some other do not and leave the populace at the mercy of the market forces which is predominantly and understandably capitalist. In the Coronavirus capitalism, humans and vehicles are not allowed to move freely such that transporting farm produce to the city becomes herculean. The vehicles that are able to find their way charge high fees. The market men and women also sell high to recoup the cost of transport, etc.
We are our own friends or is it enemies? in this Coronavirus capitalism.
We are our own friends or is it enemies? in this Coronavirus inhumanity
We are our own friends or is it enemies? in this Coronavirus mercantilism.
