The US Covid Catastrophe: Pathology of a Failed System
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared Covid-19 a pandemic. Almost two years have passed, and we in the US are now approaching 80,000,000 cases and close to 1,000,000 Covid deaths – the largest number of any country in the world – with no clear end in sight.
The pandemic has swept through US society, leaving a path of disease, suffering, death, political and social upheaval, and economic destruction in its wake. The response by the US government and capitalist politicians has been a complete disaster.
This Sunday at the Marxist Library, we will review the destructive impact of the pandemic, the catastrophic capitalist response, political and economic repercussions, and a prognosis for our future.
Our speaker will be Allan Miller of the ICSS Program Committee.
