Re: Covid19 and the betrayal of sub-Saharan Africa
It couldn't have gone better for pooling the resources of the rich from the poor had it been planned. I don't think it was but the knife edge of life and death for the vast majority was totally disregarded in the face of potential mortality for the rich (old white people).
Africa's a good case in point but I suspect it's the same the world around.
Imagine if they'd poured the same money as fast into hiv, cholera and dysentary! Third world issues really don't factor into the social conscience of most westerners . We see it as a fact of life (for others )
