All so true. We can’t keep up with the number of dead in one comment. Sometimes it’s hard to understand why Trump and supporters seem to cheer the deaths but something recently occurred to me. Large events of death and displacements always create a great opportunity to steal from the victims, especially real estate otherwise harder to steal. The Salem witch trials and executions turned out to be a land grab by the elite male ruling class stealing from unmarried women, the entire class of which they considered unworthy to own land. No small part of the Holocaust, and any genocide, is the mass stealing of the victims money, possessions and real property. The Japanese internment in the USA led to a mass cheap sale/giveaway of very attractive land in CA from Japanese Americans to White Americans. Hurricane Katrina basically turned into a land grab. See here too. Right now, now that we know more about Covid and how to slow its spread, Florida is the main target. Florida has not only been victim of its own questionable leadership and unreasonably right-wing political beliefs incited by decades of local hate radio, but also willingly or unwillingly hosts visitors some of whom have been entering the state to start or attend Covid parties. I’ve seen reports that these Covid partiers are terrorizing some of the senior citizen communities. What else do we know about Florida? It’s also about to lose a lot of oceanfront land to the sea, has lost some already. When Floridanians sicken, grow impoverished, or die en mass of Covid-19, they or their heirs will very likely be selling off lots of land cheap. Some of the land may even be abandoned. How convenient for the wealthy who can and want to scoop it up. Never underestimate the ability of the ruling elite to use a catastrophe to rob people blind. A lot of you won’t believe me now, so I’ll say it now for you to remember when we all see what happens, I told you so.
