Demagogues’ indefensible business-as-usual practices

Demagogues rarely care about anything / anybody other than their own wealth and power, especially when the sh1t is in somebody else’s backyard.  But once there’s a stark choice between untenable causalities and economic catastrophe in their circle of influence, it’s a ‘big problem’.

I hope our world leaders recognise global fragility and the perils of placing self-interest ahead of the bigger picture as a result of today’s crisis, but I doubt it.  Unfortunately.  Once the wheels of commerce start turning again and the masses are readily accepting to be manipulated once more, this will all be forgotten.  And indefensible business-as-usual practices will continue.
