The Coronavirus Pandemic Is Coming for New Orleans – The Atlantic

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2020/03/coronavirus-pandemic-coming-new-orleans/608821/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=share

As my friend just noted, this doesn’t look good for Mississippi. I’m guessing Mississippi is going to make Louisiana look like merely a bad day. And I hope it wakes people up to the significance of this horrific income inequality and disparity in the quality of life in this stupid, ethically and philosophically bankrupt country. Vote for Bernie Sanders you f****** idiots! Medicare for all! And better late than never, because it’s going to happen eventually no matter how hard you try to fight it, you stupid, greedy f****.

Great conversation!!!!  🙂  Not exactly a debate, as framed in the title, but a good discussion of what’s going on economically and politically going into the primaries and election year.

Ex-UN chief Ban Ki-moon says US healthcare system is ‘morally wrong’

Ex-UN chief Ban Ki-moon says US healthcare system is ‘morally wrong’

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/sep/25/ex-un-chief-ban-kioon-says-us-healthcare-system-is-morally-wrong?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_WordPress

Kudos to Ban Ki-moon for having the courage to step forward and say something like this.

One thing I will question is why the rest of the Western world was seemingly so absent from public condemnations of events and policies in the USA that preceded or directly resulted in this situation. I do champion diplomacy and have the deepest respect for those who engage in it. However it is also necessary and healthy to be brave and principled enough to bite the hand that feeds you when the other hand is beating you or someone else. At some point you become complicit via inaction.

This references an article I wrote about previously:

Losing Earth: The Decade We Almost Stopped Climate Change – The New York Times

As Mr. Wolff points out, the New York Times continues its seemingly proud tradition, one it shares with plenty of other purveyors of truth, of stopping short of assigning blame where it is due and responsibly questioning the premises of this situation.

Any humane, compassionate, Christ-like society would not even be having this absurd conflict.
