The Indisputable Positives of this Pandemic

We started prioritizing people. For the first time, capitalism ground to a halt. When making money collided with the health of our fellow citizens, we ruthless capitalists pulled up. We allowed capitalism to be crippled by lockdown because it was BETTER for the people. While Americans may run from the word “socialism”, they are apparently quite socialist in their hearts. Both the Republican Trump administration and the Democratic Biden administration have opened the monetary spigots and literally sprayed trillions of dollars to keep our people healthy and economy primed for rebound. We have been reminded that we need each other to protect our shared interests. It has been like that since time immemorial.

We are Americans BEFORE we are Republicans or Democrats.
