This latest blog on the Corona Virus is not about the medical history of the virus. Nor whether or not the virus has been deliberately created in a laboratory. This blog is my personal observations of the affects that the Corona Virus is having on British society.

My personal view is that the affects of the virus on British society is largely negative. In my local supermarket in North London customers tend to see each other as rivals for scarce goods. Also my heart goes out for the under pressure low paid supermarket staff trying to deal with customers pressures over shortages of goods which they have no control over.

Another negative factor is that a minority section of the population has been taken in by anti Chinese racism. Blaming the growth of the virus on Chinese people.’They eat live bats’. This is pathetic.

A small percentage of the population may join self help groups to help the vulnerable. But alas in this largely impersonal neo liberal society I largely detect a dog eat dog survival of the fittest mentality.

Another negative affect is the closing down of political activity, with meeting and demonstrations being banned during the Corona crisis. So political resistance is now suspended. Of course this is very convenient for the ruling elite.

I do not know what will be the final outcome of the Corona Virus tragedy or how long it will last for. Alas I suspect that the outcome will not be good for the masses. With a much more controlled technocratic society. Perhaps with more tighter restrictions on political meetings and demonstrations. Thus curbing political resistance to the corporate globalists.

Also I expect a big increase in tensions between China and the western powers as a result of the Corona Virus crisis. Alas I expect the same will apply to Russia.

As an anti globalist socialist. I am to be quite blunt very worried and depressed about the after affects of the Corona crisis. Let us hope that there is some silver lining. Try not to give up hope and keep on fighting for peace and justice if it is only on line at the present time.

Best wishes to all for the future.
