“Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” — Galatians 6:7, King James Version
In an earlier article, I explained that the euthanasia of America’s proprietor class did not bode well for political moderation this election cycle and so far extremism has indeed carried the conversation.
Since then, I’ve been musing about why “Big Business” did not clamor for a quick end to lockdowns and “mostly peaceful” protests. Indubitably, some big corporations benefited from bailouts and being labelled “essential” businesses. Some think Democrats will give them even more cash. A few probably relished the opportunity to blame the Covid catastrophe for “restructurings” that would have been necessary sooner or later anyway.
