At times the coronavirus seems like WWI in reverse with the global pandemic preceding the fighting.
At other times it seems like WWI in the normal direction.
The WHO seems like the secret treaties that dragged country after country into what should have been a small local squabble. Most in the west still haven’t figured out that the WHO (not a country but in a post nation-state world more or less the same kind of …. entity) had tied its fortune to China and will do or say anything it’s master wants.
I just haven’t figured out who the Gavrilo Princip and Franz Ferdinand are yet…
As they say, history doesn’t repeat but it surely rhymes (in free verse).
