You’re right that some of the people and political factions who’re talking about this are awful and with bad intentions. It’s also true that they lack a nuanced structural analysis (of capital, the state, and so on).

And finally, I agree with you that this latest grasping for power, as such, by technocrats, isn’t exactly new... but what’s significant about TGR imo is the way the pandemic is being used to accelerate trends and trajectories that have been in motion for a long time. This sudden exponential acceleration and deepening of misery is extremely alarming and is bringing in its train forms of social control that 1 year ago would’ve been UNTHINKABLE.

That’s all.

for real, check out that latest issue of 325.
