Covid-19 has taken away bread and circuses,
laying bare the true American empire

Regular Americans can no longer numb themselves
with sports and gluttony, freeing them to
clearly see the malignantly craven ruling class
that exploits and despises them. If only they
would open their eyes to reality.
Anyone who has eyes to see can clearly make
out that America is an addled empire in steep
decline that is firmly entrenched in its
bread-and-circuses stage. This has been brought
into clear focus due to Covid-19. Since there is
now a shortage of bread, as supermarket shelves
are bare, and the distraction of the circus of
sports has been indefinitely removed from the
culture, Americans are left with little to
distract them from cold, hard reality.
With no brawls or ballgames to watch, and the
fear of potential hunger gnawing at their bloated
bellies and brains, and with social distancing
leaving them isolated with little but their thoughts
as company, Americans will now find it harder and
harder to ignore the truth about their country and
its deplorably corrupt media, financial, government,
education and health care systems, that is staring
them in the face.
As the old adage goes, crisis reveals character,
and the coronavirus contagion is a crisis of epic
proportions that is revealing America to be utterly
devoid of any redeeming character whatsoever.
