Coronavirus, kill for capitalism, Murdoch media say


This 16 March 2020 video from the USA says about itself:

Washington crisis response is already picking Wall Street over workers

Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti discuss what Washington should do to address the financial fallout from the coronavirus.

From the (conservative) Daily Mail in Britain, 5 April 2020:

Former Supreme Court Justice Jonathon Sumption believes that the public’s ‘irrational horror of death’ has lead to unnecessarily ‘costly’ measures surrounding coronavirus.

Writing in The Sunday Times

owned by Rupert Murdoch

Lord Sumption, 71, a former judge turned author and medieval historian, stated that the strict governmental measures will bring ‘even greater misfortunes of a different kind’.

He wrote: ‘We have acquired an irrational horror of death. Today death is the great obscenity, inevitable but somehow unnatural. In the midst of life, our ancestors lived with death, an everpresent fact that they understood and accommodated.’

Lord Sumption projects his own cavalier contempt for human lives, at least the lives of ‘proles‘, unto all people in history. While that contempt was mainly by tyrannical princes and their lackeys.

Today, Lord Sumption’s contempt for human lives was praised by the United States neo-nazi site Daily Stormer.

I much prefer to Lord Sumption these lines of 20th century Welsh poet Dylan Thomas:

Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

All human lives are so much more precious than billionaires’ profits. They are worth fighting for.

The Daily Mail article continues:

Lord Sumption went on to list a number of historic epidemics such as bubonic plague,

The medieval plague, far from people ‘understanding’ it, as Lord Sumption claims, was a pretext for mass murder of Jews who supposedly had been to blame.

Does Lord Sumption see the possibility of the coronavirus crisis increasing anti-Semitism? Anti-Semitism, supported by His Lordship’s boss Rupert Murdoch, and by Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News? While these coronavirus times see the promotion of anti-Asian racism by Sumption’s Rupert Murdoch media; and by United States president Donald Trump.

smallpox, cholera, typhoid, meningitis and Spanish flu, reminding people that such outbreaks with higher mortality rates were met with less ‘hysteria’. …

The former judge believes it is the public’s ‘risk-adverse’ attitude which has lead us to not accept ‘the wheel of fortune’.

‘Wheel of fortune’? No, the consequences of years of privatization and austerity in healthcare, and of an economic system destroying biodiversity and the environment, you idiot Lordship!

Lord Sumption said current government measures are inflicting suffering on other less obvious victims of the coronavirus, such as future generations who will be left to deal with ‘high levels of public and private debt’ …

So, Lord Sumption prefers millions of people dying to the ultimate ‘horror’ of Big Banking and similar creditors maybe not getting back their loans plus interest profit from debtors.

Lord Sumption and his Rupert Murdoch media bosses want people to die for Big Business; like Donald Trump in the USA and Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil.
