#WORLD #WORLDWIDE #UK #LONDON #ANARCHISM #News #Journal #Update - (en) London Anarchist Communist Group: THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC: CLASS WAR OR CULTURE WAR?

 What puzzles many is why there has been so much mixed messaging from the

government about the need for ways to stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus in
workplaces, educational institutions and other places where the public gathers.
The wearing of face coverings is a good example of this. (There is an excellent
article on face coverings on Wikipedia for those who want to be well informed:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Face_masks_during_the_COVID-19_pandemic). ---- At
the start of the Pandemic, there was a certain amount of controversy as to the
need for face coverings as a public health measure but as more and more evidence
from scientific research has become available, there is now general agreement
that face coverings are a good way for people to protect both themselves and
others from infection.

The use of face masks (or coverings in some cases) has been recommended by
American immunologist and NIAID director Anthony Fauci to reduce the risk of
contagion. He has also admitted that they were not recommended in 2020 and that
the delay in recommending general mask use was motivated by a desire to conserve
dwindling supplies for medical professionals. It was, therefore, for practical
reasons that wearing face masks was not made compulsory for the general public.

Now, though, the wearing of face masks seems to have become a "culture war"
issue, with the libertarian right stating that being mandated to wear face
coverings infringes upon civil liberties and individual freedom. The UK
Conservative government is controlled by the libertarian wing of the Conservative
Party and heavily influenced by the ideas of the extreme right in the USA. One
can see this in a photograph of Boris Johnson's Cabinet at a meeting in the
Cabinet Office where all of the members of cabinet are maskless in spite of them
being seated close together in a confined space:

Why an earth would the so-called leaders of a country which has had at least
135,000 people die from Covid-19 set such an irresponsible example? The answer is
to do with money. First, measures to reduce infection cost money and the
representatives of the ruling class does not want those whom they represent to
have to pay out any money unless it is in dividends to shareholders.

Second, the Conservative Party is only there to win elections and by winning
elections preserve the wealth of the boss class. The present leadership of the
Conservative Party seems to have decided that there are votes in culture war. It
thinks that there are working class votes in issues like encouraging the hatred
of foreigners, the waving of flags, criticising trade unions and anything which
might impinge on an individual's ?right' to do whatever they want, however petty,
like not wearing a face covering.

We do not go along with this way of thinking. We prefer an evidence-based
approach rather than one which is based on immature emotionalism. If you look at
the facts, they show that the Conservative Government is actually waging class
war on us. For example, the removal of the £20 Universal Credit "uplift" and the
increase in National Insurance contributions will extract wealth from the working
class in order to pay for a health crisis which the ruling class created through
its disastrous mismanagement of the pandemic. However, the most telling fact is
the death toll from Covid-19. The majority of those who have been killed by the
virus are working class, and the poorer you are, the more likely you are to be
killed by Covid-19. As The Guardian has pointed out, "Coronavirus has hit poorer
people harder."

The government appears to be treating the pandemic as an opportunity to wage
class war rather than as a public health issue. We see the pandemic as a public
health issue with a strong class war element. The pandemic has shown that under
capitalism, the working class is expendable and that wealth creation and
preservation for the ruling class is more important than the health of everybody.
