Santiago de Chile. Chile. On Friday, March 27, 2020, the High Security Prison indefinitely suspends visits and parcels, effectively leaving the various prisoners who are hostages of the State completely isolated. We cannot understand these measures differently than another repressive action, that far from seeking a “quarantine” or sanitary measures, leaves our comrades imprisoned at the mercy of their jailers without the possibility of communication or an income of basic needs for hygiene and subsistence.Continue reading #Chile – Complete isolation in the High Security Prison in times of the #coronavirus in Santiago de Chile

The run on toilet paper has brought the failings of capitalism front and center to the bathroom of every house across Australia, a trend that has now spread to other countries. We are witnessing, in real-time and with stunning consequence, the stone-cold fact that markets are an ineffective mediator of resources, prone to the worst vagaries of herd mentality.

We might be inclined to laugh at the implausibility of the whole scenario, but whether the situation is real or imagined is beside the point.
