As we look back at the events since late December 2019, we realize the Trump administration's mistakes. The warnings were there for all to see. However, the Trump administration chose not to hear them. Surely, the Covid19 pandemic will change the world because it isn't the last pandemic, only the first. Global capitalism changed the world in profound ways. While it brought prosperity in many parts of the world, it created a new interconnectedness, never seen before. The highly globalized world made the pandemic possible. We can expect more, surely. Meanwhile, act decisively and with greater urgency. Employ the full force of the government, including the incredible military machine. It bears repetition only because it isn't being done, even now.
Perhaps, I suspect if they knew (really knew) what is at stake they would be more careful Laziness does not cover it, just look at the hoops they go through because of universal precautions. It is a pain to deal with the gloves, the needles, etc. And yet they do it as they understand the consequences. Why can't we extend that same level of understanding to their computing behavior.
Nuance Transcription started layoffs today and it was done very poorly! No notice whatsoever so can prepare!
