Is This Becoming a General Strike?

“Did the Biden administration really imagine that it could outright force its way into the bloodstream of every American, simply by demanding it in a press conference? … people are finding each other, coming together (despite so many attempts to keep people apart and censor accounts) and starting to act. It feels like the birth of a general strike. This phrase has mostly pertained to socialist or anti-capitalist movements in the past. This time it is different. This is happening not for a socialist revolution as the fevered imaginations of communism once predicted, nor by the owners of capital on behalf of their rights, as Ayn Rand cleverly reconstructed the old Hegelian forecast. Instead it is by the lockdown-abused workers — nurses, pilots, air traffic controllers, mechanics, teachers, city and federal employees, technicians of all types — on behalf of their bodily autonomy and their freedom to choose.” (10/13/21)
