ArtículosCOVID has sped up globalism

diciembre 18, 2020by admin

The Economist, on December 3, published an article in which echoing a series of studies on how the pandemic was affecting workers, employees and managers in companies, they concluded that “if employees work remotely and no longer go to live in big, expensive cities, companies need not pay them as much“.

In mid-March, European Member States agreed to take measures that included shutting the borders, limiting peoples movement and encouraging them to work from home, in accordance with their constitutional rules – except for Spain, where the government adopted a state of emergency disguised as a public health issue in clear breach of constitutional law. These measures were all the response to COVID-19.

Instead of questioning the role of Communist China for the worldwide spread of the coronavirus or asking ourselves how fragile our democratic systems are, or even reflecting deeply on the profound origin of the pandemic and its rapid spread, the response of the establishment has been to take advantage of the situation to speed up the implementation of their objectives: the imposition world view of man without an identity, without roots, without genuine human relations; and the dissolution of national identity where those who govern are not elected by the people and cannot be removed by them. Of course, the European Union is in the vanguard of this movement to redraw the lines of society.

Under the umbrella of the “digitalization” of production processes, the establishment is speeding up. The situation is ideal: confinements, closures of sectors of activity, limitations to urban mobility, and the health crisis spread by government and international agencies draw a landscape in which small businesses are wiped out by the large logistics and internet-based multinationals in such a way that thousands of small owners, owners of their businesses, their time and their risk, are replaced en masse and at a speed that was unsuspected just twelve months ago by a multitude of temporary workers serving globalist multinationals.

At the same time, in hundreds of thousands of companies, teleworking is being imposed by the state. It is not a decision taken by the employer of his own free will or by the employer and his workers in the common interest in response to a need for the service, or a need of the client; but a coercive imposition by the public authorities, which limits capacity, prohibits travel, or directly limits economic freedom in certain sectors.

With teleworking, workers lose all contact with reality, all truly human relationships – personal and physical- with their company, their colleagues, customers, suppliers; with the waiter who served them the first coffee in the morning or the one who attended to them at lunchtime. The teleworker is limited to being a subject that produces; raw, uprooted. In this teleworker there is no longer any solidarity or companionship, nor can there be, because he has been encapsulated in a contact-free health area. It is pure productivity.

Local or regional governments insist on their campaigns. Don’t have contact with people. Don’t go out. Don’t hug. Don’t shake hands with anyone. Restrict your contacts, even within the family.

The scenario is Dantean: millions of Europeans have gone straight to unemployment. The fall in the GDP of Western countries takes us back to the time of the Second World War. Hundreds of thousands more (small owners in the leisure, tourism, hotel and retail sectors) are being replaced by an army of temporary workers – drowned in Europe by growing immigration pressure – for multinational companies that are transferring their profits and taxes to their headquarters in third countries.

Hundreds of thousands of other workers have joined the list of “teleworkers”, locked up in their homes, with no contact with reality, in that diabolical and perverse wheel of working from 9 to 9, 6 days a week, consuming television or internet as a means of “escape”; that is, escaping from the virtual, with more virtuality.

And all of this is imposed by the elites with the categorical force of an immovable physical law. The health excuse is perfect: if you don’t do it, you’re out of the market. If you do not accept the new rules, you can even be branded as a denier. And there is nothing good in all this. And there is no inexorable law that imposes that on us as an absolute, neither divine nor human. It is the law of the globalist multinationals and of the elites who want us to be abhorred: no personal life, no human relations, virtual sex, love packaged in an app, food at home because you have to keep producing, all the time. Don’t move from home, we’ll bring it to you.

And on top of that, the elites conclude that since the teleworker is at home and doesn’t spend money on journeys and no longer wants to live inside the city in a 40-square-metre flat suffocating, he has to charge less. It has not occurred to them that since the company saves on rent, mortgage loans or supplies at the headquarters, perhaps the opposite is true: improving remuneration so that workers can leave home, and have the physical and sentimental relationships that make them regain that sense of being human. This has not occurred to them. Because then that teleworker will already have other priorities: his family, his security, his freedom, his country.
