It's not a joke. It has been seriously harmed by cut-backs by money-seeking corporate-invaded governments.
Regulatory capture is poison to social welfare and democracy.
Not only have we catastrophically neglected our health care, we have done the same to education, sewers and waterworks, roads and bridges, etc. We have also destroyed our social networks with mass media, suburban sprawl, and subservience to corporate rule. All of these damages to the collective have benefitted the oligarch classes.
And all the "saved" money is in tax shelters, waiting for electric yachts and space trips to go on sale.

LONDON -- Face masks will no longer be mandatory in public places and schools in England and COVID-19 passports will be dropped for large events as infections level off in large parts of the country, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Wednesday.
Johnson told lawmakers that the restrictions were being eased because government scientists believed it was likely that the surge of infections prompted by the highly contagious Omicron variant "has now peaked nationally." ...
So Boris, after being repeatedly caught in Covid parties with no masks or distancing and a big smile on his face, admits through policy
, that it was all a scam anyways. And he should know - he's an insider. Perhaps he didn't protect himself because... he knew it was all fake. He was just doing what his corporate bosses told him to do.Lobbyists are a visionless politicians best friend.
But as one psy-ops ends, we should all expect another one.
The people have shown that they will believe anything that commercial media says.
(Incidentally, virtually no Canadian commercial media has covered this landmark "England ends COVID measures" story. I wonder if this is because Pfizer won't let them. **pays for subscription to media website for the first time**)
