Singapore government sends masks to everyone. Why can’t the USA do the same for everyone in the USA beginning with everyone employed and having to travel to speed up an economic recovery as well as a reduction in the spread of virus?
If we want to buy N95 material to make a COVID-19 facemask of our own in the middle of a pandemic, the USA sources cannot deliver this year or the supplier will turn away your order, Why?
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb to answer why.
“Thus, I hated all the fruit of my labor for which I had labored under the sun, for I must leave it to the man who will come after me. And who knows whether he will be a wise man or a fool? Yet he will have control over all the fruit of my labor for which I have labored by acting wisely under the sun. This too is vanity, (Ecclesiastes 2:18-19)
(8) “But he forsook the counsel of the elders which they had given him, and consulted with the young men who grew up with him and served him.”(1 Kings 12:8)
What’s My Point?
The present coronavirus pandemic crisis is an example of how in the USA contemporary times has become a repeat performance of the same folly and experience of what King Solomon observed 3000 years ago.
My point is we voters will want to repeat to choose the same foolish leaders who refused to listen to counsel and instead followed the foolish counsel of outsourcing USA manufacturing capabilities in the belief that a service economy based on globalism was wiser choice for the American Economy.
In My Opinion
Being one of many of the counselors who has been attempting to warn about the sad experience is not rewarding, rather it is very frustrating.
Namely the USA is currently not being able to obtain enough protective N95 face masks and protective apparel because 90 percent of the machinery to provide is located 8000 miles away and being allocated for the Nations like Singapore to use during the pandemic.
What is even more sad and frustrating is listening to news media and politicians who are presently blaming President Trump who has been trying during his term to correct the service economy open borders folly.
In addition is having to listen to the same politicians now supporting their current choices of Presidential Candidate who was the Vice President to President Obama and other supporters who did not listen to the counsel and promoted a service economy and even open borders.
Read the Source Links below which explain the why.
Will this sad, frustrating experience hopeful change the course of the USA in the future, or will the USA news media, voters, a politician’s support, choose, and elect another leader who refuses to listen to wise counsel?
Why is it every generation repeats the same follies of previous generations as has been evidenced in history, same as King Solomon warned in the above Ecclesiastes verse?
