Thruout the Irish Potato Famine, landlords routinely shipped food out of the country. During COVID19

....Trump's federal government continues to allow (and frankly encourage, by their behavior and words) mask-manufacturers to sell their product overseas to the highest bidder. Did Rachel really just say 210 million?

Wrong revolution, but I am in the mood for a guillotine.

4. The lessons of history are important.

Money was more important to the English landlords than the Irish farmers working their land. Today, money and re-election are more important to Trump and his cult members than the lives of the rest of us.

The difference is that the Irish could flee to the US and Australia. We have no where to go.
