Your New Normal Is…

by William Skink

There is a new propaganda term worming into our brains as I sit here like a good American in lockdown. This Missoula Current article even puts the term prominently in its headline about economic experts at UM helping small businesses navigate cons like the Paycheck Protection Program.

Paul Gladen, his team of “experts”, and corporate/financial talking heads from coast are going to be saying it over and over, so get ready, America, for your NEW NORMAL!!!

I do have some questions, though, for the experts. Here they are:

Does your new normal include accountability for Big Banks?
Does your new normal include auditing the Fed?
Does your new normal make housing a human right?
Does your new normal fix drinking water with lead?
Does your new normal stop tropical corporate tax shelters?
Does your new normal stop wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Sudan…?

OR…

Is your new normal about controlling people’s movements–
Is your new normal about controlling people’s thoughts–
Is your new normal about ramping up surveillance–
Is your new normal about 5G at whatever cost–
Is your new normal about maintaining oligarch status for Bezos–
Is your new normal about getting data-mined by Zuck–

because if this is your new normal, your new normal can go get fucked.
