The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion … but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.

My work released it's coronavirus guidance today, followed by two "clarifications".

I should work from home if possible, but also come in as normal, and come in unless I've got a preexisting health condition, more remote login cards are available, we don't have enough, we should ask for them, our manager should, and also we shouldn't ask at all and we should wait until Wednesday when they meet the infrastructure provider.

Everything clear? Good.
