What is happening... Why is it happening...What is in the interests of humanity?

We urge you to read this very important article on the Coronavirus pandemic from http://www.revcom.us: https://revcom.us/a/637/thoughts-from-a-reader-on-the-coronavirus-en.html
Here are some issues to think about. And definitely bring your questions, concerns, and insights to the Thursday discussion!
1-What is the basic scientific understanding of Coronavirus COVID-19? What is a pandemic, why is this a real pandemic and not a hoax?
2- How does the capitalist system's drive for profit, the private control over resources, and competition between imperial powers stand in the way of meeting the needs of humanity?
3- How has the Trump/Pence fascist regime seriously aggravated the crisis?
4- How would this crisis be handled differently in a revolutionary and genuine socialist society?
5-What kinds of provocations, programs, debates and protests are needed in society? And how do we build up the strength of the movement for an actual revolution in this crisis?
