At least during the past, before the internet and online ordering, when the breadlines formed and basic supplies became limited you could *see* those breadlines forming, photograph them, and document them in this way.
Today, under late-stage capitalism and all it has wrought, the ‘breadlines’ are virtual since most people order online and enjoy, lol, “free shipping” because of a gargantuan monopoly that has occurred there, forcing other companies to also offer “free” or similar shipping.
Couple that with an intentionally mishandled viral pandemic, where people were ORDERED to stay inside (and not vote, or think about the economic looting), and the breadlines that formed for basic supplies stretched on in the thousands, but who saw them?
Nobody but the analytics department at your favorite online mega-brand retailer, and that analytics department would *never* damage the brand by admitting the huge queues, delays, and problems with online shipping that are occurring as we speak.
In America, the breadlines are virtual and nobody can see them, meanwhile we ceaselessly attack more social economies around the world as leading to “breadlines”, which of course happens there after the US and its allies have CAUSED them.
Can’t hide those righteous uprisings in the streets, though, nor can you hide the fact that most of the population supports them. #GeneralAction always, until #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd and the abolishment of these militarized, occupying police forces on our streets! NO JUSTICE? NO PEACE!
