Keep moving

Keep the economy burning, keep it moving, keep money moving from account to account, keep moving resources around to be burned up, keep the people moving around and crossing each others' paths, keep everything moving so that the economy keeps moving, don't stop moving to keep a virus from moving, keep producing produce, keep producing waste, keep producing carbon dioxide to produce produce and products and waste, keep everything moving even when so many people are dying – and that is the link to climate catastrophe, which also follows from an economy that always has to keep everything in motion, people, produce, resources, fossil-fuel vehicles, even when a virus is moving, too. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 9 May)
