If the rich created what exactly? Covid-19? They didn't!
But they helped spread the infection as tourists, bar owners and local authorities catering to business interests at the beginning of the pandemic (see OP!) and later on as employers, who let people work and live under conditions that help spread the virus among (primarily) poor people. The conditions of meatpackers in the John Oliver video mentioned in post 597 are grotesque - with or without Covid-19!
"Stupidity renders itself invisible by assuming very large proportions. Completely unreasonable claims are irrefutable. Ni-en-leh pointed out that a philosopher might get into trouble by claiming that two times two makes five, but he does not risk much by claiming that two times two makes shoe polish." B. Brecht
"The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness. The demand to give up the illusion about its condition is the demand to give up a condition which needs illusions." K. Marx
