Every time a substitution has been attempted, the leading imperialist state at the time, be it England or the USA, is doing its utmost to get rid of it instead of letting 'people' do what they wanted. Much like Sweden trying to force its neo-liberal approach to the pandemic onto its neighbors. (Just a reminder that this is the thread about capitalism & Covid.)
"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
