Us and Ours

A Florida official on TV is telling of the shock he experienced when he found out that capital no longer has any national attachments. He’s trying to buy PPEs for US healthcare workers and discovering that US companies prefer to export them because it’s more profitable.

“But our people need them!” the official exclaims. “How can you? It’s for us!”

At least, he’s noticing the contradiction. There are gigantic crowds of people who simultaneously chant “babies in cages” and pout that “our government” doesn’t do enough to protect “us” from the pandemic.

We’ve spent so much time concentrating on pronouns. Just not the ones that actually matter.
