The refusal to reopen schools is a punishment to lower classes for procreating.
I’m not fretting about this on my own behalf like people keep assuming. Daycares are open but if they close, I can always go back to pretending to teach at full pay (like I did in the spring).
There is a class war going on and it’s ferocious. The working classes are an object of an intense, all-consuming hatred for the upper-middle-class people.
