Ideology does nothing but rot from the inside out, and ideology is always waiting, an easy grab for intellectually-lazy, ego addicts with weak hearts and petty emotions.

There will be a cull favoring the businesses that can easily afford to survive this mess (the big chains). Many of those will be fine. But the rest will ha...
