1. Pandemic Ghost Towns

These short clips provide a glimpse on how a Black Death plague could reshape our cities. The alternative of the residents not being dead but merely pausing to prevent high tsunami-like waves of fast contamination is clearly preferable (even though our planet is overpopulated – but painful near-extinction is not a desirable cure). Fairly easy to handle, actually, except that the predatory principle of our capitalist system made it hard and abusive for many.

But let’s take a look at these clips from the U.S. and around the world:
