The media is hysterical about how society will change forever due to the the Covid-19 apocalypse.
This one imagines social distancing becoming permanent, that one blathers about how the economy will never recover.
I hear this stuff on the radio as it takes a few steps for me to shut it off or, due to my speed reading, I choke on a few lines before I can close the page closes on the computer.
The idea that anything will change society ‘forever’ is ridiculous. It never had, it never would.
Just about 50 years ago, there were protests all over the world. There were marches and rallies for equal rights. Streets were blocked with sit ins, pickets, and one might have assumed that people would take control. No longer would they be mindless sheep following a government, afraid to stand their ground.
Obviously, that didn’t happen.
Americans, for example is as oblivious to reality as they were in the 1950s. If their government told them something they never questioned it. The Same as today in 2020.
This plague of Corona Virus will pass through, leave memories, and people will return to the status quo ante.
And those who are too young to grasp the facts, or born after 2020 won’t even know it happened.
