I can’t help but wonder if, even after all of this is “over”, we are going to be polarized along the lines of the two camps of “covidiots” and “alarmists”.
No matter where you stand today, chances are the health impacts won’t be exactly what you think they’ll be. They’ll be either more severe or less severe.
Same goes for impacts on the economy–none of us are probably spot on at this point in our predictions of exactly what will happen.
And then there’s the a whole different discussion around the impact on civil liberties.
But as we sit down to eat Thanksgiving dinner with 20 other people this year (I’m betting that won’t happen until NEXT year), will there be an anger lurking under the surface for some of us?
Is one person going to be mad at another because they didn’t take this seriously enough and added to the problem?
Or because they were in the camp that wanted to lock everything down unnecessarily and crash the economy?
I’m out of the loop and isolated for the most part, but I don’t see this one breaking down on political lines.
Not the pre-virus political lines anyway.
