Why go back?

I don't understand why so many people want things to go back to the way they were pre Covid. We did so many things wrong that are coming back to bite us in the ass. From storing the elderly in seniors homes like used auto parts to spending too much of our money on imported crap that we didn't really need, we have been living a very unsustainable and unhealthy way of life for too many years. My hope is that our future is far from the life we used to live and an opportunity to make meaningful and impactful changes to how we treat each other and our planet.

People just want to go back to being able to go outside and engage with other people. Thats what they mean when they want the virus to end..

care for their elderly family members for as long as they can. I was living and working in another country. My mom actually liked having lots of people her age to eat with and socialize with .

Cancel Chi-nah. Not their citizens. Their government.

I would take my own life before I was put in a seniors home. 80% of them are appalling. A hell on earth.

We got here because so many are led around by our noses by Madison Avenue (the advertising industry) and the American banking complex who have been giving away low interest loans for years. People are sheep, and will go along with the herd. Peer pressure is a powerful thing. It's not limited to children on a playground.

Belonging is a basic human need so when the establishment creates all these unnecessary wants and needs and tricks so many into thinking they need them, people will conform. If you think a post consumerist or post capitalist society is going to happen because of one pandemic after 60 years of programming a culture to do it, I hate to break the bad news to you, it won't happen.

The establishment will fight tooth and nail and use all the tricks in its arsenal to get people “back on track” but it doesn't mean YOU have to go back to the stupidity. Down-size, turn your TV off and be incredibly selective on how you access media. Simplify your lifestyle, care for another human being and try to ignore the sheeple. You're obviously ready because you're asking important questions.

I suspect though some recidivists may need to be officially pardoned from life to make it happen. Oh th...the smell.

require more care and medical support that can be given by someone who works long hours or shift work. Your comment that they are just stored somewhere is not correct. Most people love and support their older family members.

.. you know that seniors in care homes are now, in some cases, not allowed outside of their rooms, right? They're not allowed visitors.

I hate authoritarians.
