The COVID-19 situation has finally proven without a shadow of a doubt that we are utterly unequipped as a species to handle any major catastrophe that could befall our planet. The current outbreak isn’t even that bad in the grand scheme of things (of course you can’t actually say that because people are dying, but let’s be realistic) so imagine what would happen if a truly deadly disease swept across the globe. We’d be done for.
Similarly, we should abandon all magical thinking about mankind pulling together to sort out climate change. We’re simply too selfish and lazy. We will wait until it becomes impossible to ignore and by then, much like with our viral friend here, it will be too late to plan.
So enjoy yourselves, my friends. Stop trying to shoulder the burden of humanity on your own. If nobody else cares, why should you?
There’s some good stuff on Netflix right now.
In other news, if this outbreak goes on much longer (which it will), my batshit crazy paranoid mother will drive me literally insane.
