Subject: That's so frustrating...

I'd be pretty livid. First of all, I hope you're OK. And it's just a precaution. Cause unlike some people, you're actually being responsible by isolating.

I think a lot of these people are selfish. The type of people who, even before Covid, don't think twice about coughing without covering their mouths, when they have a general cold. And they're everywhere too. They couldn't give a shit if you get the nasty cold they've just had for several days.

I know it's got super political in the US, like, if you wear a mask you're almost a Democrat. And if you don't, you're almost a Trump supporter. It's bad in the UK too, as it probably is in most places, Canada included.

Why are people so fucking selfish and conspiracy prone these days? It has to be social media. There's always been a few conspiracy nuts around, but these days it feels like people who don't believe in at least one stupid, unproven conspiracy, are in the minority. Like we live in a post-truth society. Whatever appeals to you, just believe and who cares how ridiculous and unsupported it is.

A lot of people in my circle actually believe that the Chinese deliberately created this virus and released it to harm the rest of the world. Despite it affecting the global economy, including their own. Despite biologists being easily able to tell a natural virus from an artificial creation.

And it's even worse than that, because of people like them, Chinese people living elsewhere in the world are encountering an insane amount of racism these days. Like they're all fucking in on it too. It's so stupid.

Their latest theory is that planes (via chemtrails) were releasing the virus over head. No evidence of course, but they just read this shit on a facebook post and now all of a sudden it becomes quite probable.

It's the same with pizza gate and Qanon, not with my own close family, but with a lot of people, this sort of nonsense gave rise to Trumpism and Brexit, etc. It's sad to see it all happening to society.

Anyway, I hope you stay well and healthy, TB (hugs)
