That phrase drives me bonkers. We're not really in "this" together, are we? If your business dies because of the lockdowns, you're on your own. If your neighborhood gets torched by Vandals of Color, you're on your own. If part of your state goes up in flames because environmentalists prevented preventative forestry, you're on your own.
As a matter of fact, you're on your own in almost everything. That's just life.
Instead, I feel like we're fed a constant stream of sheepdog barking, designed to keep us in the herd and obedient to our "leaders." All of the barking - climate barking, Chicom Flu barking, racial injustice barking - it's all meant to create a set of enemies, some human, some not, against whom we must band together.
Climate change is coming from China. They emit a huge and rapidly growing portion of global CO2.
The Wuhan flu is dangerous only at very close ranges. Masks outside are pointless.
Racial injustice is simply nonsense. It's paranoia aimed at a specific demographic, built from the terror that some of them had begun to stray.
We're being herded for nothing.
Nah. This is not for me.
