In what ways are you seeing racism as a result of this? You being near Vancouver I'd be curious.

The Group-Think here is growing exponentially. Scaring me way worse than the flu to be honest. Online I am seeing increased praising and virtue-signalling about who can social distance the best, and public shaming of folks who 'aren't taking it seriously enough'. LinkedIn is terrifying, everyone trying to promote their brand by showing how well they are complying with the panic. I'm having a hard time staying professional and not getting into debates with my clients, lol but its hard. I am not seeing much critical thinking anywhere, people almost boasting how much of a lack of critical thinking they are exercising, lol

I tell you, a high percentage of the people here would cut their own hand off, if the TV and governments told them to.

We are actually living in a total Orwellian lock-down.
Good morning.

^^ I don't think its that far-fetched to be honest

We're inching closer to this sort of rhetoric imo

Good morning.

I'm just talking about Trump and other American politicians like that governor from Texas, not so much Vancouver.

I'm pretty disgusted with it all.

Do you think we will see the end of the handshake as a social gesture?

Will the west start bowing to people instead after this, or some other replacement etiquette introduced that doesn’t involve touching anyone?

Let’s make predictions of lasting cultural changes that might continue after this is forgotten :)

Not if they get called a pussy by their new friend often enough.



It's a big red (black?)pill opportunity when people openly display their ignorance like this. How best to approach it is up for debate.
