Yeah as this video shows if everyone is happy, healthy, and creative in their isolation everything will be fine, right? right? RIGHT!?
It's not like humans (social creatures) are facing an unprecedented event of isolation. Many of which don't know what to do with them selves. There has already been a massive increase in both suicides and people asking for psychological assistance.
It's not like people have pre existing health and mental conditions which can no longer be cared for effectively.
It's not like most people have a delicate balancing act of work and income which has now been obliterated.
It's not like there are still people and children in tense to abusive relations with no way of escaping now.
It's not like foreign students are being laid off and told by the Prime Minister to go home mid-semester, many to countries where they cannot access their university's website and thus their resources, online classes and tools.
It's not like there are poor and homeless people being deprived of essential supplies by high and middle class people panic buying unnecessarily.
It's not like there has been a large spike in racism towards anyone vaguely east asian.
It's not like America is currently trying to pass an anti-encryption law.
It's not like a fascist dictator has been declared for Hungary because the elections were suspended. He immediately turned around and removed rights for trans people.
It's not like there is a relief hospital set up in NY square by a religious group that have their volunteers sign a "statement of faith" which says that LGBT+ people are fake and are going to burn in hell.
It's not like the state of Idaho just signed off on two anti-transgender bills.
It's not like those trying to help are receiving death threats, having rocks thrown at them, or have a deranged train engineer try to launch a train at a relief ship.
Do you not get it? Everything is on the line at the moment, everything is in suspense. You can run with your idea that it's the media's fault for agitating people, or aggravating them into buying toilet paper. I don't give a S#&$.
By the end of this; people will have lost homes many have already lost jobs, there will be children under educated, some people may no longer have the right to exist where they are, and many will be dead not just from the virus.
So I am sorry. It is a stressful situation for everyone and we should be trying to support each other. I don't need someone running around going; 'IT'S THE MEDIA AND NON CHILL PEOPLE AT FAULT'. People are stressed, a lot are at risk, telling people to just chill won't help. You need to talk, be supportive, and try to understand what they are going through.
