Diary of a Plague Year

Bureaucrats — the experts — have adopted a pseudo-rational one variable
logic that completely ignores the qualitative impacts of staying at home staying at home, social distancing, wearing masks, general panic; we have ignored the emotional transformation we have undergone. We have ignored the consequences of re-conceiving of ourselves as disease vectors — of the stranger, the other, as a asymptomatic spreader: a kind of mythical monster… a thing, an alien. There are consequences of this hyper risk aversion, this irrational rationalism: the fabric of the human and human society is warped beyond recognition.
