It's hard to comment on this. Silence is consent. PhDs are Knobs. Brendan 1. PhDs 0.
Thanks Brendan. I'd like to know you're opinion - are we in the midst of mass hysteria? And how much further do you think it will run?
Great question. My view is that mass hysteria is a symptom not a cause.
So totally there is a full blown over-reaction, anxiety, catastrophizing, and also mass hysteria.
I tend to think it is because we are in the process of mass generational change. The baby boomers have controlled society for over 50 years now and change is happening.
Not only are they moving past working age, they are also facing the big question of death.
The ramifications of this is hUte.
2020 was the year that the boomers formally hit retirement. 2020 was a big year for them - turning a sneeze into a pandemic and an attempt to shift the world economy to be entirely focused on health. It’s no coincidence.
Big Pharma also has a massive opportunity to cash in. So there’s that too.
What I foresee is a transition and further fragmentation of society - think of the dying days of the Roman Empire.
One group dying out, and the seedlings of a new society.
A large well resourced groups - boomers - living the hysteria and trying to cope with life and death.
Another awake group - less resourced - that will choose to live differently. More carefree, less stressed and with different priorities (many boomers will be here too - so I’m speak sociologically and not about immutable characteristics based on age).
In lay terms, yes still a fair bit more BS to listen to for the next few years. However don’t buy into it, there‘s lots of good stuff happening too.
Makes sense. I think I've seen more 90+ year olds speak out against the hysteria than boomers have. And it's true that lots of good stuff is happening. Personally I take a lot of solace in permaculture.
Permaculture. Super cool!
