I had used to associate “corona” with beer or the sun. I have recently traded in those associations with Covid19. I could of course wax on about being locked down for six months as of this writing, or tracking graphs, arguing with epidemiologists, speaking, with daily updates, to colleagues who know a whole lot more than I about infectious diseases. However, my overriding state of being has been to stare aghast at the television screen listening to world leaders arguing science and life in business terms and market fluctuations, all the while staring in disbelief at pundits who value economy and yes, liberty too over human life. This is not to say that economics and liberty are not important. However, with all the politicking in the USA of Roe V. Wade (1) and its fallout over a generation (2). I question how people who purportedly value life would disappear social distancing because it smells like big government restricting personal liberties. How proponents of either States v. Federal rights arguments in the USA are eloquently and busily making their points known while all the while the death toll increases (3).
