Day 6 – Total confirmed cases in US: 19,624
Does anyone else hear the rumbling regurgitation bubbling up from the bowels of hell? No? Me neither.
This virus did not come from hell but from our own dear mother, nature. We have not been very kind to our mother. She deserves a lot better after all she’s done for us. Maybe this is her revenge for burning down her rainforests and killing her coral reefs.
One of the fundamental philosophical disagreements between our divided cultures is on the question of whether or not people are inherently good. Some people believe that we lost our inherent goodness the minute Eve bit into the apple. Some people believe the world is too evil for us to escape its corruption. I believe we are going to see some of the best and worst of humanity over the coming weeks and the number of people who are going to surprise themselves with their compassion and strength is going to far outweigh the number who think of themselves first.
If one of the consequences of the virus is a realization of the inherent goodness of people, with subsequent re-ordering of society in a more loving direction, it might be worth the cost.
