It’s bracing to discover on the day’s major issue you stand shivering among the exposed minority. And, when it comes to big issues, there’s never been one in human history — not even involving world wars — as the global response to this ongoing pandemic. Maybe that’s because we’re so interconnected nowadays, or perhaps we just aren’t used to dealing with sick people anymore. So, with such pandemic bombardment, it’s surprising any other Calgarian feels similarly about this current situation — believing our collective response is more worrisome than the actual virus. Why then stick with such an unpopular viewpoint? it’s because politicians cannot help but pass more laws for the apparent good of those they represent and, once the citizenry is fearful enough, this new-rules rush goes into overdrive.
