We actually have TWO pandemics running. A virus, and a first-of-its-kind social pandemic. Like most new epidemics, a lack of resistance makes it very dangerous.

Global social media, amplified by algos optimizing for engagement, make it spread like crazy. Lockdown slowed the virus but amplified these effects.

The result is skewed decision making, resulting in self-destructive behavior. Please consider a two-week "lock down" break from social media.
