Coronavirus: Science or Not– Not Really a Choice

The paradox of this moment is that we’ve trained ourselves to be maximally selfish and catastrophically distrustful in the very eye of a health crisis that will be exponentially worse for all of us unless we can reinstate norms, reflexive selflessness, trust in science, and facts. This will be a strange kind of natural experiment in whether altruism and compassion are in fact irretrievably dead in America, and thus far, neither the federal government nor the right-wing media that exists to support it appears fully aware of the downsides.”

Medicynical note: Can a “leader” (sic) who never admits he’s made an error backtrack and allow those more expert to manage this growing disaster. And guess what, the primary concern at this time should be protecting citizens not bailing out the shale oil industry.
