When there’s no ene­my to blame

Lis­te­ned while wri­ting this post, try while rea­ding it :o)

These words are taken from the lyrics of a song by the band NOFX. Let’s see why I’ve cho­sen them. Fish in a Gun Bar­rel is a song that talks about firearms and shoo­tings. The refe­rences main­ly echo in the Uni­ted States. Howe­ver, I thought that the men­tal health theme that is tou­ched on in the song («How cra­zy he was», «His brain had a lesion», «Hap­py pills», «Luna­tics»), tied in well with today’s tag.

As for the phrase in the intro, let’s remem­ber that it is in our tri­bal nature to unite for a cause, and this stron­gly nou­rishes our need for affi­lia­tion and that the ene­my to blame is this dread­ful virus. In our context, eve­ryone plays a role and our favou­rite sports team is repla­ced by our dedi­ca­ted poli­ti­cians, who take care of our eco­no­my, and micro­bio­lo­gists, who are des­pe­ra­te­ly trying to find the best wea­pon to era­di­cate this threat to humanity.

Our strength over the last few days is explai­ned by the words of NOFX when they say: Why do we have a hard time. When there’s no ene­my to blame. It’s worth thin­king about and some­times even ana­ly­sing song lyrics. :o)
