When the world stops turning
Listened while writing this post, try while reading it :o)
This post is the eighth of a series of ten posts about certain aspects of our lives during the COVID-19 crisis. These posts must be read in order, starting with the 6th post would make absolutely no sense to the reader. Enjoy reading and above all, enjoy reflecting.
But when the union forms an image of strength, a social network such as Facebook or Twitter can only give a distorted picture of the situation. Firstly, it is impossible to know whether people disagree with a situation or a decision given the absence of an “unlike” button. People can still comment to suggest a disagreement. Unfortunately, in the comments section, there are comments both for and against, so it is impossible to know the public opinion unless you read through the comments.
Reading these comments, it would take only a short time for an informed reader to see that the level of the interventions is not particularly deep and that anyone who tries to dive into them would inevitably break their neck. You could even say that walking on water would be possible without any illusion. In these waters, our elected officials must try to navigate, and against all expectations, they find themselves in a position of ultimate power, perhaps reminding the people that their vote may have more of an impact than it seems.
