@sebastianjunger⁩ puts words to a lot of my feelings on reactions to the pandemic. “The idea that we can enjoy the benefits of society while owing nothing in return, not even a minor sacrifice, is literally infantile. Only children owe nothing.”

Well, the idea is to sell us everything we need through layers of middlemen so we don't need anyone else. Divide and conquer writ large via extremist neoliberalism.

That's why we see all these tough-guy wannabes and rugged individualist posers - short of combat or seriously eff'd up life experiences folks don't get the opportunity to test themselves to their limit and figure out how much help they need from their neighbors.
