Corona Virus Brings New Social Conventions
The world is changing, and fast, thanks to Corona Virus. As a result, we all have new social norms, or conventions, that have crept into our day-to-day lives. For some, adapting has been a big change, huge even. For others the change has been relatively minor. However, I think as time passes, we will see longer term changes, both to our routines, and to how we act/interact.
My goal here is to spark the thought in my readers minds (thank you, by the way!!!), and maybe get a wider range of notable changes from you all.
I see it around me
My day-to-day radius is a little west of where I live, If I travel about 10 miles west of my home that puts me in the middle of the 30 mile radius that I am in Monday through Friday. I rarely travel east of home, so I don't travel in a 40 mile radius.
I see the behavioral changes where I live, and I see them where I work. And not just behavior has changed, that's too general. How we perceive things is changing, social pressures have changed. Mores have been altered. Fear has been heightened.
In a previous article on corona virus in May, I expressed some doubt, followed by stats showing the potentially lethality of Covid. This was followed by an opinion that the whole "group think" fear mentality was, perhaps, a bad thing. That it was perhaps unnecessary. Were we giving up our rights without a fight? So easily?
