It seems that crises such as this one either drive us apart (e.g. the Syrian civil war) or bring us together (e.g. World War II).As a life-long critic of homo sapiens generally, I am somewhat surprised and gratified that Covid 19 has brought us so close to each other. Of course, to those locked up inside with families this can literally be too much of a good thing, but I’m thinking more of society in general. People are doing things for each other that they have never done before – for example, calling frequently just to check in, or asking if they can help with shopping. There may be hope for us yet.
