The nerves of the world seem to be shattered. Depression afflicts hundreds of millions of people around the globe. And everyone is looking out only for themselves. How to make it through the day. How to make ends meet.
People are behaving as if it is the last day of their lives – and as if no one else counted, treating others that way.
Has that always been the case? No, it has not. There were always rude people, but they provoked the outcry of others against them. And yet, they did not reach the current scale and level of vulgarity.
You find it in many places. On the trains and on the roads we drive on. Even among acquaintances.
The worst ‘place’ is on social media. For example: lots of people go on Facebook and other platforms looking for excuses to spew venom and bile. They curse in vulgar fashion, blaming people for anything and everything.
They attack other people and their ideas, hiding behind some idea of freedom of the press.
What they write reflects the misery, the difficult psychological state in which everyone finds themselves.
The day will soon come when governments will want to bring order to this situation. And, indeed, some order must be restored.
The fear however, is that they will do it for their own reasons and interests, imposing conditions that will serve them and not the people, like China, Turkey, and other countries that are already doing it.
That is, they will impose censorship on social media to protect their governments. In order to calm people down. To return to a more tranquil psychological state, and therefore to a more temperate society so that we can face the serious problems that concern us, such as the coronavirus, the financial situation, the general uncertainty that lingers in the world.
Until then, when you are cursed, be unresponsive.
And when you are accused, smile.
They do not know what they are doing or saying. They are just revealing their poor psychological state, their anxiety and unsatisfied desires.
But it is not your fault.
