someone referred to the "year of unprocessed grief" and it really struck me because it's not like i'm unhappy to be getting to do things like go to the gym again but i feel fucking weird about it because there is this desperate attempt to refuse acknowledgment of how shit this past year was. get back to economic productivity, money producing organism. it's fucking dehumanizing is what it is
@dankwraith people are like intentionally trying to forget it happened and its fucking wild becaue shit was legitimately traumatic
@dankwraith the only silver lining I can think of is how they're having a hard time filling minimum wage jobs. Beginning of a labor movement? Only took 600,000 American lives! 🙄
it's like we're supposed to pretend we did not learn a thing about the frailty and interconnectedness of being alive
and just go back to making more money for the (already) very wealthy ...
also, pandemic only supports the idea that humans (and their civilizations) must evolve or they will perish
@dankwraith it does seem like instead of collective grief we had as a society like, say, post 9-11 people are just like 'so how did you enjoy this past year of getting to spend uninterrupted time with your families and not having to commute and catching up on Netflix? 😎
