The current drastic measures to reduce the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus have people so much on edge that it is difficult to believe that we can come out of this unscathed psychologically and culturally.
Since 2001 most of us, especially those born since then, have become inured to a culture of surveillance but, with the current pandemic, we seem to be entering into an informant culture where everyone is suspected to be a possible bio-weapon.
Professor Salim Mansur likens our current predicament to Ken Kesey’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest with only a few of us realizing that we are in an institution for the insane.
This is a precarious time where the West’s very culture of individual freedom is in peril of being lost forever. Our situation is made all the worse since we are tacitly committing ourselves into an asylum of our own making.
