I was looking through the many threads, and notice no one had posted a reply,
A suggestion: I feel insecure, unsettled, and can't find rhyme nor reason for recent events, but so I don't label myself as 'crazy', I stick it on the world instead. So there, I'm okay and the world is not!
With 'world' war, with one set of several nations' leaders co-operatively going to war with another set of leaders' over some ideological differences or because one group thinks to seize power and control of another group and other groups choose sides. Whether it is 'crazy' depends entirely on your point of view.
With this latest viral pandemic, it is a mindless virus spreading. It is one which our bodies are not well equipped to resist. It 'wants' to live. It 'looks' for hosts. It is too efficient when it reproduces at rates which cause us severe illness, and death. Then it loses it's host. I gather, it is within its' own interests to eventually mutate into a gentler form and become something our bodies can accommodate without causing the illness it currently does. It will become like the bacteria which our bodies host, even need, now, without us even being aware.
In the meantime, we are scrambling, trying to keep as many of us alive and well. I don't call that 'crazy'.
It's when we seem to have made decisions which fly in the face of reason, which would lead towards our own destruction, that I might consider using a word like 'crazy'.
But, I am not actually comfortable using 'crazy' anyway, for anything. Especially as a derogatory word to describe any person, their mental health difficulties, or anyone who has a different perspective...& more I am sure, when I think about it.
Throughout the ages, the fact we are still a more or less thriving race, might be perceived as a reason for hope. Personally, I struggle with liking humanity that much. We do have our good points, but ... we sure do have some bad....mmMekitty the misanthrope? Perhaps.
I noticed you have not posted much. I hope I will see you around again.
