The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has dominated headlines, leaving little room for much else. This allows politicians and other institutions of power to sneak their underhanded, controversial decisions in now, when the media is less likely to fixate on them.
If the pandemic has taught me anything useful, it is to appreciate irony. While I do not buy into the supernatural concept of fate, the universe, it seems, has a tendency to wink at those who look it in the face.
More and more schools across the nation are making decisions regarding their operating status in the fall, with many already stating that they will be open for business.
I find that the saying “life imitates art” becomes truer as I get older.
As a matter of successful advocacy, it has become habit to make the ethos argument. In a capitalist society, advocacy often boils down to arguments around impacts. The successful arguments usually have dollar signs in them.
One would assume that during these pressing times of the COVID-19 pandemic, geopolitics and the typical bickering between nations would be put on the back burner for a short while. After all, countries do need to direct all their energy towards keeping their people safe and healthy.
I know that things in our world are very doom and gloom. I wake every day like everyone else, turn on the TV, scroll through my feed and see the generally poor state of affairs. The virus of Covid-19 has claimed many people’s lives, some of whom I personally know and some I know but not personally.
There is something obscene about using the coronavirus pandemic to make people’s lives worse. Proctortrack does exactly that. At a time when Rutgers students are suffering, subjecting them to surveillance is reprehensible.
While companies like Amazon and Instacart see a boom in sales during the COVID-19 pandemic, workers are losing their jobs and risking their safety due to inadequate pay and care.
Freud argued that the dual-system model of the mind was the most plausible explanation for how our consciousness works. Although his intuitions are often criticized today, his theories made waves in the psychological community and helped to lay the foundation, upon which all of modern psychology has been built.
The quote by Patrick Henry, “Give me Liberty, or give me death!” which he orated in 1775 at the Second Virginia Convention, has become a staple of the lexicon of the American patriot.
Headlines across the globe seldom are absent the words “coronavirus” or “pandemic,” so naturally, news unrelated to the crisis at hand slips under the radar. One example of this is Hungary, which, outside of forming an increasingly autocratic government, is apparently ready to marginalize their transgender further.
In the short span of just a few months, it has become commonplace for governments across the globe to enforce strict lockdown measures in ongoing efforts to slow the spread of the highly contagious coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Democracy is a system by the people, for the people. It is a message that has been passed on by generations, but unfortunately due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), democracy has been called into question as voters grapple with weighing the value of their ballot and their lives, fearful of possibly catching COVID-19.
But they are not real doctors.
