Summary
"Our pre-March 2020 world is gone forever. Irretrievable. For in league with mass surrender to all-powerful technology, the "restrictions" against human assembly, speech and gathering, culture and worship brought on by pandemic panic have brought new cultural norms frighteningly at odds with traditional Western notions of freedom and independent thought. Indeed, in our fear of public ostracism and shaming and our ready abandonment of free, open, spontaneous, individualistic, egalitarian and tolerant expression, we in the West today live in a world of CCP-style regimentation and conformity. It is a world in which all human endeavor--all human joy, all human fellowship, all human advancement, all human culture, all human song, all human drama, all worship, all surprise, all flirtation, all celebration--is behind a digital pay wall. A world in which we must ask permission of technology to be human. This is a world we must challenge and change"--
