Humanity And Mass Generalizations

This is from Facebook, but I am having to write everything down as it wouldn’t copy and paste like the others have.

********************************************************************************

Why is it we are compelled

to make mass

generalizations and peg

individuals as something

or someone they clearly

are not?

We are losing our

humanity.

I am inclined to believe that this is happening on account of the pandemic. The quarantine makes us become almost unrecognizable, what with having to wear a mask and gloves when out in public places. This is necessary so as not to spread the COVID-19 to our self or to others. Unfortunately, I am one of those people that may recognize you in a uniform, if you wear one everyday, but not recognize you in regular everyday clothes. The same thing applies to people that normally wear their hair up and when they wear it down, I don’t know who in the heck they are. I know that this is true for me, but I have a hard time remembering people’s names as is. The mask makes it several times harder to know who you are talking to.

The worst part about all of this pandemic is the people who are not taking it seriously, and therefore not wearing the required masks or gloves. They think that they are invincible. Not once do they stop to think about the other guy on either side. Does this guy have COVID-19? Will I actually be able to not get deathly ill if I go around this guy? Will I give this COVID-19 to someone else in my family, that won’t be able to overcome it if they get it?

These are the things that selfish people don’t even care about. The reason being in the first part of the word SELFish. They only think about how it is going to burden them with having to do all this extra stuff, not to mention not being able to go where ever they want to go because of social distancing and most places being closed or semi-closed in that they are only open certain hours and then only let in a certain number of people.

Hopefully this COVID-19 won’t last too much longer, and we can get back to being basically normal with just still wearing a mask when going out. Although I have read that it’s possible that this will last to 2022 and the longest period going out to the end of 2025. So far as I’m concerned, I will keep doing the precautions until there have been no new cases reported for a period of 4-6 weeks.
