The Divided States of Corona

Updated: May 12, 2020

The politicalization and villainization of the corona-virus pandemic in America is very destructive and counterproductive. People accusing other people of wanting people to die, or allowing people to die, or causing people to die does not save lives. Many people on all sides are doing this.

No one wants other people to die. No one is actively preventing N-95 masks from being made, or ventilators from being produced. No one is blocking effective treatments or vaccines from being created. No one knew exactly what to do when it needed to be done.


Hindsight is indeed 20-20. Crystal clear foresight is rare. Everyone is doing the best they can, working with the best information available, using their best judgement to save as many lives and livelihoods as they can. Some decisions have been wrong, others have been right or just plain lucky. No one has the inside track on all the truth and all the right answers. Instead of attacking each other, we need to come together because a divided nation will cause more deaths from this virus than any decision that anyone has made.
