I'm much more concerned about the number of people infected with willful stupidity, which includes educated government officials, than the number of people who have been infected with COVID-19.

Electronic aids, particularly domestic computers, will help the inner migration, the opting out of reality. Reality is no longer going to be the stuff out there, but the stuff inside your head. It's going to be commercial and nasty at the same time.

"Antisemitism isn't a tricky issue. It isn't political. It isn't a centrist concern. It is deeply embedded millennia old racism that needs to be combatted wherever it is seen. With conspiracy theories rife it is no surprise the oldest and deadliest one has risen too."
