Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 71

I was reading up on some conspiracy theories this evening. The sheer amount and the variety of topics are kind boggling!

It makes me wonder why we like conspiracy theories and why we as humans believe some obvious untruths. I am neither a psychologist nor a philosopher, but even so I find it fascinating.

What worries me about these theories and so many other things is that the people who suffer most are the ones who have no choice in the matter. The poor, vulnerable, uneducated or young always have to bear the brunt of other people’s decisions.

I lament the fact that so much money is wasted or stolen or just badly managed when it could have been used to uplift communities, provide essential services and make the world a better place.

I think the greatest conspiracy is that greed overpowers compassion and kindness, and we accept it as normal.

Be kind. Stay safe
