If people don't go back to work we're all going to become anti-social hermits.  People are already very isolated in our society as it is even before the pandemic.  We're all going to end up just living on the internet and meeting people in virtual reality, which is a pretty sick society.

If thatís the case, then youíre doing life wrong. 

When things were uncertain with COVID, we certainly didnít see many people.  But for several months, knowing how itís spread and how to prevent it, Iív seen friends about 3-4 times a weekÖ.  Probably more than normal!

Our workplace was really one of the few community spaces we have left for adults.  People often don't converse with neighbours near as much as they used to, people have stopped going to church, people are having less kids which means less community contact through schools and child play-friends on their street or class etc.

Then people will need to fix that problem.  I limit my social contact with people I have to work with, for the most part.  Like MH saysÖ. Go meet your neighbours.

Society is becoming very ill socially and psychologically while we advance in technology.  We're already feeling seeing these rising of mental illness, the world has sped up and has turned inward.

Are we seeing increased mentally illness issues?  Or just more awareness?
