Amnesty? How about EVIDENCE FIRST!
Amnesty talk is in the air! We are being asked to “forget everything” and “forgive each other.” The Atlantic asks:
we need to learn from our mistakes and then let them go…
But dwelling on the mistakes of history can lead to a repetitive doom loop as well. Let’s acknowledge that we made complicated choices in the face of deep uncertainty, and then try to work together to build back and move forward.
Cartoonist Bob Moran illustrated this very well:
Will “dwelling on the mistakes of history lead to a repetitive doom loop”? Or, will the “forget everything” approach suggested by Emily lead us to that “repetitive doom loop” instead?
We Need Evidence
How about, before the “amnesty,” we first collect evidence before it is forgotten? Finally, YOU, my dear reader, can submit YOUR story to be collected.
Our friend Naomi Wolf from DailyClout, the inveterate fighter for our freedoms and the safety of children, is leading a project to collect EVIDENCE in the form of personal stories.
The invitation is here.
Be aware that you are trusting your form information to the internet. So please, people, BE MINDFUL OF YOUR PRIVACY AND THOSE YOU MENTION.
Thank you, Naomi, for working hard and collecting this testimony. Please keep the information safe and secure!
Make Comments Here, As Well
While I do want your pandemic testimony to be preserved by Naomi, you can also respond here and say whatever you want, as always.
I want to ask a question different from Naomi’s, so you submit your testimony to her — and share something else, but related, here.
My question to you is: did the pandemic make you —
Did the pandemic make you learn more about human nature, medicine, history, politics, etc.? Did you perhaps try harder to be healthy than usual? Were you a better person in 2019, or are you a better person now?
Is the history of 2020-2022 all doom and gloom, or are you seeing any progress in terms of human qualities around you, despite all the hardships?
