Meanwhile, in people’s minds…
Back in March, most people thought the lockdown would be lifted after a few weeks and that, eventually, everything would go back to normal. Now, after many months of lockdown extensions and insane social distancing guidelines, people are accepting the fact that reality has been successfully rearranged.
According to a survey of 2,000 Americans:
- 75% fear “normal” isn’t coming back
- 59% are afraid of the workplace, with 36% thinking the office would put them and their families at risk
- 64% don’t feel productive due to pandemic-induced anxiety
- 70% are stressed out by the thought of public transport
- 75% think handshakes are a thing of the past
- 45% think companies should do temperature checks before workers enter the office
- 53% miss the days before face masks
- 52% want to return to the office and feel safe
- 36% wish they could stop worrying about infecting their family
People getting used to this anti-social and highly neurotic lifestyle is exactly what our rulers wanted.
Remember the good old days, way back in 2019? It’s an odd feeling to be nostalgic for a time that just passed, but according to a new survey of 2,000 Americans, many among us are worried the world will never return to its simpler, pre-coronavirus state.
All in all, 75% of surveyed Americans said they fear life will never return to what was once “normal.”
The survey, commissioned by Torch, asks respondents how they envision the world will appear in the wake of COVID-19. One overarching theme that participants echo is just how different the workplace, and employment in general, will be.
As of now, 59% of surveyed Americans admit they would be far too afraid to start reporting to a shared workplace once again. Meanwhile, 36% have concerns they’ll never be able to get back to the office without potentially putting themselves and their family in harm’s way.
In broader terms, 63% of participants flat out say their job will never the be the same. That same group is anticipating working remotely for at least the rest of 2020.
Interestingly, when asked about their manager or boss, 60% shares the belief that their supervisor didn’t handle the transition to remote work quite as well as he or she should have. Also, 67% think their employer doesn’t understand how hard it is to work from home, especially for parents.
Of course, parent or not, it seems pretty much everyone is feeling more on edge these days. Most survey participants (64%) don’t feel as productive as they should be due to intrusive feelings of pandemic-related anxiety.
Even when offices do eventually re-open, there’s still the major problem of commuting to consider; 70% of respondents say just the thought of using public transit stresses them out. Similarly, another 64% think their employer should be much more flexible regarding remote work, even when offices are fully reopened.
Close to 75% of survey participants believe handshakes are now a relic of the past. Another 45% think companies should start administering temperature checks before office entrance is permitted.
Additionally, 53% of Americans long for the days when masks and gloves were only needed on construction sites. Another 52% just want to return to work in an office and feel safe. More than a third (36%) simply wish they could stop worrying about infecting their family.
The months-long campaign by the media/government to scare people of a flu-tier virus is working quite well. What they’re doing to people is a form of torture. People are scared, watching the economy crumble as they’re told that their family is one sneeze away from dying.
All of this is being done through lies.
Nothing done in response to coronavirus makes sense, unless you assume that the objective isn’t to keep people safe but to rapidly and radically transform society.
If more people knew this, perhaps they’d stop being afraid and start demanding their dignity back.
