If you don’t do as you prescribe, you will undermine your own authority.
I couldn’t help but notice that members of the press were standing on top of each other whilst confronting a local politician about why he didn’t observe the Social Distancing Guidelines. Questions like : “Do you think the rules don’t apply to you?” are important but seem hollow when the accusers are part of a melange of hot sweaty bodies crushing together to assail the hapless father and daughter.
This seems to suggest all the members of the upper echelons of society including the upper class, intelligentsia, celebrities, journalists and politicians see themselves as untouchable but virtue of their status. The fact that the press absent-mindedly trip over one another to ask that one incisive, damning question reveals their sanctimonious self-importance.
Whose pandemic is it, anyway?
Since we are currently still social distancing and have oodles of time, why not go and browse more of my work? Check out my Pointy Politburo for more, or you can view more of my other current affairs commentary on Pinterest.
