why, it’s almost as though mandated isolation and relentless fear and guilt narratives are taking a toll on our children.
come on adults of america, you’re better than this. you’re supposed to lead and raise these kids, not hold them hostage in an ill-conceived epidemiological LARP that serves no purpose beyond assuaging your own wet-pants atavistic night-terrors.
