The people who suffer economically in the lockdown – the waiters, the store assistants, the cleaners, the Uber drivers, everybody, that is, who can’t work online – are the same people who can’t get themselves heard in the digital economy.
And the ones who can get themselves heard don’t see any economic damage from the lockdown. The 10 million (not counting the gig workers) who have lost their jobs in the lockdown don’t shape the narrative and live in a different reality than people who use expressions like “shape the narrative.”
This is the only real polarization in this country.
Has anybody you are listening to about the usefulness of the lockdown lost their job? Or is about to lose their job? Wouldn’t that skew their perspective a bit?
