People who have been fortunate in life have no idea what it does to a child to be locked up with a chaotic parent all day long. This is why they can’t comprehend how destructive they have been to children in such families with their support for lockdowns and school closures.
It’s impossible to hate them because they don’t do it on purpose. They are simply that clueless and sheltered. But it’s hard not to get very exasperated. These folks are wreaking horrible damage and it’s impossible to get through to them because they are extremely smug and don’t let any new information in.
Everybody should watch Hillbilly Elegy and imagine a hundred thousand kids like JD locked in a room with a mother like Bev for months. Just imagine it. How can you do this to people simply to gratify a neurosis? It’s inhuman.
