Too Fragile

“Moral panic over Ukraine” and “emotional manipulation” are the right’s “we are all in this together” and “mostly peaceful protests.”

What’s really funny is that the exact same people who mocked the left for being incapable of accepting that death from natural causes exists are now in the exact same kind of denial that violent death exists.

We are caught between people who are too fragile to accept that aerosolized particles can travel around a mask and people who are too fragile to accept that wars happen no matter how pouty it makes you. One side denies physical nature, while the other denies human nature. Both sides think that chanting mantras at reality will change the reality.
