I know somebody who went crazy during the COVID lockdowns. Completely lost touch with reality. It’s a quiet madness but it’s not any less sad because of it. This is a single person who ended up spending too much time alone and online during the lockdowns and now believes that everything is controlled by a conspiracy of Jewish bankers, from the unseasonably warm weather (Jewish bankers have special machines that control the weather to hurt farmers) to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine (Putin is a Jew) to the closure of the diner down the road whose owner retired (the Rothschilds had it in for the diner because of the FBI).
Obviously, there was some tendency to loopiness in this person before COVID but she’s now completely mentally gone.
This woman is two years younger than me, by the way.
