Offices were perfectly safe places for centuries until they suddenly became extremely dangerous places, but now they're perfectly safe places again (until they suddenly become extremely dangerous places again).
The gaslighting is just off the charts. If you didn't believe the danger was real then you were getting vilified. But now if you do believe the danger is real then you're also getting vilified.
The only good citizen is the one who accepts whatever he's told on any given day, without ever comparing it against observable/measurable reality, and without ever recalling what he was told the previous day (because what he was told yesterday will often contradict what he's being told today).
Disagree about what? A worker is allowed to disagree when you assure him it's safe, because for two years you insisted it was not safe, but after disagreeing he should nevertheless come in anyway because a good worker must be willing to commit? (except, of course, during those periods when a good worker should not commit, because it would be crazy dangerous to commit?)
Remember that whole thing about how being irrationally fearful helped to protect other people? Being fearful was the same as being unselfish? I guess it doesn't work that way anymore? Now we're saying being fearful is the same as being selfish? Until tomorrow when we say being fearful is being unselfish again?
Where the heck did those nutbar conspiracy theorists ever dig up that nonsense? Affordable what? Climate what?
Now if you'll excuse me, some unmarked police vehicles just arrived at my door. Not sure what that's about..
