In this country, we live in an ironclad cultural box cast iron thick and immobile individualistic/tragically separate/competitive We can't find our way to simple collective action for the common good in the most fundamental, easy to understand moment, when it is life and death, a plague, a biological, physical plague that threatens our communal existence, it is impossible for us to sense ourselves as collective beings to take the simple collective act of self-preservation of wearing masks against the plague It's inconceivable for us in this cast iron brother against brother agression this nation beyond the pale extremists on the edge of human experience exceptionalism is the bullshit we're eating and spewing in lieu of simple common sense
