Closeness in the time of Cholera
Great Britain for India, Donald Trump for the Democrats, Iran and North Korea for most of the world, and Coronavirus COVID-19 for all of the world.
There is one common adversary today. That is the reason why all have come together. It was inevitable. This is human nature. We need a reason, we need meaning, we need fear.
This is what the Bible predicted, this is what all other scriptures write about. When the great floods come, you need to shield humanity from it. Cooperation on a global scale is a necessity, without which we shall be unable to curb this adversary. We follow the scriptures blindly, but fail to comprehend the true meaning that lies within. We need to read them as we would any other great novel. Learn the most compelling lessons and adopt to our ever-changing and unpredictable lives ahead. The ways of going about might be different, but the lesson remains.
Somehow, this may be an eye-opener of a grand nature. This will help us all realize the meaning of being mortal, that the adversary is not another race, caste, creed, religion which are merely virtual constructs in our minds. We don't need virtual fears to curb our enthusiasm or meaning which leads us on convoluted paths with answers which can never be derived.
