Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.
By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.
What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.
In a post today, blogger Marilyn Armstrong wrote,
“I’m pretty sure that most people think that after this siege, things will go back to ‘the way things were.’ … I don’t think when the pandemic recedes we will be living in the same world. The world is going to change. I don’t know how and I don’t know if I’ll be around to see much of it, but it won’t be the same.”
I commented on her post,
“Sadly, given human nature to not learn from the past, things probably won’t change all that much once this pandemic is over. And with Trump having rolled back environmental protections, I’m afraid we’ll be right back doing the same damage to our planet as we were before this whole mess.”
So my provocative question this week is what do you think?
When we finally get through this COVID-19 pandemic at some point in the future, do you think the world is going to change from what is was like before anyone ever heard of coronavirus? Or will things quickly return to “business as usual”?
