Corona: An Allegory

Take something you know how to do. Say, driving. Now, imagine you’re in a room with a bunch of 12-year olds. They’re talking about how to drive and you recognize that a lot of what they’re saying about it is wrong. You explain to them, here’s how it actually works, I’ve actually done it before. And they’re like, well that’s just your opinion, man. I have a different opinion. I saw it on TV. I know just as much as you do.

What are you going to do? You’re going to leave that room. Unless you’re being paid to be there. In that case you might start seeing it differently. Might start seeing it as a grand philosophical roundtable. Might start wondering why all the other adults are packing their things and preparing to leave. Might start thinking they’re close-minded.
