Right now, things are very tense in the United States. They’ve been that way for a while, actually. Even before COVID-19, the political landscape was incredibly tense. Violence was no longer an uncommon occurrence when it came to political “discussions” in places like Portland and many others. We were almost used to riots breaking out at any given time.
Hell, people wore protective clothing to go and exercise their First Amendment rights.
And now, we’re all locked down in our homes while our grocery store shelves remain far barer than any of us are comfortable seeing. That’s not a recipe for happy-making.
