I think many things will change when this is all over.

On the people side:
I think people will have a greater appreciation for, the medical workers (not the healthcare system) but the actual workers.
Teachers... How many parents actually have to spend time with kids now and realize it isn't so easy.
Food workers/grocery workers. They are truly unsung grunts that people normally don't think about.
Delivery services. Thank God for all the delivery workers. This quarantine would probably be so much worse without all of you.

I think families will re-evaluate what is important. I honestly feel like this feels similar to 9/11 in many ways.

On a negative note;
Places like Disney, hotels, sports attractions.
They have been raking the money in for years. I wonder if they realize they are absolutely nothing without people/fans. Maybe they should
stop gouging them!
Actors/Actresses. If I see one more "brag" about having the virus I'm going to gag. They are afforded the best medical care and help on earth.
Who cares if they get it.


Overall I think we are going to see sweeping changes to healthcare, elder care, banking, and maybe new processes regarding infectious diseases.
I wonder if there will be changes to things like Facebook (making it a utility). I could even see changes happening to the airline industry to protect it.

I guess we will all see what happens.

Prepare for an increase of streaming and real time communications, along with more people working from home and more online schooling.

Isaac Asimov prepared us for this, our future as Solarians.

Hopefully the need for imported goods.
No one does it better than right here at home.

People have short attention spans.

I don't foresee any changes that will last more than a few weeks or months.

Remember the color coded daily terrorism levels after 9-11?

People wrapping their houses in plastic?

It would be awesome to see America come together like we did during and for a few years after 9/11. It was a nice few years and I think that 9/11 showed each person what was most important to them and everyone was proud to be an American. Unfortunately, our country has become incredibly divided and hatred has run rampant for far too many years. Instead of working together, our country is tearing itself apart. We could help so many people here and around the world if our country would just work together and C-O-M-P-R-O-M-I-S-E.

This country has a very short history filled with unimaginable acts of hatred. What do we think will be written in history books about how the United States of American endured as a great nation 50-100 years from now? Will they write that we chose to continue hating or will they read that the U.S. is still the greatest nation in our world?

Everyone needs to decide what their most important “values” are and make a choice:

Do we want to continue being ####bag’s to each other and crush this nation OR can the adults get back to being adults working together, fighting only to ensure we have many future generations that have the opportunity to live in the greatest nation that WE ALL know the U.S. can and should be?

Too dramatic?

The world before and after 9/11 was completely different....

Trully, the s**tbags are the ones who are trying to strip Americans of their rights, and topple this nation. That is the main problem we are facing. If they win, we lose

Right, every person has to make a choice to be kind, or even just decent, to others. Once the majority ( not s**tbags or at least decent people) band together instead of fighting each other, we can all fight the minority (s**tbags or at least NOT decent people).

S**tbags can always cause divide...but if people truly say enough is enough and work together wouldn't that be something?

To be honest, I think we may be well past the point of no return.

I got in an argument today, and it was something like:
In solidarity with the weak and old we should all give up our liberties. Work together and be nice, and all of that.

I felt like the s**tbag enjoying the sunny day outside.

Sure I'm not in the risk group but seriously.

I would never have thought i could ever advocate for concentration camps. I'm not im advocating for calm down, everybody
but if the retoric keeps getting worse and the numbers don't... anytime!

lock them fearful people up, not on force of course they can choose to live a life afraid of death isolated from the world, or live and die happily with everyone else.

Use the fema camps.

Sincerely NC

Better yet, make the Fema camps into socialist commune work farms, and put the far left in them, so they can get a taste of what they want America to be like in the future

The state of human interaction will once more take hold, rendering us a selfish, combative, secluded lot ready to take what is mine to the denial of others, and glibly smirking at the demise of them as we hold in excess things we don't need, will never use, and simply gloat over having acquired.

we'll be fine.

For the short-term, maybe. But after the warm & fuzzy kumbaya feeling wears off, it'll be back to the same of "Cashier?? Useless eater do-nothing loser!" crap we're used to hearing people vomit out.

Maybe, but between Keeping Up With The Joneses and general materialism, I doubt it.

It'd be nice to see the theme parks become affordable to the everyday Joe again. And to see celebs only in the flicks and shows, instead of in the news. I'll give you those happily!

The healthcare end, it'll be fought against, posters here already are. The elder care end, likely to be forgotten about. Banking, still reviled but never fixed. CDC will probably gain more authority, though.

I don't doubt Fakebook will try to become classified as a utility one bit, and I can see a Too Big To Fail bailout for the airlines AND cruiselines, too.

To be very honest, I don't see Americans sticking to their wishlist guns, we don't follow through for s#. Or pay attention long enough to follow through. And opposing sides don't shut up long enough to find workable compromises to follow through with.

Basically, we'll go back to being the complaining, self-centered spoiled brat country the world knows and can't stand soon enough.
