I haven't seen or heard the question answered..

To me it is just a juvenile , meaningless phrase.
Something like , "Keep On Truckin"

At least 'Keep on Truckin' has a fun song attached to it.
This ill-conceived catch phrase has a virus attached to it.
Yay, we are all in a cess-pool of sickness and death, be happy.
Then people figure out that they had the illness before they shut everything down and made us wear masks.
This is not going to work out so well for TPTB.
People aren't sick of the virus, they are sick of our liberty-stealing bureaucrats.

But that's not where I was going with my comment.

I was simply pointing out that the clause "we're all in this together" squares just fine with my worldview. It rolls off my shoulders and then I go about my day.

I suspected as much, but the irony was contained in the words you used...which expressed my point exactly!

The best part is if you aren't in this with everyone else your neighbors will narc you out.

Best comply and be a good little do-bee.

Do all candid, non-political remarks imply socialism or communism to you?

No, absolutely not.

However, when one says...

"Considered Collectively" sure as heck does!

And, this is what you said in response, is it not?

I have heard and seen that message constantly on broadcast TV, not the radio though. I realize that many businesses are advertising such messages to remind people they are still there and in your corner (so to speak). It is starting to piss me off and I never examined why. Most corona virus information and talk is contradictory, void of solid facts, so now I get angry (sometimes really angry) and tune out by mute button or changing the station (and bitching out loud).

A lot of people, businesses and groups are working toward producing needed supplies and providing services during the shut downs. I'd say many are motivated by a desire to help, but many others are just trying to survive the crisis and stay relevant. So, even though I agree that sheltering in place, limiting outings, social distancing, and mask wearing are the opposite of what you expect when you hear, "We're all in this together", it has to be admitted that the reaction by world governments is screwing all of us in many ways because of the virus. This catch phrase should more accurately be, "We're all getting screwed by the government together". Of course we've all had that in common since forever.

They dont try to hide # anymore which in case of lying media and NWO-promoting bureaucrats is suicidal. Refreshing but not very clever when you wanna be popular.

Why would "considered collectively", a sense of the word "together", elicit political paranoia? "Considered collectively" can mean a million things depending on your angle of entry. How about "we're all humans dealing with the same problem"? Merely thinking of a collection of things doesn't make one a communist.

"We're all in this together" ignores the rights of the individual.

Individual rights? Wow! What a novel idea. That should be written down somewhere. Oh wait...

Ummm...your absolutely right...

We're...NOT...all in this together...

But only because some ass hats can't seem to understand that their rights do not include the right to adversely affect any body else... do not have the right to infect or otherwise cause harm to me...or anyone else...

That's not one of your enumerated rights...

Until we all get on that page...then no...we're certainly not all in this together...

Before you or anyone else gets on about the right to adversely affect your paycheck or financial situation...or free not wear a mask or otherwise have a conscience and not want to possibly adversely affect anyone else...

so...yessir...your quite right...even though your wrong...

We are all in this together, unless you need a haircut and then it's off to jail with you.

Well, even though I take almost complete exception to every single thing you said, thank you!

Because...we're all in this (crap) together...and you just proved my point perfectly!

You are buying exactly what THEY are peddling! CONTROL!

Those who oppose this "mind screw," need to be patient.

Many Americans are silently fuming over the tyrannical, incompetent measures imposed by DemocRAT governors, and will soon have their say.

Many are angry and disappointed by those who've easily given up their freedoms, while drinking the Kool-Aid being served by the Dems, MSM, WHO and CDC.

Notice how any opposing view expressed by other doctors and researchers are conveniently censored and removed from social media?

IMO, we, The People, will correct this out of control, authoritarian social experiment, that was designed to convert us all into "sheep" and destroy our Constitution.

I think that Trump gets re-elected because of this, and a Red wave will take over the House. The Republicans will be in total control of Congress. The nightmare will be over, and Pelosi will be stuffing her "glass face" with chocolate and ice cream. Liberals will be crying and protesting in the streets, because their authoritarian socialist dreams will be wiped out.

Once we re-elect President Trump, we can come up with our own catchphrase to help heal the country. Or, better yet, we can use one of Trump's own statements: "Our Country is Transitioning back to Greatness."

You must be talking about the Governors that putting covid patients in nursing homes.

Well, if we are all in this together, I think I will move into Pelosi's house because she has the best ice cream selection.
