Exchange of Views – Bonding and Orientation to counter Social Distancing
People are talking more! With each other and especially about Corona, and they are trying to make sense of it. This is a new quality: Corona provides an existential topic that affects everyone, one that can be a “drama” for them in some form, indirectly or directly, even if it factually affects others you know or are close to. One hears a lot, stories and fates are told. And “the danger” itself and its consequences are far from being averted. The condition does not “settle,” it circles and remains volatile.
People who were otherwise rather “at a distance” suddenly “can” a bit with each other. The Corona experience “unites” them. It binds them more strongly than the otherwise effective distances (lifestyle, social status, age, etc.) separate them.
