The number zero, like all other human constructions, hasn’t always existed. For millennia, beings roamed the earth who had not yet invented God, taxes, or rights of any kind to be violated.

Perhaps the upshot of COVID-19 is that those of us who make it through will live in a world where we question the longevity of the systems we’ve come to rely on. And we might all just be a little less quick to lean on them too heavily once the status quo stabilises.
Even if only for a while.
