“We can’t keep living like this?” is the cry. (Chip Le Grand and Sumeyya Ilanbey, “‘We can’t keep living like this’: COVID-19 state of emergency opens political divide,” The Age, 23 August 2020.) That’s not a cry of much use as we defend ourselves from an implacable and deadly enemy. We must change many things and quickly. Maybe we can’t live indefinitely in lockdown as we are now, but we must drastically and permanently change to ways of living very different from before. That is not optional and the Victorian Premier, Dan Andrews, knows it. Change or die: pick one.
