COVID & OTHER
“Even a man who is pure in heart
and says his prayers by night
may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms
and the autumn moon is bright."
From the motion picture, “The Wolf Man” (1941)
If the COVID-19 pandemic has proved but one thing, it is that fiscal responsibility is not always rewarded - it is not always an effective barrier to financial crisis. Counties, parishes, cities and other local government entities throughout the U.S. have been at the very least challenged by the economic consequences of COVID-19. Certainly, this is not the first time that an unpredictable disaster has created financial crisis. Certainly, this will not be the last.
…That is, if that person has had the misfortune of an unplanned encounter with a werewolf, which resulted in the person being bitten.
In other words, despite how good a person is, bad things can happen. The same is true for government.
However, a philosophical outlook does not preserve government jobs. It does not preserve government services. It does not maintain confidence in government leaders. The fatalistic approach, “quel che sarà, sarà”, simply is irresponsible.
What matters is avoiding or unwinding furloughs. What matters is avoiding reduction in government services or restoring them. Results can maintain or restore confidence. There is no participation ribbon for simply trying.
