U.S. - With more and more people either vaccinated or already recovered from COVID, many think things could go back to normal. This proposition is scaring many on the Far-Left.
"We don't want normal," said activist Earnest Greer. "We want radical change. What if everything goes back to the way it was without us completely dismantling and rebuilding the system?"
Liberals saw the pandemic as an opportunity to get people less clingy to individual freedom and more accepting of government planning significant parts of everyone's lives. Normal would mean relinquishing that power, which is anathema to the Left.
"Normal is like the worst thing ever," said Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the world's smartest socialist. "Normal is systemic racism and inequality and people telling me the math doesn't add up on all my plans - even though I didn't do any math."
Still, many people are out and about and enjoying themselves - a sight that makes the left curse and stomp their feet. "It had been so great," said liberal commentator Greg Fletcher. "We tell people when they can leave their houses, what to wear, when they can open their businesses, and what to inject themselves with. Normal means an end to all that. Well, hopefully, normal is dead for good."
Here is a comprehensive list of the only instances it is acceptable for men to shed a tear.
