One thing that concerns me beyond the next few months and well into the next year: how in the world are we going to avoid getting this between now and an available vaccine? It's one thing to avoid getting sick when the world is basically locked down, but when life returns to normal, and we all start packing plains and trains, pubs and clubs, it seems that I will eventually be within breathing distance of someone who has this, and since this virus' incubation period stretches into 'dickhead' number of days, that I might infect someone far more vulnerable than myself in my robust 37 years.

So I get that the end game is herd immunity, but what I don't know is how we safely move our pieces to the other side of the board when it seems like every other square is a bear trap. Because while there is an 'after the pandemic,' it seems less and less likely that there will ever be an 'after the virus,' as this just may be a seasonal thing that's a part of every day life from now on. Am I missing something? Someone tell me I'm missing something, because living under the looming specter of COVID0-19 doesn't sound like a fun way to spend the next 12-18 months.

You'll probably be dead so I wouldn't worry.

This will be like flying pre and post 9-11. Public interactions will change a bit afterwards.

This post will probably age badly (as predictions often do), so I'll allow myself to go wild and say the future will be the more of the future we saw 30 years ago:

  • The 2nd Soviet Union: the pandemic will reduce foreign dependency on China, serving as a biological wedge uncoupling the West and China further. I'm sure internal consumption can sustain economic growth for a little longer but, as Xi's tight grip on the country will only make it more likely to commit more blunders in the future, another world-class snafu can probably knock China out the podium of the greatest economies, with all the geopolitical consequences.

    It took Japan one bubble burst to drift aimlessly for decades, after all. Causing a pandemic plus a random event might have a similar effect for China.

  • Automation: Once production moves away from China, it's unlikely jobs will move along with the flow because people get sick, robots don't.

  • Cashless Society: Now this one is odd. Sub-Saharan countries, such as Kenya, embraced technologies like M-Pesa, and debit cards are quite popular in emerging countries. Yet, paper money is still being thrown around like the time Marco Polo first saw it. That's pretty weird, if you think about it.

    Sure, not everyone has access to banking, but that's what technologies such as M-Pesa were made for anyway.

  • Climate Change Might Be Taken More Seriously: Nah, just kidding. We're barely taking an immediate threat seriously, let alone something in the near future.

Well aren't you all a sunny, optimistic bunch?

The most obvious and nearly-certain post-pandemic effects are increased totalitarianism and a steady, long-term erosion of civil liberties, justified by the supposed need for greater centralized authority as a means of preventing or responding to future pandemics.

I'd love to be wrong about this. But broad swaths of the global population readily accepting rather draconian restrictions on basic freedoms based largely on an appeal to authority has got to make any would-be dictator's mouth water.

Simple answer, we won't go back to normal anytime soon.
