While the world stands still, the contagions spread.

Klara Sax names contagious matter (and various depictions thereof in popular culture, where she can think of any that are worth your while):
- laughter
- yawning
- social amnesia
- a cold
- gossip (Nina Simone - Blues For Mama (1967)
- panic (The Simpsons Season 5, Episode 11)
- trading morals for the prospect of personal safety (The Oath, Ike Barinholtz, 2018)
- hysteria (Requiem by Hans-Christian Schmid, 2006)
- empty fear
- herpes
- fabricated hatred (The Purge, James DeMonaco, 2013)
- them&us mentality (Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing (1989)
- ignorance (Mike Judge: Idiocracy, 2006)
- exploitation of crises (The Shock Doctrine, book by Naomi Klein from 2009 + The Shock Doctrine, a 2009 documentary by Michael Winterbottom and Mat Whitecross)
- the dismantling-of-costly-contingency-facilities bug
- the personal-guilt&responsibility-instillment flu
- herd behaviour (Darren Aronofsky: Mother! (2017)
- feeling down (Work No. 614, Martin Creed)

If you’re feeling bad and your thoughts are sad, pass them on to someone else...

Pass them on, pass them on, pass them on, pass them
Pass them on, pass your bad feelings on, pass them
Pass them on, pass them on, pass them on, pass them
Pass them on, pass them on

Pass them on, pass your bad feelings on, pass them,
Pass them on, pass them on, pass them on, pass them
Pass them on, pass them on, pass them on, pass them
Pass them on, pass them on

Pass your bad feelings on to a friend or a relative, or someone else that you know


- all the viruses, bacteria (Lars von Trier’s Epidemic (1987); Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal (1957)
- fleas
- cheerfulness
- good-deeds-doing

 


     
 

 




According to current newspapers and public debate, there are hardly any wars, any maltreated refugees, any non-corona-related humanitarian crises at all, nor climate emergency or natural disasters in the world worth talking about anymore. Should we not rejoice?
