Coronavirus is making touch-free shopping a necessity

The coronavirus crisis is obviously changing how people shop and, I think, training people to accept an entirely cashless society in the future. In the second article, I find it interesting how Steve Forbes thinks a cashless society will make diets easier to monitor and control. So after this outbreak lessens, things are opened up, there will be more people trying to regulate the diets of others more too. We’re already kind of seeing it with calls to get humans to stop eating dogs and bats. I also don’t think overconsumption will happen with food and other things in the future, only what is “essential”, especially because I remember an article I shared about some guidelines from people that wanted to help the environment, for a diet, and they recommended things like only one and a half chicken nuggets a day. But, there will have to be fighting in order to make this all occur, because order comes out of chaos and long ago, I blogged about how I think when you help the environment, you’re not really free, but when you are free, you don’t really help the environment! So we’re unfortunately placed in a situation where we’re damned if we do and damned if we don’t with the environment! In a already divided world, this is just another division that is being made, the choice whether to fight for freedom or the environment and security. I’d like to believe we can find a balance however, of an agreement that benefits all sides, but maybe it’s just a dream, not a real possibility.
