It’s dramatic. No, it’s definitely much more than that: It’s an existential crisis.
What’s so bad, you ask?
The answer is: Everything!
When it comes to news, the superlative is the new normal:
- Rains are torrential or, alternatively, diluvian
- Winds are at least hurricanes, unless they are “the storm of the century”
- Five snowflakes constitute a snow disaster
- When it comes to diseases, “pandemic” is the minimum stake
Unfortunately, the hype is not optional, it has become mandatory. Questioning the constant state of excitement is tantamount to ignorance and downplaying the gravity of the situation.
