Brendan O'Connor Opinion Brendan O’Connor: Whatever happened to We’re All In It Together?
Just so we’re clear. The whole “We’re all in this together” thing, that’s over now, is it? Just so we’re all agreed, and we all know where we stand. We can barely remember those times now, 2020, the first half of 2021. They seem like some kind of a dream. All that baking and jogging and home-schooling and gathering around the TV for doomsday announcements. We all agreed it was bringing out the best of us. Things were going to change forever. It made us realise the old ways had been all wrong. Yes, it would all be different now. We would be grateful for everything, we would look out for each other, and for mother Earth. It was a wake-up call, a great reset. We were going to reassess everything.
