COVID-19: Our Modern Tower of Babel May 11, 2020

Posted by geoff in COVID-19, News.

We were seemingly headed toward global everything: communication, travel, commerce, entertainment, etc. – all of it. Post-COVID, however, we’re seeing headlines like:

Delta is “consolidating” their routes and dropping several cities

Reduced travel options, restrictions on travel between countries, realization that global commerce can lead to domestic shortages, the threat of future pandemics, . . .

. . . well, it’s like the people and economies are being de-globalized and isolated.

Much as with languages in the tale of the Tower of Babel.
