While I see your point funkyanarchy, I think current situation here seems to be a bit different. I consider my relationships with my close friends I mentioned as deep and trusting, for instance if I feel depressed or I do not know ill or something they would help me, talk with me, listen to me. So it is not like we are just having fun together. Rather the problem seems to be that we lack a common material infrastructure, some sorf of maybe a communal existence that would make feel safe and cared for. Otherwise we become so depended on the system and any crises as in this case made so many people just run away to their families in a somewhat childish manner, as if their families could protect them in a prolonged interruption of the system due to epidemic.
