I'm not a superfan of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but I read some of them, liked them, and I found a lot of the characters wonderful, and many story elements have stayed with me for many years.
In that series, travelers through the cosmos could run into trouble. Really big trouble, with the huge, unpredictable Universe out there. Those travelers would carry a guidebook to keep themselves informed during their travels: That guidebook was called, of course, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. And what was written on the front of that book, in block letters?
Good advice. Always.
It might be understandable that people are panic-shopping in the wake of the virus. But it's destructive to our fellow humans, to tear through stores and take more than we need. Many stores are imposing limits on certain products, which is good.
To be uncaring about the situation is not a good idea, either. This is serious stuff. But to surrender to the animal-thinking and panic of self-preservation is not the way either.
It's the middle way. To take it seriously, and take precautions, but not to panic.
Facing the potential attacks in front of World War II, a British Government-released motivational poster was produced. It read -
Keep Calm and Carry On.
At some point, this will pass. So keep calm and Carry On.
And Don't Panic.
