"Some People Just Want to Watch the World Burn"

Periods of great uncertainty can become a teacher to us.  In uncertainty, we abandon our conceptual models and learn to see things as they truly are, not as our friends, our family, and even our own prior experience lead us to believe they are. 

On the other hand, we need to be careful that paranoia doesn't lead us to accept a narrative that doesn't exist outside of a runaway imagination. 

A middle way exists between blind faith and cynical doubt.
