Thanks, a helpful correction. And it can help clarify what I'm talking about.
... One can think about whether the virus itself is viewed as the bad thing or whether it is the disease or pandemic we're living through that is so bad. I guess most of us would not view the virus, in an isolated test-tube, as bad in and of itself. Maybe. On the other hand, I think that both the disease and the pandemic are very awful and tragic things to us.
The part I'm leaving out there, and probably not something to explore in this forum, is that from other perspectives, not everything we find as evil, hurtful, and sad, will be viewed with the same conclusion. But I couldn't help it, because I've been thinking about this idea a fair amount lately.
