4. That's an optimistic way of putting it.

But I think it would take a hell of a hit to make humans change. I don't think it would last more than half a generation before our nature would resume it's normal pace. It's our innate psychopathic nature that needs to die and I don't see a virus changing society enough to make a dent in that. Although we like to think we care, our empathy is undeveloped. The psychopath within is still the major player. Until humans can purge that and the ideologies that feed it, even a saving plague would only be a blip on our way to our demise. SARS-CoV-2 isn't the virus we really need to fear. The real virus is us.
