Re: Coronavirus

You really don't think that there's a relationship between individualism and making choices in self-interest rather than the interest of the group? Isn't that literally the definition of individualism?

I just finished reading Murakami's The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle .

I've been reading way less than I'd like. Looking forward to others'...
