I'd like to start with a presentation from Sadhguru Darshan, who is a renown Indian Mystic, on New Years Eve, 31 December 2020. The evenings discourse was on what to expect of 2021.
2020 was like... this...

Regional news for the day.
There is growing concern that the new Covid19 vaccines will need to be re-evaluated in light of the new higher transmissible SA/UK variant. Just as light was beginning to emerge at the end of a very long and gloomy tunnel, the South African variant of the coronavirus threatens to undermine the vaccine and testing gains of recent months.
UK has gone back into full lockdown (surprise!)
Covid19 Pandemic - Conspiracy
There is growing social media and video posts denying the existence of a Covid19 Pandemic. Seriously; taking video or pictures of empty halls, empty wards, empty ambulances does not prove anything. Outpatient wards and hallways are empty - of course. You don't think highly contagious people are lying in hospital corridors or in the general outpatients area? You must be joking. There are also increasing numbers of remote video appointments. Covid 19 wards are out of bounds to non-infected and general populations. Just like the 'toilet roll' brigade from 2020, you need to learn --- freedom of speech also has responsibilities.
Rowan Atkinson says cancel culture is digital equivalent of 'medieval mob'
Online cancel culture is like a "medieval mob looking for someone to burn", Rowan Atkinson has claimed.
The star of Blackadder and Mr Bean has long advocated for free speech and has campaigned against legislation he believes stifles expression.
Atkinson, 65, is fearful of the online practice of silencing unpopular opinions by calling out those who hold them and making them pariahs. He has compared the trend to medieval societies rooting out heretics to burn at the stake.
The actor believes this culture of "cancelling" individuals is a threat both to the victims of the online mob and to the future of free speech.
