I'm more of an O bla di, O bla da, guy.  Depends on the day though.

The coda (if I am using the term correctly) to one of my favorite songs is, "life's just a game, you fly a paper plane, there is no end ..."

I just played the album yesterday, btw.

Ah yes, virtue.  You can add fear to that list.  It is the virtue that is currently trending best these days.

Seems better than having no virtue at all. You saw the word virtue and stopped reading. "Unreal imaginings of evil cause distress about the present, or fear for the future. The ideal Stoic would instead measure things at their real value, and see that the passions are not natural. To be free of the passions is to have a happiness which is self-contained. There would be nothing to fear—for unreason is the only evil; no cause for anger—for others cannot harm you"

Do you have support groups ?

You know you got me thinking.  Now we have two groups warning about end times.  Yours and the Biblically oriented.

According to A O C, we have IIRC, only 6 more years until it is over.

Your side is late to the party but you all are making rapid progress to overtake the other.  Who is going to win ?

Overall la Nina is better where I live but other parts of Australia are screwed by both. Do you want bushfires or floods?

I know you are being glib and trying to point out something bad, but it's really a shining example of our ability to do good things. On the other hand, you can happy(?) that the current political climate probably prevents something like this from happening now and we will all suffer the consequences.
