It seems as I cannot get enough of the Corona circle. While I promised myself not to paint anything with a mask and instead concentrate on the feeling (loneliness in “Life in Time of Corona” and the rift between liberty and safety in “Liberty suspended“), I could not leave this feature out in the present motive, the “Covidiot”.
The urban dictionary defines a Covidiot as someone who ignores the warnings regarding public health and safety. Unfortunately, in Germany you see quite a few of these at the so-called “hygiene protests”, where all kinds of people are gathered including those with anti-Semitic conspiracy stories and those showing the black-white-red flag used by the Reichsbuerger-movement, who reject the legitimacy of the modern German state. While it is part of a democracy to let people protest who do not share your ideas, it is not democratic to walk alongside anti-democratic nazis.
