It's all theater
The present is before time was… (A Course in Miracles)

It is the ego need for a strong identity that is leading many to insanity

Deeply craving recognition and specialness, we make an identity out of our mental positions and affiliations.

You may be liberal because you believe in compassion and social justice, but then you go along with politicians who cheat and violate human rights.  You can become so identified with a particular profession that you do terrible things. Maybe you see yourself as someone who attends social events, bars, clubs, restaurants—so you are willing to be injected with unknown, lethal substances to continue to do so. You may identify as a good, law-abiding citizen who trusts and obeys authority, who watches the news, while failing to see all the unconstitutional rules and endless stream of harmful lies.

When these external sources of identity are corrupted, people become insane. All that is required is to get politicians to scare us and take away freedom. Get businesses to discriminate. Introduce propaganda into sports. Corrupt the healthcare system to cause sickness and death. Limit free expression on social media. Steal an election from patriots. My point is this: if you are still holding onto an external identity of any kind, this stuff will drive you into deep confusion and total loss of common sense.

The restoration of sanity is the disidentification with all external form so that your identity literally becomes perfect love, truth, and freedom.

Now it is not your identity that will ever be your source of specialness or uniqueness (which has never worked anyway). Now your true grandeur will be all that you learn, experience, and create as your best, perfectly sane, healthy self—a unique genetic mutation on a unique journey. You already were special, but perhaps the best version of you has been obscured by a false sense of identity.
