The possibility of a return to norms was the main focus of many election commentators in the aftermath of Biden's win. CNN’s Christiane Amanpour and Van Jones talked about how we have become “insufficiently shocked” by people who trample on our norms. Even Hillary Clinton talked to the New York Times about how damaging the last four years has been for our “norms and values”.

NORMALITY VOICE OVER TEXT — Script by Silvia Susanna

Today, we all claim to come back to normality.

But what is normality?

Normality is a conflict carried on by force of knowledge of the physical and material world gained through observation and experimentation

Normality is an act or state of looking forward or anticipating.

Normality is established in the area of production, distribution, and trade, as well as consumption of goods and services by different agents.

Normality is the retention of information over time for the purpose of influencing future action where everything that currently exists and will exist can be categorized: as permanent, meaning that it will exist forever, or temporary, meaning that it will end.

Normality is systematic as a small infectious agent that replicates in the human organism. It also plays a factor in motivation, adaptation, and reaction to the environment.

Within normality, any event that is going to lead to an unstable and dangerous situation brings a feeling of strain and pressure.

Normality becomes a method of analysis that automates model behaviours.

Normality is the system of principles or rules that uses arbitrary sounds in conventional ways with conventional meanings.

Normality is the process of acquiring new or modifying existing knowledge, behaviours, skills, values, or preferences.

Normality is the phenomenon in human societies of designating some actions or outcomes as good or desirable or permissible, and others as bad or undesirable or impermissible.

Normality is implemented in language, perception, memory, attention, reasoning, and emotion.

Normality is a predictable form, a describable plan, an established procedure, a regulated order, a structured uniformity, a coded pattern.

Normality is a loop Normality is a loop Normality is a loop Normality is a loop
