New Abnormal

Wikipedia: New normal
A new normal is a state to which an economy, society, etc. settles following a crisis, when this differs from the situation that prevailed prior to the start of the crisis. The term has been used following the financial crisis of 2007-2008, the aftermath of the 2008–2012 global recession, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
During COVID-19 pandemic, the term new normal has an increasing use to refer the changes of human behavior changes during or after this pandemic. Doctors at the University of Kansas Health System anticipate that the pandemic will change daily life for most people. This includes limiting person-to-person contact, like handshakes and hugs. Additionally, maintaining distance from others or social distancing, in general, will likely stick around.

It’s called NLP. Programming through suggestion and words. New normal etc repeated often sticks in the psyche. That’s why we must take back the language. The new abnormal. We can both play the NLP game

“The new normal”.  BTW, never use this phrase.  It’s defeatist.  Use the term “The new abnormal”.
