The first reaction for many is to compare it with other basic institutions that are most familiar. Look at what might happen in those areas.
Take schools for example - an institution that keeps children through most of their waking hours and seeks to educate them. What happens when schools shutdown permanently? Parents will need to revisit their own roles in educating their children. Maybe later they will join with others to develop a better communal schooling system.
Take the Service Industry next - a whole chain of retain and commercial businesses that satisfy our needs and wants. If they shut down for good, our dependence on several items that we take for granted will be challenged. We may regress to an earlier era with its difficulties, but may reclaim some good as well.
Finally, consider the family - what would be considered the most basic of all human institutions. Families have been shutting down over the past few decades. While there has been reasonable angst about broken families and redefined families, there has been no serious soul searching for what takes over when the family is no more.
Our government will eventually reopen, providing the services that are important to those who lack them now. Hopefully they will also address the fiscal issues that have prompted this shutdown.
However, when it comes to the partial shutdown of our society, where will people look to for help? It is always best to go to God, the architect of our humanity to learn where we have departed from his design, rather than blame him for our choices that continue to take us down the path of ruin.
