The real measurement of a man’s character is how he stands up against wrong when he knows in his heart what is right

I suppose it depends on WHOSE misfortune we're talking about.
I mean, quite a lot of decent people were quite pleased at the downfall of Adolf Hitler, for example.
Of course, I know you're talking about the corona virus. If I were to derive pleasure from my neighbour catching the disease, that would be reprehensible. Happily, my neighbour's fine, by the way, and I'm glad about that.
As for the moron Donald catching the disease - I caution people about celebrating too early. I mean, he might not die.
As for sliding into decadence, the USA has been beyond hope for a long time now. It can't all come crashing down soon enough.
