Could we argue this is generally the case, even in non-crisis times? Perhaps the crisis just strips away the pretenses."In a crisis the true facts are whatever other people say they are. No one's knowledge is less secure than your own."

The best we can do is evaluate the signals we receive from these other psyches, but ultimately the signals propagate from psyche to psyche, each psyche a psychic system.
