YouTube not being available is not a crisis of any sort.
Unless that's how you make your living. Then it's a real crisis and millions make their living off YouTube patronage.
if you know anything about the 2016 election, it was an information war.
So yes, youtube being down is a crisis because it keeps the true information from getting out and leaves us with the BS they show us on the Tv news, the real fake news.
I use it all the time for instructions on how to fix, install, or otherwise complete work. If I had needed it at the time it would have been a serious problem.
