Covid-19: Building a new Human society from the grassroots

The Coronavirus pandemic offers multiple lessons we could all learn from. In theory the present world leaders decision-makers, influencers should lead the changes as a result.

In theory, they should all recognize what a global, fully integrated and interdependent world demands: mutually responsible and mutually complementing cooperation, placing the well-being of the whole Human system above the selfish benefit of the individual and the nation.

But it is highly unlikely that this will actually happen. They are simply not educated and prepared for such a fundamental shift. These people can only think in terms of economic, financial, military progress, statistics, they do not have the ability, comprehension, skillset to think in a systemic, global manner, they can calculate only how to serve narrow self-interest, prolonging their power, improving their legacy.

Even now their only focus is on resuscitating the unsustainable, unnatural, excessive overproduction, overconsumption system with its ruthless, exclusive competition at each other’s expense, which will make everything only worse, making preventing, solving the increasing global problems impossible.

If we want true changes we need to initiate them “from below”, from the grassroots, building and strengthening small, closed, purposeful environments with the help of a unique, purposeful and practical educational method. These new “cells”, small societies will be built on very different, “Humane” foundations, making the positive mutually responsible and mutually complementing Human interconnections the most important since a viable economic and governance system can be built only on such “natural” connections.

Since only these small environments will have compatibility with Nature’s integral, interdependent system and its laws, they will prosper while the rest of the general global society — that is incompatible with Nature’s laws sustaining balance and homeostasis — will continue to stumble from one crisis to another greater crisis.

As a result, more and more people will abandon the sinking general ship and cross over to the new societies that will become the foundation of a better, safer, more equal and sustainable Human society.
