Covid-19: How will future generations look at the pandemic?
Hopefully, they will be feeling grateful.
They will remember the pandemic as a great turning point in Human development, allowing them to have a normal, truly Human life instead of increasingly becoming inhumane cogs, remote-controlled robots in an artificial, excessive overproduction, overconsumption society, or live in a dystopian world portrayed in movies like Mad Max or the Hunger Games.
