Covid-19: It is time to start anew!

Yes, and this is the most important question: what are we going to be ready for after the lockdown?!

Are we going to be prepared, shielded enough to resist the predictable, inevitable onslaught of the media, marketing, entertainment industry to lure us back to “life” — more precisely to the modern slavery — we lived before?

They are already preparing their trillion-dollar bailout, stimulus packages for this purpose and although on the long run — more precisely within a few months — the machine will again hit a snag this way or another, at first there will jubilant announcements, sales galore, sports and cultural events to celebrate our ‘recovery”, while the Chinese are already warming their engines and their “made in China stamps” on every possible good, gadget, products we can imagine…

But now we have a free choice which free choice we did not have before.

As we are sitting in our forced holidays at home, surrounded by our families we have quality time with, we can suddenly, tangibly feel that what we have been yearning for, chasing 24/7 we actually do not need for a happy, fulfilling, healthy life. We can sense it realistically, directly that when our basic, healthy, modern Human necessities are catered for and we know that our families, friends are safe and healthy and we can spend time on building, sustaining our relationships, we actually do not need any of the cray, hysterical excessive menu we are offered day in day out, brainwashing us into zombies.

So we need to decide before the lockdown is over: are we allowing ourselves to be lured back into that modern slavery, incessantly producing and consuming goods we do not need and that harm us, robbing our life from us?!

Or perhaps we are ready to build a new, global, Human socio-economic system which is focused on producing healthy, modern, Human necessities for Humanity — and we have the capacity, ability to do so for much more than 8 billion people — while the rest of the time, energy is allocated to education, mutual activities.

These will be designed for teaching people about the globally integrated and interdependent Natural system we live in, which system’s laws are binding, and how through this education we can continue building and sustaining mutually responsible and mutually complementing interconnections, coordination despite our inherent individual and national uniqueness, differences which remains untouched.

Then we will acquire the ability to easily solve all our global problems and prevent new ones occurring since we will be compatible, aligned with Nature’s system.
