Covid-19: Life after the pandemic
For the first time in our lives, we do not need to passively ponder what life will be like after the Coronavirus pandemic. For the first time, we will be able to decide and implement what it should be like.
All the seemingly unshakeable leaders, governments, organizations, corporate businesses that have controlled our lives so far with their incessant brainwashing and propaganda through marketing, “entertainment” are going to collapse as a result of the pandemic and subsequent socio-economic crisis.
There is nothing new, or extraordinary in this since our old/present system was already on extended life-support even before the pandemic started. Covid-19 is simply providing the last, lethal blow.
If we are not preparing for this consciously, proactively — and I do not mean the useless, virtual bailout and stimulus packages that will be like makeup, cosmetic surgery for a corpse — by looking back and recognizing, accepting what has driven us into the collapse, we are looking ahead of a lengthy, violent, suffering filled transitional period.
It is very unique that we are going through the same process characters and the world went through in Isaac Asimov’s Foundation books. In that story, at the collapse of the fictional Galactic Empire people also did not believe that their “all-mighty” empire can break even when it was already breaking. So unique scientists offered a way to shorten the turbulent, violent transitional time ith their special method.
The end of the process — in Asimov’s books — is the reluctant, but very clear, undoubted recognition is that Humanity’s survival depends on unprecedented unity, mutual integration to the level of “planetary consciousness”.
As we look back at our old/present system, how individuals, leaders, nations reacted and still react to this present crisis, how we are literally killing ourselves in the lack of useful, sustainable connections, cooperation even in the face of a collective, global threat, we can see that this is where the problem is found, this is the problem that needs correcting.
Instinctively — as we are all born as individualistic, ruthlessly competitive, exploitative egotists — we won’t change. At the same time coercion, terror, or sophisticated trickery, brainwashing does not work either as history shows.
Thus we need the only tool that can change Human beings in a practical, sustainable way through positive motivation, drawing people to the changes willingly, out of full recognition of the necessity of the changes.
This tool is a purposeful, practical educational method that can show us in a practical, realistic and tangible manner why mutually responsible and mutually complementing cooperation offers better chances to survive than the proud, individualistic competition at the expense of each other.
Moreover, by doing so we will also become more adapted, compatible with Nature’s perfect, integral system and as a result we will organically scale down to a lifestyle based on true necessities and available resources — while the pandemic and subsequent socio-economic crisis will wipe out all the excesses anyway. Thus we will start a better, healthier, more peaceful and sustainable life with a qualitatively much higher collective intelligence, problem-solving ability.
And since we change through education, willingly we won’t even need to give up individual, national identities, uniqueness, talents as those can all be used for the multi-faceted, multi-colored “Human mosaic” which will have unlimited ability to develop, progress in Nature.
