Covid-19 opened our eyes

Question from the Internet:

“It’s clear we’ll live a deep economic crysis due to the pandemic. While this crysis reflects not only the virus action, but the way our economy works, will the virus be a escape goat to our economic manners?”

I fully agree with you on all counts. Although the virus worsened, brought forward the crisis, it didn’t cause it.

We are in a socioeconomic crisis because our old/present Human system (basically since the industrial revolution) had been based on reckless, excessive overproduction, overconsumption especially in the last few decades.

We are completely ignoring Nature’s laws of integration and the laws that sustain the fragile balance and homeostasis life and optimal development depends on.

Of course governments and businesses that live in their ivory towers, measuring life and the value of Human beings and society through material wealth, efficiency, productivity, GDP and stock exchange performance will use the virus as excuse for the crisis, and will pour some more trillions of dollars of “virtual money” into the markets, banks to resuscitate the dying system which has no future.

We can look at the Covid-19 virus as a reminder from Nature that we can’t stubbornly force our unnatural paradigm against it’s laws without consequences. So everything depends on how we react to this warning.

And since the present leaders, those who still benefit from the current arrangement won’t, can’t change, we have to start building a new Human system - while the old one keeps inevitably collapsing - from below.

We need to introduce a unique global, integral educational method that can help us in this rebuilding, using Nature’s perfect blueprint as template.

If we react properly the Coronavirus could become the best thing that happened to us, redirecting Human development towards the right, positive, constructive direction instead of heading for seemingly inevitable self-destruction.
