Covid-19: Ready for building a new civilization!

We were heading for our own civilization ending collapse, explosion before the pandemic following the usual recurring, vicious historic cycles in Human evolution.

Our unnatural, excessive, overconsumption socio-economic system is unsustainable, as it goes against Nature’s fundamental laws sustaining balance and homeostasis.

We destroyed normal Human interconnections, dismantled the basic building block of society the family.

We have become mindless, aimless through the incessant propaganda, brainwashing we receive through the paid, biased media and entertainment, while unemployment grows especially among the youth.

Nations are blindly inevitably sleepwalking towards wars around different geopolitical conflicts, receding natural resources, despite being only 80 years after the last world war, extremism, racism is growing, societies are breaking apart due to cynical, growing inequality.

We were already ripe for another great war or revolutions before the pandemic. Antibiotic resistance due to overuse exposed us to much worse, greater plagues many are warning about, predicting for a long time.

The virus stopped this self-destructive process, giving us an unprecedented chance to rethink our systems, life, our direction, meaning, Human purpose.

Right now we have a small window of opportunity to make changes and prepare for the time after the lockdowns, when we need to restart.

This is our first true free choice in Human history, this is a true historic turning point in Human evolution. It depends only on us if we grab the opportunity to take our fate into our own hands.

Do we blindly return to the previous self-destructing process after this “pause in the movie”, or we bravely, collectively turn towards a new path we will learn, practice, consciously experience together as evolution expects from us?!
