Creating a new “normal”

Humanity will have to create a new “normal” to progress towards to instead of returning to the “pre-Coronavirus” state.

First of all, even if we wanted we can’t go back to the “pre-Coronavirus” state. Our socio-economic system was already declining, we were already heading towards crisis, unemployment was increasing, the EU was falling apart and trade war, the oil-price war was brewing.

The question is where we take the template for this “normal” for?

Thus the problem is not who is working, but what we work for, what our level of production/consumption is.

Thus the best template we could take is Nature’s perfect template of balance and homeostasis, living within the optimal parameters of natural necessities and available resources.

If this is organized as a result of a unique, purposeful and practical educational method people would agree to join and contribute willingly, out of free choice, fully understanding that their success, health, and survival is intricately intertwined with the success, health, and survival of the whole — being integral parts of Nature’s all-encompassing system as a single species.
