Looking into the mirror COVID19 shows

Do some people wonder if the pandemic is causing a deeper crisis then the financial crisis in 2008?

I think it is more correct to say that COVID19 showed us a brutally honest mirror, showing that in fact we haven’t changed, corrected anything since 2008.

Instead, we kept stubbornly pumping trillions of dollars of bailout, stimulus packages into a terminally ill system, which has no right to exist in Nature’s integral system, that works based on a precisely governed balance, homeostasis without which life isn’t possible.

COVID19 pointed out that “the emperor (our artificial, excessive socio-economic system) has no clothes”, and that the “emperor is already dead”, but nobody dared to say it.

Now that the plug was pulled from the life-support machine we won’t have any other choice but to build a new Human system.
Here we have a very stark choice.

We can try to rebuild the system like the previous one, first going through the usual civilization-ending explosion of riots, revolutions, wars, destruction, similarly to the recurring historic cycles we have gone through before.

Fortunately, we have a better option: learning how to build a global Human society according to Nature’s perfect, integral blueprint.
This means methodically developed, mutually responsible, mutually complementing interconnections, cooperation above inherent differences, despite the usual, instinctive distrust, animosity, criticism between people.

As we become similar, compatible with Nature through our mutual integration, we won’t have any problem accessing all the resources and solutions Nature possesses, and we will be able to effortlessly solve, moreover prevent the global problems we are suffering from at present.
