The Covid-19 virus is not a foe, but assistance!
Question from the Internet:
“Has Covid-19 been bad for just about everything, including the global political system?”
It depends on how we look at what’s happening. It is true that the he pandemic has upset about everything, turned our usual life upside down.
The economy is in crisis and so is the global political system, there won’t be many governments around the world that will survive the pandemic.
On the other hand both the economy and the political system was already in crisis long time before Covid-19 appeared on the scene. Most of the major crisis situations, national and international conflicts started before. If anything the quarantine period subdued most of the conflicts, “almost war” situations.
The pandemic is simply highlighting that we have been living in an artificial, inhuman and unsustainable Human system, that is doomed to fail like all previous egotistic, narcissistic civilizations before.
As Nature’s evolution is relentlessly progressing towards its final goal of most optimal integration of its whole system, Humanity is now under incredible pressure to start adapting to this process of integration.
Contrary to our popular belief, we are not above or outside of Nature, but as one of the species we are integral parts of the system and thus all the Natural laws that keep the crucial balance and homeostasis life depends on are obligatory for us as well.
So as the virus makes sure that we can’t ignore, reject our incompatibility with the global, integral world we evolved into, it actually helps us to make the necessary changes consciously, methodically, before worsening crisis situations, intolerable suffering will force is to do the same thing.
