The era of “one for all, all for one”
Question from the Internet:
“Which country faces the most credible existential threat nowadays?”
The uniqueness of our time is that we have evolved into a globally integrated and totally interdependent world. As they say, we all sit on the same global boat, we have entered the era of “one for all, all for one” even if we protest this, we want to ignore this.
This means that if one country is in existential threat, it means that we are all in existential threat, it works this way in integral systems where everything is intricately interconnected. If we needed any proof we received it through the pandemic, as we will receive more and more proof through other looming global problems, disasters, seeing how our global boat is sinking.
Thus our usual approach — that we try to succeed, survive at each other’s expense, that we think we can separate ourselves from certain issues, that we can avoid problems others have — has become totally futile.
If we want to save ourselves from a seemingly inevitable global meltdown — that can start from different, various reasons in multiple different locations — we can do that only together, through unprecedented, global and sustainable, mutually responsible and mutually complementing cooperation.
