The helpful COVID19

The Coronavirus helps us greatly, we could even say it is life-saving - of course not to those who are losing their lives from it, but for Humanity in general.

There are cases in medicine, when patients suffering from long, chronic illness have a routine blood test, X-ray it other investigation which reveals a previously unknown, sinister disease. But as a result the disease still can be treated without becoming untreatable.

The COVID19 pandemic is such a shocking revelation, showing us our own, hidden “Human disease”, which has been consuming us for millennia but remained undetected!

After watching the terrible, inadequate, still ongoing reactions, “solutions” from leaders, experts, the total desperate helplessness, all running around like headless chickens in the face of a moderately severe infection, how both individuals and nations reacted with the usual, immediate, instinctive attitude of surviving at the expense of others, how now everybody wants to run back to the excessive, hedonistic, narcissistic life we had before like addicts…

I don’t think anybody has any more doubts now, that we are consumed by our own egos, insatiable need to fulfill ourselves immediately regardless of the consequences, without any concern about what happens next!

The thinking time provided by the quarantine woke many people up, it also have us a hint of a healthier, sustainable, natural way of life focusing on Human connections (despite social distancing) while allowing Nature to recover from Human abuse.

Thus the only question is now, “we know the diagnosis, and we are all sick, so what is the treatment?!”

And with the help of this education we will also naturally, without coercion scale down to a lifestyle based on healthy, normal, natural necessities within available Natural and Human resources.

The pandemic will be remembered as a positive act from Nature, being us to turn Human development around with a relatively small cost compared to the other options of world war, revolutions, total socio-economic collapse, even worse plagues due to antibiotic overuse…
