Hopefully, we will learn the only thing we need to learn: how to build positive, mutually responsible and mutually complementing interconnections on a global scale above everything that separates us right now — nationality, personality, egoism, individualism, culture, religions, political following, social status, education…
We already have everything else, we have a planet that can cater to everything we need according to healthy, normal, modern, Human necessities, we have extraordinary technical abilities, intelligence, infrastructure.
But as the uncoordinated, inadequate, self-serving and self-justifying responses to the pandemic show, we still waste everything we have due to our inherently selfish, individualistic, exploitative program, when we instinctively want to succeed, survive at the expense of others and gain pleasure, satisfaction from the misery of others.
And our way of life is in decline, despite everything we have we are ready to self-destruct as we can’t rise above our blind instincts.
So hopefully the pandemic will provide the incentive, excuse to start learning how to interconnect — and by that collective survive — above and against ourselves.
