The pandemic “only” highlighted the evolving socio-economic crisis
Question from the Internet:
“Is the link between coronavirus and the ongoing economic recession real, imagined, or exaggerated?”
The ongoing socio-economic crisis has been brewing for decades. But we have been ignoring it, covering it with bailout, economic rescue packages, pouring - mostly virtual - trillions of dollars into the system to stop it collapsing.
But since we have been paying for debt with even greater debt, since our excessively overconsuming system is unsustainable in a Natural system that is based on strict, unforgiving laws that control balance and homeostasis, the collapse has been inevitable.
The pandemic “simply” brought this collapse forward, preventing any further “cosmetic surgery”, “kicking the can down the road”.
Most people still try to ignore the very obvious signs, hoping to “return to normal”, even if there was nothing normal about life how we used to live before.
Being integral parts of Nature’s system “normal” means following Nature’s blueprint of mutual integration and a lifestyle within the optimal parameters of natural necessities and available resources.
This is the message, lesson the pandemic has augmented, reinforced. If we can’t, don’t want to accept, learn this lesson, we will continue our seemingly inevitable march towards self-destruction.
