The solution for Humanity gripped in fear
Some people are suggesting, feeling that we reacted to the Covid-19 infection out of fear, unnecessarily overreacting to it. The truth is, we are acting out of fear by default. Our whole Human system is operated by fear.
The most lucrative industries, activities — insurances, defense industry, health system and most of all politics — are all exploiting our fears. When we encounter a problem we do not solve it but we react with restrictions, red tapes.
Leaders, politicians push their agendas through scaremongering, election campaigns are not about positive visions, offering something pointing forward, but they scare us about the potentially disastrous scenario of their rivals winning.
Everybody is exploiting our primordial fear for our lives, possessions. This fear stopped our development, closing us into our dark, schizophrenic, introverted boxes with or without the virus.
This is because as our inherent ego exponentially intensified, developed through history, we became completely distrusting, hostile against one another. The virus initiated “social distancing”, but in truth, inside we have been doing “social distancing” for a long time.
As a result, we reacted to the virus — both individually, and nationally — out of fear, distrust as well, in a woefully inadequate, uncoordinated manner, trying to succeed, survive at the expense of each other as usual. And the greatest disaster is that in the globally integrated interdependent system we evolved into we would need to behave, act in the completely opposite way — through unity, mutually responsible and mutually complementing connections, cooperation.
We won’t escape our fears, we won’t regain our confidence in Humanity, in our (collective) future, unless we learn how to build such mutual connections above, against our inherently egocentric, selfish, individualistic reflexes, attitude.
It is this learning — through a unique, purposeful and highly practical educational method — what we need to focus on now as the only possible escape rout out of the pandemic and ensuing socio-economic crisis.
