Thriving Business — Catering For Basic, Natural Necessities
We can look at it this way:
The virus pushed the reset button on Humanity’s computer and through the rebooting our original software becomes “accidentally” corrupted (although the unnatural, excessive, exploitative consumerist system, exclusive competition, survival at each other’s expense was corrupted all along), thus the operating system comes back to life in “safety mode”.
As most of the unnatural excesses, production, services we don’t need for a basic, normal, healthy, modern Human life will be wiped out, we will start living, rebuilding based on such basic, normal, healthy, modern Human necessities and available natural resources.
New Life based on Modern, Healthy, Human Necessities
Thus the industries which we need for these necessities — as long as they remain within optimal balance with Nature’s integral, lawful system — will thrive, while what we don’t need for these necessities will disappear.
As a result, Humanity will change its education, employment, recruiting people for jobs accordingly. Even automatization will be scaled back, so most people could be employed in all the necessary jobs, providing everyone with simple but effective and important, mutually contributing times, jobs so they would receive the necessary and well-deserved salary to comfortably cover their necessities.
This will mean less, but enough work for all, more time to focus on the truly Human activities: building, maintaining, constantly strengthening positive, mutually responsible, and mutually supportive Human relationships.
