We are still lacking mutual responsibility!

Question from the Internet:

“What do you want to get off your chest today about COVID-19 and the lockdown in your country and internationally?”

Regardless of the numbers and whether the reactions, lockdowns, restrictions see justified, whether we believe in the seriousness of the pandemic or we think it is used to promote hidden agendas, there is a global infectious disease, infecting, killing vast number of people worldwide.

So I can’t understands why people don’t feel their mutual responsibility towards others in relation to keeping social distancing, wearing masks.

It is not only about whether I could be infected or not, but it is mostly about me not infecting others!

Any of us can be a silent carrier of the virus, potentially killing others by passing it on by ignoring the precautions!

We really need to make extra effort to rise above our usually selfish, egocentric, subjective attitude towards the world, as in our globally integrated, fully interdependent circumstances we are absolutely, mutually responsible for each other’s well-being!

I understand that this doesn’t come naturally, since we are programmed only to care about, look after ourselves. Now with the lessons we can learn from the virus, we need to consciously, methodically learn the Natural laws of existence in an integral system.
