We can still prevent what’s coming!
As many suggest, we are heading for a seemingly inevitable Great Depression again.
If we do not make urgent, substantial — and unprecedented — changes in our societies, we will blindly repeat the events, processes of the 1920’s. 30’s and 40’s (in a much faster, condensed manner) going through another, greater Depression culminating in another, greater World War — on a truly global scale.
It does not matter how we try to reassure, justify, and fool ourselves. Human history is a helplessly recurring chain of vicious cycles that become increasingly shorter and their ending explosion increasingly more intense.
Even before the virus, we were already heading for a complete collapse of our system we stubbornly tried to keep alive with all kinds of artificial machinations for decades. The virus simply brought the inevitable forward.
But the virus also gave us a unique time to think, assess where we are, how we got here in order to make crucial changes that could divert us from the terrible tragedy that could unfold within a short time if we blindly follow the instinctively egocentric, individualistic, exploitative program in us.
We can already see the instinctive reactions, rhetoric preparing another Cold War that will inevitably lead to a real war as there is no other “historic solution” for a civilization that has run out of steam, goals. It would also serve some hidden agendas for reducing the Human overpopulation some — mistakingly — blame for our problems
Unless of course we awaken our unique Human ability for critical self-assessment and realize that the only true solution is changing ourselves, our own inherently selfish, individualistic, exploitative nature, program.
Only if we learn how to build mutually responsible, mutually complementing global connections above everything that tries to separate, reject us from one another, only then can we prevent the already visible global disaster around the corner.
From the COVID-19 virus, we have received the first truly free choice in Human history, giving us the option to stop the instinctive cycles and to take our fate into our own hands — together.
