What governments need to know about the crisis to succeed

Many people are wondering if their governments are capable of handling the present, unfolding crisis.

This will depend on the - very much questionable - ability of the present governments around the world to read the crisis right.

They can only respond properly if they understand the following:

  • We evolved into a globally integrated, interdependent world where each person depends on everybody else and we are all responsible for one another.
  • As a result within each country and in between nations we will have to build mutually responsible and mutually complementing interconnections, cooperation to achieve compatibility with Nature's integral system, and become able to solve problems through “collective intelligence”.
  • Moreover with our old/present, excessively overproducing, overconsuming economy, and a society that is built on ruthless, exclusive competition, success, survival at each other's expense, we break Nature's laws of integration, balance, and homeostasis.

Then the best, the immediate reaction is providing UBI for a temporary period to secure basic necessities for people.

Then they need to reorganize the economy to fit into the Natural, optimal parameters of natural necessities and available resources.

And the societies need to be reorganized to provide each with a minimal, mutually responsible, mutually complementing contribution towards society in return to appropriate salary - each according to their conditions and abilities.

Then we will be successful, otherwise, we will continue stumbling from crisis to crisis until nothing remains.
