Covid-19 and the future       printable version
12 Apr 2020 filed by editor - Editorial

Social and domestic life in most of the developed and sheltered countries of our world has been torn apart by the covid-19 disease and the lock down measures taken by governments.

The wealth of a nation depends on the health and well being of its people and not on their enslavement by capitalism and its goals.

The coronavirus tragedy unfolding in the US, which does not have a free national health service, will bear sad testimony to that.

The same scenario is also unfolding in the UK, which once had one of the best free national health services in the world but which has been drastically under resourced by successive governments over the past decade and more.

In the less developed and less sheltered countries the suffering caused in the main by other people continues unabated - except those suffering must now also face a pandemic.

Humanity is truly at a crisis crossroads with few, if any, avenues of escape.

We are not a pleasant species to ourselves when we find ourselves feeling backed into a corner, as human history undeniably shows.

The only way out of the mess is for us all to work together as a cohesive species and try to forge a true global balance between nature and the survival of civilisation.

At this present time such a reality appears further away than the ship smoke disappearing below the far horizon.

Can we pull the ship closer?
