Individual and Collective responsibilities in times of crisis.
Welcome to the in-perfect humanity. The learning society. Welcome to mankind and the Planet Earth.
The species that has learned less from their own History than any intelligent life-forms ever should. We have gone through the Iron-Age entered the Industrial-Age and moved straight into this the Digital-Tech-Error. Every time somebody invents anything,like asbestos, plastics, Fossil Fuel Energy or fiber-optics-communications-systems,we the collective take the inventions and go crazy with it. We do not look at long-term consequences nor it’s impact on our environment. We are still as opportunistic as the first homo-erect that fought for a piece of meat in it’s fight for survival. We don’t give a shit whom or what we hurt in the process, as long as we get what we think we need to get out on top.
Computers really only arrived into our collective life-styles somewhere at the start of the nineties, yet still we integrated these systems like they are our new gods. And so, they are!? Everybody suddenly is an expert yet hardly anyone puts out the philosophical questions that need to be asked when building societies around these systems. As opportunistic and cowardly as most of us are we just want jobs, food, clothing and housing and are willing to sell-out to almost anything or anyone to get these.
Studies have been conducted that clearly show that digital systems have a preference for totalitarian run societies. They both work in clear definitions not obstructed by abstract questions. And although many studies have also found AI or Artificial-Intelligence not to be able to take-in human considerations in it’s decision making processes, we still believe it to be the new wonder-miracle that can solve all our problems.
You crossed the street trough a red-light. No matter that there were no cars and you obstructed or hindered no-one, nor put any lives in danger. Points will be deducted using your bio-metric makeup and your permanent record will be listed with this violation of law.
I even witnessed the Chinese guy who created the Social-Credit system say in an Arte_TV program,’IHuman’ , that they first had to control everything before there could be talk of granting any freedoms? Whaaatt?//
Now here comes inequality in play. Because we have been failing to provide the same education and living standards to all people everywhere, some are less able to deal with individual responsibilities and therefor still need some guidance. Not totalitarian-rule.
And that’s where it all went sour. When the viral outbreak started end of 2019, it started in China. Where or how it came about is to be determent in a later stage. And those responsible will need to be condemned as traitors to their own kind. What was clear that China as a totalitarian State had the possibility to clamp-down on it’s citizens, in order to contain the spread after they first ignored it too long. They simultaneously used Covid19 to further implement stronger surveillance and control systems. When you regard this from China’s historical perspective and their historic problems and uprisings from their populations in the center and back of the country and the new digital surveillance possibilities it is an understandable and very easy political choice to make.
In the Western more Democratic countries there had been a ongoing decline of moral values due to capitalist greed and corruption. This had resulted in an even bigger increase of right-wing Nationalist governments. The same as in the 1930’s when crisis also lead to the elections of Nationalist protectionism and the rise of the German Fascists that would lead us into WWII. So due to corruption followed by austerity measures the Democratic free-world had eroded health-care and educational systems as well as growing inequality among it’s populations. The neocon liberal right-wing leaders had created this crisis and feeding ground for what was about to hit all our societies. And it created more suffering than any virus could ever have done. And The World-Health-Organization was to play a very questionable role in the handling of this outbreak. From the start of the outbreak the WHO and it’s benefactors had their own visions in mind. They obviously were stuck in professional deformation or tunnel-vision. Otherwise their actions can only be called criminal. They did not consider the social implications on all our societies nor the economic ramifications. If they would have, we would not have been drawn into the suffering and deaths of many millions of people resulting from lockdowns, through famine and/or loss of income. All justified by the deaths of several hundreds-of-thousands that already mostly were in bad health.
The lack-off clear information about the outbreak from the WHO to government-officials and the scare-mongering from Governments and the now 24/7 itself repeating Mass-media was psychotic to say the least.
All over the World totalitarian governments used the outbreak to implement stricter control-systems on their citizens. And with the new technology they could. Meanwhile in the ,’Free World”,those same politicians that at first sold-out their countries and people to capitalist greed and corruption through privatization thereby eroding their democracies, these same politicians saw an opportunity to stay in power by creating more fear and also implementing more of those new technological surveillance instruments.
As in the days before WWII the people, divided into camps through fear or lack-of-knowledge. And again descent or criticism was shouted at and became illegal in some countries. The cowards backed by their governments of-course shouted the loudest again. Even jokes or sarcasm were frowned upon. The human intellect was again pushed into the dark corners of our societies by the actions and the manifested ideas of some elitist spoiled rich-kids that did not realize how their ideas would impact daily live or just did not care.
The result was rising Police-brutality, chaos, famine and overall growing Global social tensions.
Now; We could have used this crisis to benefit humanity and future generations. By implementing strict rules on production of energy, food and consumer-goods. By aiming at an accelerated pace of greener solutions and cradle-to-grave production methods. By taking away the vulture picking of our infrastructures by shareholders, CEO’s and venture-capitalism and severely punishing corruption and tax-evasion by multinationals. Thereby instantly creating a more even playing field for all of Earth’s citizens. Yet the first thing our narrow-minded,’leaders’, did, was to invest in heavy technological systems of total control with misleading schemes propaganda and scaremongering. This promises nothing good for the nearby future.
Many people that had started setting fire to 5G or other wireless systems, did so out of fear. And maybe subconsciously not even for the 5G system, but for the control this implementation would give to governments on their daily lives? For the 5G will at first only benefit professionals in certain specific branches not the average working folks. It will and is already used to separate our Global population into only two classes. The ruling-class and the working-class. With on top of it all the 1% new royalties and their spoiled off-spring in total disconnect and without empathy to humanity. This can lead to nothing good in the long-run. So we either restore democracy to healthy working platforms that benefit all of mankind and become role-models to the world again or get sucked into an age of totalitarian rule.
We do not StayStrongTogether that way.
We have to share and take the responsibilities for our actions on our fellow human beings and our environment. We have to mentally grow from these challenges and do better. We have to start thinking for ourselves and not put the responsibilities for our societies with some leaders instead of ourselves. We have to educate one another and carve a collective future for our species. It can be done,So,… Make It So!
