Well it seems the Chinese managed to contain the virus with reasonably short time although we still don’t know the natural course of the outbreak. But in general coercion, forcing people to comply doesn’t work, as people instinctively rebel. Moreover for such draconian restrictions to be effective people would need to trust their leaders, and … More Should individual freedom be reasonably suspended and retargeted during moments of crisis?
I think this is the logical outcome, and since we are overall an intelligent species, with a unique mind capable of critical self-assessment, initiating self-change when necessary, there is a very good chance that the final outcome of the virus outbreak will be positive, revolutionary! I think there is already an overwhelming awakening “from below”, … More Do you think society will return closer together after this international quarantine?
There is a chance for that but it depends on how we react to it. So far there is no reason to believe that the virus outbreak itself will enter history. But since it is showing us things which we suspected, talked about before but didn’t feel on our flesh, now this very direct impression … More Will the Coronavirus scare make history?
Question: What are some basic things in society, that if taken away, would send the world into chaos?

Answer: Because they do not remember what socialism looked like, most people in the West never lived in socialism. All they see is that capitalism does not work, so they think we should try its “opposite”. But none of our “isms”, … More The Failure Of “Isms”
Question: How can we save the world before it gets too late? Answer: We can’t save the world before we fully understand what’s wrong with it. And finally it seems that we started to understand that there is nothing that could be achieved with political, economic, social or military means, since the root problem for … More Saving The World By Changing Ourselves
Question: Does it make sense to have children in a world that seems to run towards an abyss? Answer: I fully agree with you. It seems we are helplessly sleepwalking towards a “mutually assured self-destruction” which can be triggered from multiple reasons in multiple locations. In this situation it seems absolutely cruel to bring children … More Educating Human Children
Question: Do you think our generation is going in the right direction? Answer: No, and even quite a few previous generations didn’t either. We are actually going in a very bad direction, towards self-destruction as a result of our inherently selfish, egoistic, excessively consuming “cancer-like” nature. And while Humanity has been behaving “badly” through many … More The Misguided Generation
