Yes I believe so, not just how we work, but also what work we are doing. What we haven’t even started taking about – while everybody tries to stop the virus spread, tries to treat the patients, develop a vaccine – is that the restrictions, lockdown will cause an unprecedented economic, financial, political and social … More Do you think the Coronavirus will permanently change the ways in which people work around the world? How?
Yes it does and this is very important. The right diagnosis is half the cure! After all, while we are trying to prevent, treat the Coronavirus infection we really need to diagnose and start treating the much greater problem, the true “deadly virus”: our own inherently selfish, hateful, greedy egos. It is our own nature … More Is this pandemic really revealing the dark side of our humanity (hording goods, xenophobia, etc.)?
I think the virus outbreak shows us a brutally honest mirror, that our proud, modern Human society is already collapsed.

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?
