COVID-19 pandemic is a “portal”—a “gateway”—to a new world

 It may be time for us to start thinking of #GlobalWarming as a "Health issue" in the same way that we recognize Covid-19 as clearly a health problem and issue.

Daniel Christian Wahl has pointed out that, "our 'unnatural capitalism' needs to make our language commons which is the means, mode and medium of our communications whole again, so that we mean what we say and say what we mean with the least doubt, uncertainty and ambiguity as is possible."

"In the spirit of the language games being played by the elite ruling class to manufacture and engineer consent and hate, when would anti-life activities, like pollution and despoliation of our planetary and social life support systems and deprivation of universal human life necessities provisioning be seen as bona fide hate crimes and crimes against humanity and applied and implemented and enforced in and by our local, regional and international laws?"

“(we can) walk through it, dragging the carcasses of our prejudice and hatred, our avarice, our… dead ideas, our dead rivers and smoky skies behind us. Or we can walk through…ready to imagine another world. And ready to fight for it.”
    - Arundhati Roy

the COVID-19 pandemic is a “portal”—a “gateway”—to a new world. “Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next.”

(Covid-19) underlines the folly of humans battling with each other—the horrible human proclivity to war, the folly of pouring national treasuries into armed conflict.

“Seen from space, the Earth has no borders. The spread of the coronavirus is showing us that what we share is much more powerful than what keeps us apart. All people are inescapably interconnected, and the more we can come together to solve our problems, the better off we will all be. One of the side effects of seeing Earth from the perspective of space is feeling more compassion for others.”
    - former U.S. astronaut Scott Kelly
