Coronavirus: Recraft a society that values work and aspiration

“We truly do have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to recraft the kind of society we want to be and the type of economy we need to achieve it.”

“We must be an aspirational society that rewards hard work and puts money in the pockets of ordinary Australians, and an entrepreneurial society where we can keep and attract the best and brightest.”

Jennifer Westacott  (The Australian 27/4/20)

The writing was on the wall a long time ago. We have no borders, just a barrier to problems starting in other places of the world or mother nature now doing what it was meant to do to retain the balance required to sustain this world through it natural means that we humans see as destructive but removes what no longer is needed to help restart what is required to sustain life on this small planet.  We now have the technology and understand that we need to change. but we did not have the maturity to understand why we needed it now. Due to 20th-century silo thinking leadership that allows money and self-interest to drive the agenda and not economic and business 101 based on 21st-century sustainability thinking.  That we have two realities. no border and why we need to the unit as a Global community structure. Some say we do that through the UN. In reality like all things created under 20th-century silo thinking we now need to restructure based on sustainability thinking.  that remove money and self-interest from the headed of the table to being able to address key problems when they start not after they spread.   Yet not remove freedom of choice. That will require an affordable Global 5G communications system and a new Global community structure based on a Global Health system and with it a Global problem-solving approach. no longer based on money or self-interest but addressing problems using innovation and collaboration  Not remove the benefits of freedom of choice and one rule. dealing with humans. Too much of a good thing always ends up to be a bad thing and too much of a bad thing and only a united community can address..
