Covid-19 brought the world to a complete standstill, THE GREAT PAUSE, which gave a huge shock to the current unsustainable degenerative systems. We can, therefore, see this GREAT PAUSE and C19 as a blessing in disguise, where we can reflect on how we want to proceed with humanity in a positive way. In this mini-docu series, we explore where we are and which options we have to continue to live on earth in a way that makes sense. We review a post-capitalist society that provides for everyone’s basic needs on this planet, and that is actually within our reach today.
“We were all forced into The Great Pause, but now, as they beckon us, we have a choice – knowing more clearly than before just how empowered we are. We could dismantle our degenerative systems simply by us choosing NOT to go back.”
