    I am not really in disagreement with your point about people will always be arguing that others are being treated unequally.

    I think that the problems were around long before Covid_19. In a previous thread comment I said that at times I wonder if the Covid_19 situation and the whole lack of its management is in some ways a deliberate strategy to reduce population control. This may be a bit conspiracy theory but I do believe that there is more going on politically than portrayed in the media. I question it all really.

    I would also say that I am not a complete optimist but I would like to see possible positive ways forwards. I get depressed and my whole approach is about personal and global healing. We all have biases and the need to acknowledge them is important.

    I don't believe we can ever be perfect or that an exact utopia can be created but I would advocate a philosophy which can rise above the egoism of politics. I think we need a whole new type of vision and world leaders and if enough people awakened who knows what could happen. Surely, it is something to strive for rather than the antinatalism which seems to be at the forefront of this site. Surely, better ways of achieving sustainable living are more creative than collapsing into despair and nihilism.

    The pandemic was a plate full of arguments for the media and for politics. Quarantine was one more way for the state to demonstrate its strength over the population. Step by step, you'll eventually destroy the world...

    It is good that you are optimistic, as this will be the necessary mindset when the bad times come. I'm not trying to appear apocalyptic or pessimistic, but, by my studies, we are very close (1) or to the end of our current way of life and not for the better or (2) close to the total collapse of society. Between the two, I still don't know which one will be the real one.

    I do consider think we are already in a post-apocalyptic age. The people I know are already in day to day survival mode.

    At times I am tempted to cave into depression and despair on a personal level and in interaction with the daily world. But something inside of me, the life force perhaps, drives me onwards to struggle for a better way to live.

    I hope that you are not right that the worst is yet to come.

    We are all tempted by giving up daily, but the grace of existence is being able to let time feel the anguish of waiting for your eventual death.

    Me too friend...
