Is this the world we always wanted? Are we moving towards World War III? Is this the reason United Nations was formed? We need to convince International Community that there is a looming crisis before there are pictures of starving babies. What we’re seeing, emergency after emergency, is that the international community does not get mobilised before there is an actual crisis.
Today’s wars kill and displace more people, and are harder to end than in years past. The choice before us is simple; Will we continue to subsidize the dirty fossil fuels of the past or will we transition to 21st century clean renewable energy?
Response to our crisis can be put in one word: revolution. A revolution in our priorities, a re-evaluation of our values, a re-invigoration of our public life and a fundamental transformation of our way of thinking and living that promotes a transfer of power from oligarchs and plutocrats to everyday people and ordinary citizens.
You can never change things by fighting the existing reality; to change something, make a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. To overcome poverty and the flaws of the economic crisis in our society, we need to envision our social life. We have to free our mind, imagine what has never happened before and write social fiction. We need to imagine things to make them happen. If you don’t imagine, it will never happen.
The biggest and most interesting crisis in the world is the human crisis, and it never gets boring. It goes back to Shakespeare. You don’t need a gimmick; it’s just man against man and their intolerance of each other. Our state is in crisis. Our people are hurting. Now is the time when we all must resist the traditional, selfish call to protect your own turf at the cost of our state. It is time to leave the corner, join the sacrifice, come to the center of the room and be part of the solution.
