The future has changed.
As I write this, life feels very surreal, like watching a movie of some dystopian future, and any moment somebody’s going to spill popcorn down the back of my neck, and I will snap back to reality. But that’s not going to happen. No popcorn to the rescue.
The future has always been an uncertain place; nevertheless, we felt that things would progress in a reasonably logical fashion and even that we could exert some control over it.
That logical progression has been disrupted by the pandemic and there are things happening now which were inconceivable in the future we gave to ourselves a few months ago.
I look at what has changed for me, my community, my country and the world.
I really like some of those changes.
Which changes do you like?
Is it worth fighting to keep those good changes, even if the ‘masters of the old order’ try to pull the world back to what it was?
Why do they want things to return to what they were? Safety? Profit? Insecurity? Fear? Control? Survival?
How can you position the changes as more beneficial to them than the benefits they perceive in the old order?
Collectively, we have some choices to make. After all, the genie is out of the lamp!
What are you going to do?
Stay safe and well
My best wishes, Paul
