Our species going through challenging times. And like all challenging experiences, we have to extract our lessons in order to continue stronger. 

I believe we need to diagnose the current situation without any sugar coating. For that, It is essential to see what we could have done and what we are doing.

And of course, is the fundamental structure of our approach to humans and life in general on the planet needs to be reviewed? That also deserves questioning.

10 Deadly facts about coronavirus:


  1. Unfortunately, COVID 19 showed to our ‘civilization’ that, especially starting from WHO almost non of the political, social, or other unions like the UN, EU, or even NATO have any crisis protocols for a pandemic that can affect either part or whole of the planet.
  2. There are only wise but individual exceptions like Japan, S. Korea, Taiwan, Germany, and a few others among 220 countries.
  3. No countries signed any common protocol of action for the continuation and sustainability of the human and life in general on the planet against a global health threat.
  4. Once again, we saw that our global society is too fragile and getting even more, against nature's routines.
  5. No social, health or economic models or simulations have studied prior to the rise of a pandemic in any country other than Bill Gates's, which was not taken seriously by relevant institutions.
  6. There are no national and international standards to act on for such a pandemic like travel restrictions, schools, borders, health and food basics, or sustainability of supply chain and production. 
  7. Every government has its own experimental approach which produces a non-calculated risk for its own and for the rest of the world. Recall what the governments of the UK and US have demonstrated in the first phase of the pandemic. Also, the uncertainty around the masks couldn't get clear for five consecutive months.
  8. There was a dangerous panic across the governments. Many of them aggressively seized or bribed other countries' shipments of medical material which may dangerously lead to a battle! Medical supplies fell into the black market and governments had to ban sales or punish opportunists.
  9. Even after six months, there are no international crisis desks formed by health ministers/ directors of countries that share best practices, needs or organize any cooperation by gathering on a weekly basis under the organization of WHO.
  10. There was almost no comprehensive strategic health infrastructure management studied by international institutions. Fundamental requirements of a global health threat like intensive care units, ventilators labs, PCRs, or production of disposables like masks, gloves, etc. were not planned or foreseen.

I believe this level of preparation needs a totally different approach and life philosophy to the (human)life on earth.

For that we need to shift our focus; as humans, we are fragile species just like the rest of the life on the planet. Life is a sophisticated phase of evolution that has to be treated with supreme value.

At this point, it is essential to remember that without clean air, water and food there will be no life on the planet which is all in danger with known reasons for some time now.

And also looking from a distance, it is pretty difficult to define what is alive and what is not on the earth like a glass of seawater or soil that contains billions of life forms. That is simply because living beings are dependent to nonliving matter which needs to be treated by care and balance.


Simply by being the provider and platform of life, we shall define our planet as alive.

Alive like one big complex organism.


And also, we shall remove our species from the center of attention and start working on creating an integral balance with our surrounding universe, instead of exploiting the resources as if they will not come to an end.

While doing so we need to treat the life on the planet equal and preserve the dignity of every human being.

This of course needs reforming at our approach to human life with all of its aspects such as peace, safety, food, shelter, education, work, democracy, and higher human needs such as art.

Providing these standards at hometowns of people before they become refugees.

This will not be realized via the mere economic approach of capitalism. Even the epistemology of capitalism excludes other vital components of a sustainable living planet while putting capital and economy into the center of the philosophy.

We need to come out with another term that embraces the fundamental aspects and values of life and existence and underline balance, sustainability, and lean.

It needs to be wholistic while preserving the integrity of life, planet, and humans. Because we have seen that if we don’t take care of the most vulnerable we become vulnerable.


Why not providing funds and sanctions in return to the settlement of life and preservation of the environment

Why not providing basic food, shelter, and education for ALL, instead of spending our funds to mass destruction weapons, luxuries and access consumerism. With ten years of spending we can take care of every human being’s fundamental rights. Ten years of mobilization and focus on the integral-ization of life will bring peace, equality and abundance to our planet. Every child, woman and man deserve a decent life and to live that life with dignity.

Today a virus has shown that our specie is living an immature and spoiled life who needs to get himself together and take responsible steps towards adulthood.

We can form our relations with an interconnected and interdependent level among every human being. We can reform our dysfunctional national and international institutions.

Why not working on a single world flag that will standout nearby every country’s own flag. A flag that is created for the sake of a universal reference, above political symbols.

Maybe we can remember that we belong to one, big but single living organism called ‘earth’.

And yes what is our planet called? Mars is Mars in 200 languages while the earth has different names for every language.

So together with one flag, I believe we need a single name to call our planet.

That way like John Lennon once said we may imagine the inhabitants of this planet that carry their common flag and the same name will develop a common belonging which would be a peaceful start to develop the following values on it.

We saw that trillions of dollars can be raised in a single month against a close threat to a modest percentage of life on the planet. Imagine the funds, solutions, creativity and mobilization that people may rise if we can initiate a global campaign.

The problem is that we need to see the wars, hunger, refugees, global warming and pollution as the same truck that is as close as coronavirus which may raise this fall again. And like having no efficient crisis protocols for this pandemic we aren’t going to find a chance to be sorry if these other vulnerabilities hit us.

Today we have a chance to be more sensitive and focus on our common problems. Hope this global threat can bring the utmost awareness and a collective intention to save our planet.
