We are now much more aware that we are all in the same boat

We live in an era of science… [viruses] don’t have a deeper meaning… there can’t be anything more stupid than a virus… it’s stupid, it’s meaningless, and we need science to confront it.

We should act in a united way, helping each other, with resporators and so-on… we have enough of means, we should co-ordinate our activities, we should do it together… either this, or a very very sad world.

  1. I accept the spirit of Zizek.
    As human we are responsible for all the evil, not only exclusively WE but also our forebears .
    Imbalance we imposed in nature, environment… brought evil including Corona virus.
    Becoming committed to coordination of cosmos without hidden agenda of oppression is essential.
