According to Machiavelli, “the reason there will be no change is because the people who stand to lose from change have all the power. And the people who stand to gain from change have none of the power.” Poverty Inc.
For change to happen in the world first you have to change yourself. In order for you to change you need to have a need for it. Why would you want to change your life? You live in a great place. Have a great job. Have wonderful holidays throughout the year. Would you want to change that? I don’t think many people want to change that.
However, coronavirus have changed that. You may no longer think you have a great job because you might have lost it. Peoples’ lives depend on jobs and if you are one of those you have a huge problem in your hands. Many people have lost jobs and have mortgages to pay. My neighbour is out of job for at leat a year. She works in a tourist industry in Spain.
The forced actions of coronavirus will not change people. In fact, it will make people more aggressive to get back into work. In London, the city hasn’t stopped. The property experts say the property market will not change a bit. Small terraced houses will still cost an arm and a leg. People will still be mean and think the best of themselves.
The rich will stay rich and poor will stay poor. In fact the gap might even become a greater gap than ever before. In order to change you have to start thinking on how you can impact the world. What actions can you take to make the world a better place? What can you do to contribute to the world where it needs help?
My dream has been to build sustainable communities around the world. I don’t want to be another charity. I know charities have the best interest in their heart however, they can do more harm than good. Charities belong to a massive institution that is run by powerful people. Would they want to change anything in their comfortable lives?
There’s an in-depth documentary on charities and the help from the west called Poverty Inc. It clearly explains how the charities work and I wrote a blog post not so long ago.
Coronavirus will not change the existing problems of the world. Coronavirus has hit the world and its hit felt globally.
Currently if you live in Europe or anywhere else in the world you cannot help yourself to think how this virus will affect your life. How it will affect economy and so on? Maybe our local way of thinking needs to become global way of thinking? It’s not enough to just think about Europe and how Europe is going to suffer or is suffering. This virus doesn’t care if you are rich or poor.
Nothing will change after this virus. People will go back to work and ‘normal’ life will return. Old fashioned bosses will want to see people working in an office rather than work from home. For remote work to happen needs big company egos to drop and see the effectiveness from working from home. Coronavirus will not have changed that.
The only way the world will change is when people start to think of how they can help the world. If people continue living in their small minds and world the world will stay the same no matter the disasters. When people start to think it’s not about them and it’s not how it makes them look. The world is not about you…I would like to think the world will change for the better but I am naive and a dreamer.
I would love that there was no gap between the poor and rich. I’d love everyone to be equal. However, we are all equal. Capitalism have made us believe we are not equal. We create circumstances not the other way around. If we all adopt the view of ‘I am a powerful being’ and I can help others then there’s hope. Then, there’s a brighter tomorrow and world.
Love and Light.
