The Reality of Tomorrow - a Fight for Survival

Ever since the outbreak of the still persisting COVID-19 pandemic and the stark revelations of existing social inequalities and bold biases among humanity, I've held that explicit knowledge of the carnage of the deadly disease would compel humanity in the post COVID-19 era to adopt the the means and ways necessary to restart human relations from a point of expansive empathy and global equality.

In addition, being more of a socialist, I've also held onto the dream that the post COVID-19 era could be one of atonement for those actors responsible for historical wrongs perpetuated upon humanity from slavery to colonialism and to occupation of foreign lands - the destruction of a Black race of families; the plunder of distant lands and the illegal occupation of Palestinian lands. I wishfully hoped for an ameliorated reboot of humanity post COVID-19 and the readily acceptance of a non-European nation, China, at the table of global decision makers. 

This unprecedented COVID-19, I thought, which at the time of writing according to data from Johns Hopkins University, had infected 18,614,542 people worldwide and killed 702,330, is draconian enough to demand favorable inevitably changes among all humanity. My Blogs on August 3 and August 4 also suggested necessary changes by humanity because of COVID-19.

And earlier today, Pope Francis confirmed similar thoughts in his Twitter remarks: "In the next few weeks, I invite you to tackle together the pressing questions that the pandemic has brought to the fore, social ills above all..."

While the Pontiff is clearly on point in terms of some matters in need of addressing post COVID-19; on deeper consideration, I however, conclude that the reality of tomorrow will include a great fight for survival by the people who have suffered centuries of social wrongs. This struggle could be violent because those who have historically benefited from the oppression of others will not easily forgo their fallible privileges. 

And that COVID-19 has brought the truth to the fore certainly affirms the existence of the truth prior to the pandemic and that the truth was not ameliorated then, clearly underlines the coming fight to right historical wrongs, post COVID-19.
