I have always been the greatest optimist in the world, I never waste energy on what has happened that I can not change, spilled milk, move on. I believe this pandemic however bad it has been will produce some silver linings. diminish the carnage of war in the Middle East and North Africa. an end to capitalism – capitalism only works by creating demand for goods, with so many unemployed around the world, there will be no disposable income so no demand for goods, we will not in future be able to fly around the world if and when we please. Communities will come closer together for survival, we see it already. We have a unique opportunity to make the changes you speak off, we cannot, we must not go back to business as usual – lessons taught – hopefully learned. Stay well, my friend.
