The crisis teaches us the importance of work as a team, be disciplined, organized, follow the rules and take into account the needs of the persons around us.
I think we will understand the true meaning of minimal sufficiency and hopefully have a better understanding of what is truly important to all of us.
However, like all crises, this too will pass, and when it does, like every challenging project, hopefully we don't forget the lessons we should have learned through it.
do not think there will be another side, the crisis (or better disruption) will prevail even if the corona infections are taken care of in 1-2 years. I do not think there will be a return to anything as it was before.
Look at middle ages pestilence, it enabled rational thinking, there were resources in abundance (since 1/3 of people died) and somehow we still see the consequences from it. Similar 9/11 or dropping the bomb on Hiroshima.
This is a defining moment for humanity, and combined with AI, biology, internet it will change political and economic systems.
My personal favorite scenario: in 20 years there will be no nations and borders anymore
I add a quote from Harari's article in ft.com, 20. March 2020
"Humanity needs to make a choice. Will we travel down the route of disunity, or will we adopt the path of global solidarity? If we choose disunity, this will not only prolong the crisis, but will probably result in even worse catastrophes in the future. If we choose global solidarity, it will be a victory not only against the coronavirus, but against all future epidemics and crises that might assail humankind in the 21st century."
Nuture is wisdom. This will change the way people and mainly nations in the whole world will interact together. Everebody must understand that "If you are doing well, I am doing well". This is the third warning. God save us for the fourth.
To challenge this out further, consider your ideas of the “new normal” across these perspectives. What are the common themes (i.e., new-normal themes) across them?
Sharing your views encourages others to challenge themselves on this question, and in so doing, helps us to delineate between what we feel (which may be causing anxiety) and what we know.
I’m also interested in seeing how the common themes differ by culture/country.
What were the first two warnings?
Interesting your question
In your opinion, what will the "new normal" look like?
Humanity has always overcome crisis.
