The reason why I am focusing so much on electricity and mobility is because the world will not become a better place just because we all have a pandemic going on now. It doesn't postpone all the other problems we have. Imagine the pandemic spreading in Africa and masses migrating from there. Some countries there have already a huge plague of locusts. The media just mentions it randomly because it's in the "third world".
Funny enough people in Europe are upset about using the word "Africa" or naming a cookie from Bahlsen company "Afrika", but they use the wording "third world" freely, which in my eyes is a discrimination in itself. The western countries are good in closing their eyes when it comes to Ebola or Zika virus but now we have the pandemic in our own countries. Wouldn't that be the beginning of all countries joining together in concerted efforts, since we are one human race? Nope.
They close borders and separate from each other, even the European took care only of the under-aged kids from the last flood of migrants from the Syrian war at the turkey/greek border. Greece has to send back the others.
Can we do that with a million people coming to our borders?
A different political climate has emerged, more tensed, because everybody knows that one country alone cannot take responsibility for the problems we have as a whole.
And we have now problems as a whole, because we have a pandemic going on. Some countries can reject responsibility for global warming with ease. But with a global pandemic it is more difficult to take that away rhetorically.
A single earthquake can now cause a disaster globally because we have a weakened infrastructure.
Things that we could cope with in the past may cause unwanted chain reactions now.
Just a thought. I wouldn't post it elsewhere because I'm not into doom and gloom. But I think we have all become too familiar with the stability we enjoyed in the past few decades.
