What COVID-19 means for us as a species

The bad

First of all, it’s a tragedy that people are dying in large numbers. And it’s concerning that people don’t feel safe anymore as they have been (most of them) accustomed all their life.

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.”

— Charles Darwin

The opportunity

The bad manner in which the world functions isn’t new. It’s just that this crisis has revealed it to the public that we don’t stand united and our facilities and institutions operate too much by paperwork and protocol and too little by human urgency.

In a time of domestic crisis, men of goodwill and generosity should be able to unite regardless of party or politics."

— John F. Kennedy
