For the 50th anniversary of #EarthDay 🌍
I dug out “Candi(e)d Watch”, 2017. 👁️🌻🌼👀
In this one, nature is watching us, humans, as our history unravels.
It feels more true now, with the Covid-19 crisis, than ever.
——
In these uncertain times, when systemic change is forced upon us, the question remains.
Will we be able to choose a path that is sustainable and socially just ?

We certainly live at a historic moment but we have to be as watchful as ever at what is going to be implemented. This is not a time to be dormant about it. Revolutions always start at the bottom and governments are nothing without the support of the base.

We need a green revolution, a social one and an economic one. The whole system is currently being teared down and building a new one back up, especially in a time of crisis, is bound to be complex and will take a few years. but it might just be the nudge to gear towards a better world.

While we might rejoice in the end of our current madness, we should not let our guards down and be careful at what we do next. —–
Don’t forget that the notion of economy is only an intellectual and societal construct, however natural ressources are a reality. 🌍
