Inclusive solidarity


Covid-19 may not only be teaching us to respect non-human animals – because if we had done that, the disease would not have crossed over to humans – it may also force inclusive solidarity on us.

Because the disease does not care whether you have 5 pounds in the bank or 50 million.

It may turn into a whopping a Zen teacher that shows us that we all have the same needs underneath our appearances and in spite of our accoutrements or lack thereof.

And it’s also accomplished a whopping temporary reduction in air pollution and emissions. There’s gotta be a lesson in that as well, not only because air pollution makes people more vulnerable to this disease.
