Kindness is to Care and Caring is to be Kind. Sadly this is what our Values-free World has Forgotten.
To survive and to lead a better, healthier life we need to re-discover the values we once knew and held dear!
‘Covid-19 unintentionally attacks the very premise and idea of neoliberal principles.’
‘The social contract has been all but eliminated while notions of the public good, social obligations and democratic forms of solidarity are under attack...Neoliberal capitalism is the underlying pandemic feeding the current global shortage of hospitals, medical supplies, beds and robust social welfare provisions...The financial crisis of 2008 made visible the plague of neoliberalism that has for over 40 years ravaged the public good...Crises can have multiple outcomes resulting in a resurgence of resistance movements at numerous levels willing to fight for a more just and equitable society.’- Henry A. Giroux , The COVID-19 Pandemic Is Exposing the Plague of Neoliberalism
‘The sad irony is that while the UK and other countries are experiencing a crisis of care, care may be precisely what is needed in order to ward off the major looming catastrophes of our time.’- Catherine Rottenberg, University of Nottingham
Think about it, we may all get sick, we will all get old, weak and vulnerable. We will all need love, support, empathy, caring and humanity.
It is, thus, incumbent on us, to find out more on why and how there is this pandemic crisis in Caring in the world and how it may be reversed.
