A Federation of Humanity, Collaboration in the Age of Corona
We were a Global Village, an Integrated World…. Only six weeks ago!
Then fear in the name of Corona struck..
… And today, we have shut down countries and cities, retreated into communities- raising protective walls but feeling more fearful within these walls.
Truth is that Corona or the next global challenge cannot be defeated through silo-ed, piece-meal and country-by-country responses.
There are surpluses of medicines or nurses in one country and a dire need in the next. Reality is that if one country’s need is not tackled then its suffering will have a domino effect on the other. Therefore we need a global response…..a global governance mechanism to deal with such challenges.
The UN should have led this initiative but has failed. We need an evolved supra-national organization, less politicized, less about power dynamics of individual countries and centered around all of humanity.
