THE OLD NORMAL
Ways the Old Normal Failed
We're in the middle of triple linked crises: Climate Disruption, the Health Pandemic, and the Unsustainable, Unequal Economy. Particularly the COVID-19 Pandemic has laid bare the underlying systemic racism, an unsustainable economic system that has ravished our environment, created climate disruption, and so many other failures of the promise of the Declaration of Independence.
These three crises have made clear : We cannot go back to the old normal. With unsustainable destruction of our environment, an unsustainable economy, systemic racism, and a global pandemic we have to envision a new way to live in the future, because the future is being determined for us.
