The Time is Now to Rise and Challenge the ‘Gigitisation’ of our World, Our Values and Our Lives!
Debunking the Pandemic of a World ‘Gigitised’
Have you, like me, ever wondered why is it that despite so much beauty and love all around us, the dawn, sunrise, sunset, morning chorus, flowers, blossoms, trees, to name but a few, families, friends, children and grandchildren, lovely books to read, poetry to recite, great, inspiring melodies to listen to, and much much more, we have so tragically built a very troubled world and at times very sad, fearful, anxious and depressing lives? Why are we even in conflict and war with mother nature and our sacred earth?
Is nothing sacred anymore? Are love, kindness, beauty, wisdom, peace and justice not worth fighting for anymore?
I suppose there must be multiple answers to these piercing questions.
However, to my mind, one answer stands out and that is: We all have been ‘GIGGED’ and in the process we have lost the art of knowing what it means to be human, and what it's that we are living for.
This ‘Gigitisation’ of our humanity is closely associated with the ‘Greed’ of a few, which are denying a just living to many.
If you think what I say has some meaning, and if you too, like me, believe that “Education is what makes us fully human”, then, this Blog is for you too.
If there is one thing I have learnt, it is: In Post-COVID-19 We need a Different set of Values and We need to Rediscover
the Value of Values and What it Means to be Human
A Reflection on the Global Pandemic of the Values-free and Inhumane Neolibearl Educational Model:
The World is ‘GIGGED’ Because of It!
If institutions, peoples, communities, societies, values,..., and everything else under the sun is ‘Gigged’, this cannot be for the common good, and people cannot contribute to the common good. No wonder the world is marching for values that give us insight into the world and upholds the common good.
