Changing Things as They are

They said, ” You have a blue guitar, You do not play things as they are.”

The man replied, ” Things as they are Are changed upon the blue guitar.”

The Man with the Blue Guitar – Wallace Stevens

For most people change begins with the idea that the world is not okay as it is, but despite protests against Neoliberalism after the Great Financial Crash in 2008 the best known movement that arose at that time – Occupy Wall Street – which coined the term ‘ the 1% and the 99% ‘ failed to develop sufficiently to crash the system . But the Coronavirus has achieved that in matter of a few months on a worldwide scale. So here we are faced with a difficult choice : either we accept the world as it , that is with the existence of the Coronavirus, whatever that means, as it develops out of the emerging future, or we don’t and hope for the projected future of the Neoliberalism virus.
