Umair Haque analyzes the current moment as the end of the first chapter of human history – not only due to the coronavirus pandemic, but also due to the convergence of many other crises. According to the author, it is necessary to understand the serious implications of this moment and start to act as a mature species – otherwise, we can go back collectively.

“(…) If we make this choice, we begin to write the next chapter of human history. We transform, from the larva of a predatory-exploitative species, to the butterfly of a beneficent-constructive one. A species that is something more like the guardian and protector of all things noble, good, and beautiful — whether democracy, dignity, truth, justice, or life itself.”
