Over the past ten years or so I remember being aware that people were talking a lot about environmental pollution and the destruction of nature and animal habitats in relation to capitalism. I distinctly remember making a mental note that nobody was really engaging with issues around how humans were going to be affected in the long term. That always troubled me. We really do not own the place. This pandemic is waking us up to that. We’ve probably reached the point now where we need to go to Indigenous cultures, cap in hand, and learn how we can fix this. Of course, the big corporations are not going to like what they learn, but if they continue along these destructive lines, there will be no point in having a global economy because they’ll be nowhere to spend that precious money that they are so obsessively focused on making.
