It is all too easy to sound negative when you tell the truth about what the Government is doing and what it has done. But if you can look beyond the pain and suffering that their errors and mistakes are going to cause, it is possible to visualise how things could play out to improve life for us all in the UK and also for everyone across the World beyond.
For too long, money has been the only thing of importance in every part of life and business. But since the COVID-19 Pandemic began, that shibboleth has at worst began to be changed and at best broken as we and the people in the world around us awake to what the World, our Country and our communities have actually become.
In its ignorance of the responsibilities that it actually has, our Government set off a chain reaction on the day it imposed the Lockdown and then chose to follow up with a series of measures that have really helped nobody other than to hold off the misery they have inflicted on at least some until another day.
The world that we knew up until the middle of March 2020 no longer exists. Many people have been so affected by the concept of social distancing and the mantras of ‘stay at home, save lives’ and ‘protect the NHS’, that they will not be thinking of returning to the workplace anytime soon. Others have lost jobs and lost businesses – or soon will do, and the impact of the debt that will be inevitable for so many will become all-absorbing in a culture where we have until now been conditioned to think that what we have materially is all.
Economists and academics will not admit it, but what is happening and the patterns that are emerging now are nothing like the texts or history books that have been written about economics and political history of the past.
Events that should never run concurrently or together are already taking place at the same time, and hyperinflation or more likely massive deflation is likely to hit this Country very soon. This is not something that any sensible person or business leader really wants to see happening within a Country like the UK by choice.
Instead of being worried about the inevitable changes that are set to come, we must all realise and accept that the reset that is coming offers a massive opportunity for us all, as long as we do our bit to ensure that we have the right leadership in place so that we can embrace it.
This reset will be the opportunity to make life good and affordable for all, whilst we take care of the people, the communities and the world around us – all as a positive and selfless choice.
