This is an interesting question a blogger asked me in one of my blog posts amid the COVID-19 pandemic: “Interesting article …… social, health, financial, whatever crisis …… but why!?”— The Mysterious Blogger
Yes, why? Why does the world keep on living crisis after crisis, war after war?
Many experts from different professional backgrounds can give you their own opinions, and some differ from one another. I read them all to make my own opinion. I don’t care what political or religion affiliation they hold. I learn from them all.
I have read geopolitical, financiers, social disruption experts, sociologists, think tanker experts and I have made my own opinion about what goes on in the world. Of course, I keep learning everyday, especially now with the coronavirus pandemic that is causing thousands of deaths, and social disruptions around the globe.
The world has had a country that has set an example of success to the world for decades: the United States of America. But like everything else, all good things come to an end. Let me explain more. The world reserve currency has been the US dollar for long time. It was in 1944 when the US dollar was chosen as the world reference currency at Bretton Woods. Since then, we have seen the power of America rise globally, and the rest of the world followed. Now we have been seeing other countries rise to power; China is an example. The whole world is changing: politically, financially, socially.
But don’t take me wrong. All these changes we are living today, other generations of the past have gone through too.
Actually, this is not new to the history of the world. It is just new to us, to the people who inhabit the planet at this moment. In two hundred years from now, the humans living then will go through the same climatic cyclical changes, political, social and financial disruptions. It’s just the way it is: The Human Condition.
Let’s admit it. The “powers that be”, term that some people use to refer to the societies who really own the big corporations of the world, always try to make the most money through taxation, insurance, banking, hope and fear, war or “freedom”. Whatever works for each county as long as they make profit.

I believe that one of the main reasons we’re here in this wonderful earth is to try to bring goodness to each one of us, to the lives of our loved ones and strangers alike.
Right now we are going through really hard times with the COVID-19 pandemic. It is serious and it is real. But I am hopeful that we all are going to get through these tough times.
