Freedom or life?

“Freedom or death!”, one of the most shouted slogans in the history of the West, proclaimed that life was only worth living if something greater than life itself was recognised. The pandemic has jettisoned the ideas we had inherited about freedom and death, survival, a full life, social control and community.

The virus has come bearing a new message: “Freedom is death”. And, in order to stay alive, we have accepted the most drastic constraints on the freedom of our lives.

In the coming world, what will be valued more, mere protection of life, or life fully lived in freedom?

Will we entrust everything to a long, safe, painless existence that requires forsaking the things that give it meaning? What will the yet-to-exist post-pandemic community be like?
