“In my initial Covid essay, “The Coronation,” I described the pandemic as an initiation: an interruption in normality that would reveal what lurked hidden within and among us, that would face us with new choices and demand of us new capacities. A coronation, I said, is an initiation into sovereignty, where heretofore unconscious choices become conscious. Covid shone a light onto where we have been headed: an alienated, locked down, technologically mediated, ideologically polarized, authoritarian, medicalized world under ever-intensifying control. These trends did not all of a sudden start in 2020. Now that we have seen clearly our destination, it is no longer inevitable. We can choose another based on what we hold sacred.” Quoted from charleseisenstein.org/books/the-coronation
