It will all be fine?

It will all be fine? How to create a new human capital now?

It may well be that “everything will be fine”, but the fact remains that evil is irrational.

It affects everyone without the possibility of appealing to meritocracy. And we, humankind unprepared to face the biggest epidemic of the century, had an important choice to make.

Transforming this crisis situation into an opportunity or a disadvantage.

According Darwin…

According to Charles Darwin, it is not the strongest or most intelligent species that survives but the one that is best adapted to change.

And the change seems to me quite evident in this historical moment, among other things definitive and tangible.

Our way of traveling will be different, our proxemics will become more prudent, our way of working and communicating will change.

In an imponderable reality like this, full of unknowns and in constant transformation, we have few supports to hold on to firmly.

But it is also true that we can always select what can lead us towards a solution.

Technology is our ally because it allows us to monitor the progress of the epidemic, accelerate research and dispense economic and logistical aid in various parts of the world and in a short time.

Let’s think of the school, which promptly organized distance learning.

Or to the world of work that has been able to maintain a feeble constancy in the exercises of various professions, with delivery, smartworking (I talk about it in my Bleisure article) in short.

The rescue network was, once again, that of the web. And not just for his ability to spread courage through memes like “everything will be fine”.

“Positive web”

Using the internet, apps developed ad hoc and computer systems helps us not only to simplify some operations in daily life even in the absence of emergencies.

But, at this precise juncture, it allows us to safeguard the lives of citizens.

Avoiding queues and gatherings, all, if we want it, without losing productivity and keeping morale high, an element to be taken into serious consideration.

Adopting a positive and proactive attitude is certainly a decisive factor in the recovery and here I introduce a second element, the human one, the key to getting out of this situation.

Why we will get out of it, in one way or another but if we will come out better, that depends entirely on us.

The epidemic is the canvas on which to paint a metaphor between what happens and the reactions of all humanity, the evolution of interpersonal relationships and the relationships between the oppressed and oppressors.

A still image, in the context of the emergency, of what are the ordinary and not always noble characteristics of the human soul.

What is the collective personality (forgive the oxymoron) that would emerge from such a picture?

A brutalized, conflicted humanity or a magnanimous and supportive humanity?

Once again, every single individual is a potential, determining needle of the scales.

For this reason, social policies now more than ever must aim at developing a civic sense, a “human” gender identity, removing the specter of isolation, alienation and annihilation.

Realizing perhaps for the first time in history, a perfect balance between technology and use in the “archaic” sense of the term, between pleasure and commitment, a human capital 2.0 without anguish.

Who does not have to compete for a job with machines but at the same time is free, thanks to the machines themselves, to express his potential and his creativity in synergy with the rules of the market.


Technology can be a stepping stone. To develop a network, this network must be made up of proactive, evolved and in step with the times, who do not lose sight of the most important moral values.

In short, a bridge between the new material needs and those same values ​​enshrined in the fundamental principles of our Constitution, in Articles 2 and 3:

“The Republic recognizes and guarantees the inviolable rights of man, both as an individual and in the social formations where his personality takes place, and requires the fulfillment of the mandatory duties of political, economic and social solidarity.”

It’s still

“[…] It is the duty of the Republic to remove the obstacles of an economic and social nature which, by limiting the freedom and equality of citizens, prevent the full development of the human person and the effective participation of all workers in the organization political, economic and social of the country.”

Faced with a misfortune of any kind, we survive by chance or by ingenuity: we are facing a crossroads, which path do we want to take?
