“This year an American-flagged Princess Cruises ship, weighing 109,000 tons, carried an excess of 3,000 people into the Antarctic Peninsula. That is 200 people more than the entire population of Antarctic stations at the height of summer. ”

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
