This trailer for the mockumentary Ghost With Shit Jobs shows a could-be-future in which the role of the West and the East is reversed. Very good timing I would say.

@natinja: could you elaborate a little bit more on this part?
"Take for instance all these young graduates hired by banks who are being flown over to China to complete their education. East is the place where they can rally themselves with their lost culture."
Sounds interesting, what exactly are they trying to find, and what are the companies trying to gain from that?

According to the Laws of Media, any medium is programmed to reverse its properties and effects, and being a media itself, Western Civilisation will not escape this fate. But unlike what this video depicts, this is not going to happen in a snap or in a logical sequence of events, the reversal will be long and barely noticeable.
Take for instance all these young graduates hired by banks who are being flown over to China to complete their education. East is the place where they can rally themselves with their lost culture. What a contrast with hippies who visited places like Tibet and India to find their soul.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
