We need to re-wild nature and live a completely localized life - no international trade, no mass production. We have to stop doing stuff. Immediately.

Maybe if this all sinks in, we'll all stay home to hug our children and other loved ones, maybe play in a park or go for a walk, and that will actually help us eke out a few more years.
