What Will the World Democracy Be Like After the Pandemic?

We can Rebuild and produce a more Humane Democracy

Book and Media Platform Overview

Summary: We the world find ourselves in an uncertain season marked by our sudden fragility. Like humans always do, our survival instincts have jumped into overdrive. We now spend most waking hours thinking, worrying, and strategizing about how to combat an invisible virus that won’t go away. And when we’re not consumed with our defense, we wonder about life as we know it or, perhaps, as it once was. We’re collectively asking, What is the best response? And, Is this seismic shift the new normal? If the pandemic has illuminated anything, it has illuminated the fault lines in both national and global collaboration. But what if these fault lines are the light at the end of this unprecedented tunnel? This is the prevailing question posed by a new media initiative from the groundbreaking authors of The transHuman Code, the one book placed into the hands of every delegate at the 2019 World Economic Forum in Davos.

Carlos Moreira and David Fergusson’s latest initiative, aptly titled Pandemocracy, explores in enlightening detail, the negative and positive takeaways of the pandemic on humanity’s pursuit of democracy for all. They then detail their bold claim that the engagement of global leadership in concert with the application of human-first principles to the coding of key global technologies (introduced in The transHuman Code) will bring about the prepared, symbiotic world we now know we need. Over the next eight months, the initiative will publish four bi-monthly essays on four key issues we must get right, synced with four one-question global polls on major relevant issues, providing a real time pulse of the world’s state of mind. These findings, along with expert interviews and a more robust discussion of the essay topics, will fill the pages of a book to be pre-released to delegates of the 2021 World Economic Forum, and available worldwide in the first half of 2021.

The interception of Pandemic and Democracy and how the current pandemic outbreak presents a range of new challenges and disruption to democracy and the human identity and rights.
