Author(s): Sutoyo, Anita Trisiana, Siti Supeni, Sakinah

New Normal is not just a suggestion to implement a new life order from the aspect of public health. 'New Normal' is supposed to be used as a momentum to seriously implement the Pancasila values in the new life system, as a consequence of the Covid 19 pandemic. The system of value and moral needs to be established in a country to realize a complete national development. The holistic national development incorporates both physical and non-physical development that reflects the values of Pancasila. This research aims to: (1). Analyze the principle of national development; (2). Discover the main sources of national development; (3). Describe the basic values that are important in national development; (4). Identify the path of the spread of value and moral development; (5). Describe the constraints in building values and morals; (6). Analyze steps in overcoming constraints of value and moral development. This method employed in this study is qualitative research. The data sources of this study are literature, public officials, educators, and community leaders. The data of this study were collected using interview techniques, questionnaires, and documentation. The validity of this study uses triangulation techniques, namely triangulation methods and source triangulation. The collected data were analyzed using interactive techniques consisting of data presentations, data reduction, data verification and conclusion drawing. The results of the research show that: The principle of national development based on democracy with the principles of togetherness, justice, sustainability, and environmental awareness is carried out to balance progress and national unity. This is determined by human resources (HR), material resources in the form of funds and infrastructure, and moral values as a belief. Values in national development include basic values and instrument values. Development of moral values is essentially a nation's character education. There are several paths that can be used in the implementation of building the nation's moral values, namely the education channel and the mass media channel. There are still some obstacles in the development of moral values in Indonesia, including the uneven quality of education; lack of good role model; Information Technology progress. Steps to overcome constraints to build moral values, namely the issuance of Presidential Regulation No. 7 of 2018 concerning the establishment of the Pancasila Ideology Development Board (BPIP); Free learning policy; Social life in a "new normal" state must be anticipated in the context of the locality of life as a nation and state. This "new normal" order is not merely in the form of a temporary adaptation due to the presence of the Covid 19 virus, but the birth of a "new norm order" which is considered a new form of normalcy.
