Tuesday’s post: The world after corona
Tuesday April 28 | The world after corona
Every Tuesday in the coming weeks we’ll be exploring one of the cultural reactions to the pandemic: the rise of ideology. From all across the political spectrum opinion makers are talking about “the world after corona,” predicting what will change and what will stay the same. Today’s first outing into online ideology is an interview with Naomi Klein, noted leftist author of “This Changes Everything.”
“What’s clear,” she says, “is that there will be no gradual shift. The whole system has collapsed, so there are going to be big changes. Whether it’ll be similar to what we experienced after 2008, which changed people’s lives for the worse, or a major transformation, like in the 1930s with the New Deal. One way or the other, there is no going back to the former normal.”
