COVID-19 Chronicles are a series of interviews and conversations with personalities, analysts, doctors, thinkers, activists and politicians on the meaning of the coronavirus crisis and its impacts on the world’s politics.

Eventually, we will get past the virus. But will we get past the problems the virus has identified? How will the world change? A line in history is being drawn by COVID-19, how will the post-COVID world be different from pre-COVID.

The interviews are conducted by Frank Barat. He is an activist, journalist, and producer. He has worked on books with Noam Chomsky, Ilan Pappé, Ken Loach. His latest with Angela Davis “Freedom is a Constant struggle” is out now. 

For more interviews visit the COVID-19 Chronicles Facebook page or the YouTube Channel.

    If history is a lesson, then wealth will further consolidate its power and control by exploiting the “crisis.” With the internet being a golden opportunity, if we can’t make truly meaningful reforms now, things will just get worse for the 98%. Go American Yellow Vests!

    These necessary social, political, and economic changes have already begun and are inevitable in this time of immense change. After the brief pandemic, a relatively long Great Depression II will end the system as we know it. People are already informed and cannot “unlearn” stuff. Heady times, full of opportunity.

    Sorry to burst your bubble but with each passing day it appears less and less likely that anything will change for the better.

    In fact, with each passing day that people don’t actively resist any sort of ‘return to normal’ the more likely the window will close on upending the status quo, which should be the goal of every single Leftie (I purposely exclude progs. as they’re not of the Left but rather know-nothing moderates and have no idea what it means to bring about change, aka progress).

    Mind you this is not surprising but still shocking.

    I have a theory why Bernie dropped out.

    He dropped out because he realized how compelling his message of universal health care is now.

    It’s as if now that his argument has become virtually incontestable–i.e. would convince at least 75% of the Nation–he got scared. TPTB realized he had to bow out or, oops, he’d win–something he never intended to happen.

    He is and was always a sheepdog for the Dem. party, as many knew since 2016.

    Weird stuff, I know.
