Former world Economic Forum director – Coronavirus fallout could lead to revolutions in the West! (E875)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to the former director of the World Economic Forum, Frank-Jurgen Richter. He discusses the impact coronavirus will have on the European Union’s unity, the possibility of class warfare and revolutions in the West comparable to Russia in 1979 and France in 1789, anti-establishment sentiment as a result of globalization, how unfettered capitalism has created the conditions for mass social unrest amid Covid-19 and more! Finally, we speak to Bhaskar Sunkara, author of ‘The Socialist Manifesto’. He discusses how coronavirus has shattered neoliberalism’s illusions and how a path to socialism can be forged out of the fallout from the pandemic, addresses criticisms of socialism as an authoritarian ideology and how the leaked Labour Party report reveals an internal conspiracy against Jeremy Corbyn, why the state can intervene to solve crises like homelessness and poverty, America’s anti-socialist liberals and their backlash against Bernie Sanders for supporting socialists internationally, and more!
