What we now know about coronavirus’ origins after the WHO’s Wuhan investigation (E999)
On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Prof. Dominic Dwyer, the Australian Representative of the WHO Investigation in The Origins of COVID-19. He discusses the accusations that the Coronavirus escaped from a lab in Wuhan, Coronavirus cases in Wuhan before the discovery of COVID-19, discoveries of COVID-19 antibodies in Italy before December 2019, the closest relative to COVID-19 which had been discovered in 2013, how much the Chinese authorities cooperated with the WHO investigation team and much more! Finally, we speak to Fabian Scheidler, author of ‘The End of the Megamachine. A Brief History of a Failing Civilisation’. He discusses why capitalism is in terminal crisis due to its continuous growth model, why he classifies human civilisation as a failing civilisation, how capitalism will likely not go through a sudden collapse but rather transition into something else, how crises such as climate change and coronavirus continue to break capitalism, the role of neoliberalism in accelerating capitalism’s collapse, capitalism’s reliance on 70% of the world being cheap labour, the role of regime change and debt in keeping nations poor and more!
