Welp. Gosh. Here we are, then. I hope you’re doing okay.
Amidst the chaos of the global Coronavirus pandemic, previous LIASYO guest Osman Faruqi joins me (via Skype) to reflect on what the hell is happening. Osman is a journalist is the editor of The 7am Podcast for Schwartz Media and has been tweeting and writing a lot about the unfolding situation.
Here Oz and I discuss the most egregious examples of capital exploiting this crisis and the insane contradictions about this economic system it exposes, the Australian government’s shitty response and how much needs to change in our society to make sure this kind of thing can never happen again.
It was a slightly depressing but very cathartic conversation and I hope it gives you some comfort and ferments your (justifiable) rage towards those in power in these wild times.
