Most of us are shocked by the covid-19 crisis. At the same time, there is a kind of inevitability to it considering the social and economic path of our societies. I would like you to consider the reasons and the solutions. I’ve compiled a book-length list of articles that I have been collecting as the crisis unfolds. It is divided into four sections. Some of the articles are clear scientific explanations, while others explain general or specific political and economic situations. Several of them are opinion pieces which state the problems. I conclude with the general solution: democratic ecosocialism.
