How Progressives Should Talk About COVID-19

  • Adequately prepares the public for action, minimizes panic and delivers a measured, scientifically-informed approach.
  • Alerts people to the coming right wing, authoritarian crackdown, expose to the public and inoculate them from easily bending to their campaign of disinformation and power grabs.
  • Leverages this moment to advance progressive policies that bolster our communities, that help us care and relate to each other and keep us safe in positive ways nationally and globally. By leaning into our interdependence, we can use this moment of capitalist slowdown to model the world we should be living in instead.
