Chris Hayes Podcast With Zeynep Tufekci | Why Is This Happening? – Ep 135 | MSNBC

 

The U.S. just surpassed 10 million confirmed cases of coronavirus as infection rates spike across the country. If you look at the charts tracking the reported cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, it shows the country on a dangerous trajectory. How did we get to this point? Sociologist Zeynep Tufekci has spent time studying the sociology of pandemics and says her alarm bells were going off all the way back in January. She’s spent months writing with an almost unparalleled clarity about the many interlocking aspects of the pandemic, often with insights than turn out to be well ahead of the curve. Tufekci lends her insights on the early missteps in containing this pandemic and what a success story would look like.

    1. @Saoirse Cushing No No, I’ve gotta a nutty collection of mad folk music and other stuff grew up Dublin live Scotland well messed up music list. Love the Drop kicks

  1. In good form, I am going to comment before listening to this. You know, Chris, I think we (in a truly global sense) because the idea that democracy is about “the people” is not really true. Oh, we vote, but in every government, the people are truly lost. Money speaks, money has access, money has power. Your Supreme Court made a big mistakes in both rulings and case considerations that involve corporation personhood and Super PAC’s, but you are not alone in the world. We are in this crazy world because people no longer know whom they can/should trust.

    1. @Doug Thomson Probably a little known book in the States, old English novel, The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists

    2. How very interesting. I did a quick look for the book, found a summary and now will see if I can find it in its original form.

    3. @Doug Thomson Have lost my original hardback hard to find best of luck good chatting. That book sorted my head out when in a mean place. I recommend be on syllabus for all western democracies.

    4. @James Thomas It is readily available and I now have it. See project Gutenberg. Thanks for the referral. I think it will be an interesting read.

  2. You know, sorry going off topic of this conversation guys, but everyone is going on about education in the States. I am gonna make a suggestion of a book that most folk should give a go. Sorry long winded title, The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist. An old English novel, not about pandemics but about caring. It is often regarded as socialist propaganda, make up your own mind on that theory. It had impact on me (a mean selfish SOaB) so stay safe guys happy days are on way.
