How a Virus Could Change the World (2021) – Politics of Fear?
In the corona crisis, thousands of companies are heading toward bankruptcy, restrictions on civil rights that were hardly thought possible are decided without discussion – for an indefinite period. Governments submit to recommendations from experts, and opposition is barely visible. What is really happening here? Paul Schreyer places the events in an illuminating global context. This book, a bestseller in Germany for many months, makes it clear: Current policies have not been improvised spontaneously, but are rather based on planned exercises dating back 20 years – and should be familiar to anyone who wants to understand what is currently taking place.
