Abstract

We stand at an epic moment in history, akin to the transformations brought about by plague, slavery, imperialism, colonialism, capitalism, war, decolonization, revolution, emancipation, human and civil rights, feminism, and climate change.

The current pandemic brings into sharp relief the fault lines of inequality that divide the world both between and within sovereign-states, compelling near-universal fear and suffering.

Covid-19 is a limit case, an emergency of cosmic proportions that can alert us to the limitations and failings of the current conjuncture, specifically in the elemental field of health.
