The corona virus bothers everything. It’s not just the very serious health crisis with its unfortunate balance of victims. Given that I know it’s exacerbated by a political, economic and social crisis that threatens to change our world forever. And in the midst of this crisis, technology has empowered the population and plays a fundamental role in expressing it, as Anthony Pompliano says in our report Tweet from today:
Technology has strengthened our societies
These are difficult times for all countries in the world. Now, as the COVID-19 crisis is expanding and accelerating, the nations of the world are in difficulty facing the consequences of the corona virus. Not only in terms of unfortunate human sacrifices, but also in terms of the economic crisis and social tensions.
To do this, just look at the latest action taken by Western governments. Especially from the United States Department of Treasury and the Federal Reserve of that country.
Institutions that have committed more than $ 2 trillion in incentives to try to keep the economy going, despite the quarantine set up to stop the corona virus. Note that most plans do not include strategies that include new technologies.
People are not sitting idly by
This, of course, has led to voices within American society and beyond rising against what they see as an act of fiscal irresponsibility. Which allowed pressure to be put on the American government and before the community’s complaints. All thanks to the technology, as Pompliano said on his Twitter account:
“”The establishment survived for decades and simply silenced it by not giving them a platform to speak. Technology has broken this monopoly and now the establishment is suffering because most have a platform with an audience“”
So technology has not only strengthened the individual, but the whole society. It now has the ability to speak out and take action that governments take against their interests. Whether on Twitter, Facebook or via blogs, the voice of the citizens can no longer be silenced. Regardless of whether coronavirus stimulus packages are a good idea or a bad idea, this is worth a comment.
