One thing the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted is that in a time of crisis, the most vulnerable are – yet again – the ones who take the biggest hit. That is why we have dedicated this first Progressive Post of 2021 to them: be they children, compelled to follow home-schooling, with all the difficulties and shortcomings this entails; be they adult learners, whose possibilities to continue their education have shrunk; be they migrants, who have completely dropped off the radars of public perception; or be it the entire world of care, both those who depend on it, and those who provide this care, often in the most difficult of circumstances, often with the least recognition financially and socially, and often – yet again – women and migrants.
And we continue with the reflection, launched in the previous issue, on the deep crisis in which today’s capitalism is entrenched, and on the ways to move beyond this by reshaping the quality of growth. This means putting the weakest, as well as the planet, at the top of the post-pandemic priority list.
