“Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. We can choose to walk through it, dragging the carcasses of our prejudice and hatred, our avarice, our data banks and dead ideas, our dead rivers and the smoky skies behind us. Or we can walk through it lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine a new world. And ready to fight for it.” Arundhati Roy, ‘The Pandemic is a Portal’, FT, 3 April 2020
