  • Nothing will change because, in our current system, everybody listen to the money. People with the most money are usually greedy assholes ("neo-liberals" as they call themselves - free of fucking up anybody for most of them). Thus, "the money" will tell us all to go back to work as if it never happened, maybe adding a new mandatory shot to the list just to preserve their economy. And since we as a society are too weakened/endoctrinated to change anything, we'll go back at it without much thinking about it.

  • One huge difference between the covid-19 lockdowns we have to endure now (and I do mean lockdowns, because they differ widely from country to country in accordance with severity) is that even though we are confined and isolated, we do get to communicate on a global scale and watch FRworld videos. A luxury none of the previous generations facing pandemics could even just remotely dream of. Granted there is the side effect of quickly spreading (quite ironically) viral misinformation, but luckily debunking spreads equally as quickly. Just imagine being confined in a localized society and having to deal with, well basically the nature of humanity once people start crawling up the walls, without instant communication and information to combat the slowly increasing level of insane ideas fueled by fears and superstition. ... and then once the chills of that mental image has subsided... just take a moment to think about the less fortunate than us, living through this, in what we in our haze of political correctness today choose to call "the developing countries"... and then maybe try to calm our social media rants down a bit, with the realization that the discomfort we are experiencing right now may be more along the lines of luxurious first world country suffering in comparison.

  • yeah, wisecrack is not much of an accurate historian. His perspective is NOT what history scholars teach. Be careful with the pessimism of this video. It tries to tell you that a society that limits freedom is okay, and that restructuring soceity is good. People don't have to change their lifestyles after a pandemic. THE ONLY REASON WHY a society would become less free or allow itself to radically change AFTER a Pandemic, is because OF FEAR AND IGNORANCE.

  • To paraphrase Ben Franklyn... Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither and shall loose both. So to answer your question... You will be able to leave your house when you have the courage to march up to your government overlords and say HELL NO whenever they dare to abrogate your personal civil and constitutional liberties, you damned wussy. Also what the hell do you care if other people leave their houses? They won't be getting you sick while you cower in fear watching from behind the drapes in your bedroom. Or are you just an authoritarian hypocrite who doesn't want anyone else to enjoy the liberties you chose to sacrifice and evidently didn't deserve to begin with? As for what is coming next... it should be obvious... if you allow it.

    Josh PayneJosh PayneIl y a 5 mois
  • Think you missed the MAIN social effect of the 14th century plague epidemic. It created a bigger, more prosperous middle class, which weakened feudalism and set the stage for capitalism. The plague killed about a third of Europe, but the worst of it was over in just a few years. So, when it was over the value of labor rose dramatically. Those peasant rebellions in England that you mentioned came about when the landowning classes tried to deprive workers of their newly won economic gains. At the heart of that was an attempt to fix peasant wages at pre-black death prices. Also worth mentioning, the plague of Justinian caused the collapse of the Western Roman Empire and was a major factor in the coming of the European dark age.

  • It's tricky. The government has the responsibility to address public health issues, and to protect our civil liberties. While some of the draconian measures mentioned in the video were pretty drastic and certainly went too far, drastic measures have to be implemented to save lives under certain circumstances. I want to learn more about the cultural changes that have occurred as a result of pandemics. I'm curious about how disease led to the end of feudalism. Any good recommendations?

Imagine if this happened in the 50'-70'...Now you have instant updates about the state of the world, easy education about everything, plus entertainment during the quarantine. Sometimes we just have to feel grateful for the things that we have. It is also incredible how dumb and uneducated people from the Dark Ages survived pandemics long enough to bring the Renaissance. History is such an underrated subject...

  • I am a Republican. The Covid-19 Pandemic could lead to universal health care and universal basic income in the United States. If the President had ramped up testing, contact tracing, and quarantining of only the infected, like South Korea, and other countries with better leadership, we could have avoided the deaths and a potential Greater Depression.

  • On killing peoples pets it is worth noting that since plague comes from rats dying and mad sick fleas jumping from them unto anything living nearby, and since again this was not a natural human disease but a rat/flea disease jumping species barriers, they where in fact correct in the assertion that pets could, and did, spread the plague. There are accounts from this time of fields of thousands sheep lying dead from the plague rotting, with no humans available to clear them out and no animal having been willing to eat their diseased corpses.

  • Very nice video although I must point out that you used a clip which showed flag of Pakistan being raised while talking about rise of Nationalism in India as an after effect of plague. Although it might not be strictly incorrect as India and Pakistan were then united under British rule but in the modern day the term India specifically refers to the modern day country India and some might take offence at this potential misrepresentation!

  • I'm so happy I finally found a video that actually explains in depths what former pandemics did to societies rather than just listing them and their death tolls! It's interesting to see how the state emerged basically as an antimicrobial task force. The way I see it the fight against such terrible infections is a war. During a war some freedom and luxuries simply aren't available. I feel my German government finally takes this seriously enough (I thought out borders stayed open way to long and we tested only some people with far to strict criteria for weeks. I'm usually a very vocal defender of open borders.) I also think there's a sense of nobody has a better solution so grin and bear it to save grandma. It must have been so much worse back then before we knew what microbes are and PCR was a very weird combination of letters. Just to think if the internet wasn't around... These days we know what to do. (Wash your hands and stay home!!!) It sucks, it will have repercussions, nobody wants this but that's war. At least we go in somewhat informed and still somewhat connected. That reduces my own panic significantly.

  • We lost more of our freedoms in the US after 9/11 than we have under COVID, which has killed ~12x more people so far and actually has some legitimacy in restricting our freedoms and likely to be temporary...unlike what happened to our freedom after 9/11. I wish those protesters would protest the myriad of laws passed after 9/11, rather than protesting a closed movie theater or restaurant.

  • Bit of criticism here: some of the consequences you mention in passing in the end are incredibly significant and important, probably far more than the (arguable) effect of epidemics on the growth of power of centralised government. Yeah, it's plausible that the occurence of a plague may make governments of affected regions more potent - but then again, most euroasian regions, especially the most urbanized, got hit by serious epidemics at one point or another. Yet, centralised powerful government didnt arise everywhere following plagues, nor in the same manner. There's plenty of other factors at work, often described by other historians than Foucault. However, there's 2 consequences of diseases that shaped the world we live in FAR more than "it made central government more powerful - sometimes - some places - maybe?": 1- the industrial revolution and the rise of the middle class. It's a pretty anglo-centric explanation, but it fits: in a nutshell, the plague hits England, LOTS of peasants die. Alot of land is left uncultivated - the owners of land need to have people work it, as their income mostly rely on agricultural production. This gives peasants more power to demand better pay and better conditions, which slowly lead to more freedom in England. It's not the sole cause of course, but when looking at root causes and starting points for the industrial revolution, the black plague is a strong candidate (Id recommend Robert Tombs - The English and their History for more on this). 2- the existence of every nation currently located on the american continent in their modern form is largely due to a cocktail of microbes. Europeans (and Asians) had lived in cattle breeding societies for millenia by 1492. The proximity to many large animals lead to many of humanity's most lethal killers to jump over to us and wreck havock among populations of Eurasia. However, the survivors of those diseases and their descendants got a certain resistance to them. Peoples from the New World(s) didnt have such immunity. So, when spanish and portuguese arrived in America, they infected the locals with their germs - which spread ALOT faster than the would be colonists. Estimations vary, but conservative estimates Ive read speak of 90% of the american population, some go to 95% wiped out. When we speak of Europeans taking the land away from american indians, it was made possible in no smart part to the fact those lands were depopulated MASSIVELY before they did so. Thus, germs were a weapon the colonizing nations had that they didnt even know about or suspected.

  • Cordon in Austria, mentioned here 06:32, is Military Frontier. It wasn't built to stop the plague, it was built to stop the Ottoman invasions. It was mainly manned by Serbs (and others living in the area), that fled the Ottomans from areas like Kosovo and what is today central Serbia. They were allowed to enter and settle the frontier of the Habsburg, but in return they would serve in the army and guard to border from Ottoman intrusions, which is were Wisecrack got that info about every male peasant obligated to serve as border guard. It lasted much longer than 161 years, as it was established in 16th century and lasted until the late 19th century. Now, maybe the existence of the Military Frontier correlates with the 161 years mentioned and maybe because of the plague the border was guarded even tighter at that period, but I don't remember reading that info anywhere. Even if that is so, this is not the reason why the Military Frontier was established and why conscription was so rigorous and presenting the info like this, given the context of the video, viewers can get completely wrong impression. Especially when the current pandemic is ongoing.

The promised pittance in the form of "stimulus money" may never arrive and unemployment checks are a long way off. "Essential workers" have little to nothing in the way of protection and health care workers fare little better. Testing is a drop in the bucket so going back to business as usual is a scary option. If this doesn't make Americans angry as hell, I don't know what will.

  • And the modern 2-party toadies of the USA took up their Google when they started hearing about covid and couldn't contain their erection about how much power they could wield. It's like they just erased the entire 200+ years of progress that IS American liberty. And that, my friends, is why we have the 2nd amendment. Knowing what most do not about Italy, I think it's fair to say that the Plague was a key contributors to their padrone system, which has kept that country lagging behind in terms of organized crime in the south, government corruption, and pretty much what is the poster-child of the social democratic wellfare state... and it's many many flaws. If we do not get the kind of enforcement of the US Constition by the federal judiciary that is necessary as this goes from "emergency" to "new normal", then we will need to start talking about the founding fathers' "plan B". Probably along the lines of what happened with the former USSR.

At the moment we don't have such massive crop failures, but is store bought food an exceptional nutrient source? coupled with the increase of toxicity by orders of magnitude, is a plague a wonder? Not that there is any evidence that covid 19 is even worse than the flu! but lets see.

  • Perhaps in the past, pandemics might have. But I disagree completely that it will change things today after the pandemic ends. It won't change anything in the political landscape. I'm almost positive that President Trump will be reelected as will the Republicans get the senate and the Democrats the house. It won't change our social norms, people will go back to handshaking, high fiving and hugging after the vaccine is administered. It won't change businesses as much as you'd think because new ones will take the place of the one that collapses. Stores will go back to having toilet paper and lysol wipes. Basically the only thing that will change is perhaps the science in which we may approach future pandemics and perhaps people mourning their 89 year old dear aunt Sally that died of COVID-19, but thats about it. Basically this won't change the world like the past pandemics, this is simply a technical difficulty and we are on stand by till our regular secluded program of Life comes back on.
