One of the side effects of coronavirus is the threat to the free flow of information. Who can we trust? What happens when information is cut off, or manipulated? Many say that critical information was suppressed by the Chinese government – information that could have helped the world. Some even say What does democracy and freedom of speech have to do with the Coronavirus? Some say censored information did not make it out of China, which could have helped the world. Some even say that if China valued free speech, there might be no coronavirus crisis in the first place. Does the east or west know best when it comes to politics? Not surprisingly, ideacity has been all over this topic. Watch as Daniel Bell sheds light on China’s vertical model political system, Janice Stein talks to us about how technology is rebordering the world, and Hon. Irwin Cotler explores the retreat of democracies.
