Perhaps the most timely analysis published in the past ten years is Anne Applebaum’s deconstruction of 21st-century corporate autocracies. Or perhaps it was a little too late? It’s likely that if it had been published 20 years ago it would have been discarded as an exaggeration. Today, however, Applebaum’s piece has been a welcomed crutch to anyone trying to understand what’s been going for those 20 years, and what’s at stake: the idea of the liberal democracy. Among other things, this is what Pueblo People will discuss in light of, you know, recent events.

We’ve been able to hang on for 19 years in one of the craziest media landscapes in the world. Now, the difficulty level was raised abruptly with the global pandemic. We’ve seen different media outlets in Venezuela (and abroad) cutting personnel to avoid closing shop. This is something we’re looking to avoid at all costs, and it seems we will. But your collaboration goes a long way in helping us weather the storm.Donate
