With coronavirus restrictions easing across Australia, we argue that the aim should not be to return to normal, but rather to create a different society that addresses the inequalities and hardships that existed well before the pandemic.

We also discuss US politics and make a similar case against going back to normal post-Trump, highlighting the need to tackle ongoing problems with health care, the environment and class inequality.
