Meanwhile, there are industry leads shifts in public opinion and in the dominant beliefs that underlie political activity, which could be configuring a new normality based on the questioning of pre- existing (ab)normalities. industry leads A first aspect of the discussion, or construction, concerns the temporality of what we are living, the figure under which we represent this time.
