(TNS) Fox News’ Tucker Carlson didn’t ascend to the top of cable news punditry by being hyperbolic or foolish, he got there with class, style, and cogent, thoughtful, analysis.
So when he pontificates about the current state of things during his daily evening show, lots of people listen.

On Tuesday, Tucker offered his analysis of post-COVID-19 America and the post c-virus world that is both interesting and noteworthy, given thatÂ things will change if for no other reason than simply based on our outsized response to the pandemic.
As Fox News reported, Tucker detailed three dangers we’ll face in the U.S. after the virus epidemic passes:
The economic damage caused by the coronavirus could be significant enough to “wipe out the middle class,” he warned.
“The finance moguls will be fine no matter what happens to the economy. Not much changes for poorÂ people, either.Â But the middle class?Â The middle class could be wipedÂ out by what we are watchingÂ right now,” he said.
“The service industry, middleÂ management, small business, theÂ independent contractors, peopleÂ like those make this countryÂ work, and more importantly, theyÂ keep it stable.Â They are the ones in deepestÂ peril tonight.”
A lasting economic hit to the middle classÂ would result in anÂ “impoverished country with a thinÂ layer of rich people at the top.”
“That’s a recipe for sufferingÂ and for never-ending politicalÂ volatility … and suddenly, for the first timeÂ ever, it’s a possibility here.Â Our first priority has to be preventing that or our grandchildren will regret itÂ deeply,” he noted.
China’s Economic Dominance
That China could actually emerge from all of this as the preeminent global economic power is a possibility as well, he said.
“China ultimately is responsibleÂ for this virus.Â The threat extends far beyondÂ the current pandemic. It’s entirelyÂ possible that the Chinese coronavirus makes China stronger in the end, even as it weakens us in America,” Carlson warned. “China already has a deeper manufacturing base than we do and has a far larger population … soon it will have the biggest economy on earth.”
“Itâ€™s entirelyÂ possible that we could wake up a few years from now and findÂ China in charge,” he noted further.Â “Now, we’ve been headed toÂ this place for a while. The crisis that weâ€™re currently going through could be enough to push us.”
Carlson called for a plan to prevent Beijing “from taking advantage of theÂ chaos they that have unleashed and [that] weÂ are suffering through.” [Editor’s note: We discussed this very thing today in an earlier story.]
Threat to Freedom of Conscience
Our freedom of conscience is underÂ assault fromÂ multinational techÂ monopolies who have been controlling the stream of information about the c-virus,Â Carlson said (because that’s what they do).
“As we do all we canÂ to fight this pandemic, weÂ should make sure we don’t loseÂ the most important part of ourÂ birthright as Americans … the right toÂ think and say what we believe isÂ true,” he added.
Freedom of conscience may beÂ undervalued rightÂ now, but it underpinsÂ everything we have.Â It is the foundation of a freeÂ and decent society.”
“It’s not a small thing.Â It’s a trend, collusionÂ between big multinationals andÂ authoritarian governments toÂ make you obey,” Carlson concluded. “It’s not paranoid to talk.Â It’s real.Â And you should worry about it.”
