I am sorry for the very late comment - I have recently looked into this polycrisis and permacrisis concepts, so I have reread your article again. Anyway, what is fascinating to me is that Adam Tooze, a HISTORIAN, would subscribe to this ahistorical concept and, looking at the historical trajectory of a permacrisis, the term was actually introduced as a *historical* concept to describe, as we would say today, a struggle in France between the logic of the Welfare State and the ascending order of neoliberalism. By the time this word became 2022 word of the year in Collins dictionary, all historical traces were eliminated.

I think you're making it too intellectual.
