All governments are now more vulnerable because the actions in Washington suggest the possibility of a successful takeover by merely walking through security with maybe a little violence. We realize that any existing government is fragile and depends on a feeling shared in the population for its inviolability. Getting that back will not be easy. Under any circumstances. But with covid and climate heating it will be much harder as necessary actions. – Cutting co 2 – Will be felt as a threat o the whole population. Our thinking for years has centered on the economy and personal wealth and we have not kept up with politics, the facts nor the ideas.
Moving toward civility, fairness and system plausibility should be a major focus in coming months.
