In a Washington Post interview today, Burns identifies his primary worry about our democracy, in historical context:
“I think this is the greatest threat to our republic ever. Not the Depression, not World War II, not the Civil War. This is it … this moment of all these intersecting viruses, of novel coronaviruses and of racial injustice — [a] 402-year-old-virus. And it’s an age-old human virus of lying and misinformation and paranoia and conspiracy. This is the pill that will kill us unless we do something.”
Who has the solutions, cures, treatments?
