The New 9/11 Isn’t 1/6. It’s Covid.

“It is important to stop every once in a while and take stock of things, to lay down some breadcrumbs to refer back to when someone asks, ‘How did we end up here?‘ In many ways, the story is the same story. The message of 9/11 was: give up freedom for safety, trust the government, and treat your neighbors as potential threats. Now, 20 years later, you realize you went along with it because you were scared, even though the real threat was minimal. The message of Covid is to give up more freedom for safety, trust the government, and treat your neighbors as potential threats. Fear is infectious and now we’re here. As a young David Petraeus said early in the Iraq War: Tell me how this ends.” (10/04/21)
