“It’s indeed hard to wrap our heads around what happened, given our belief in the solidity of our nation’s institutions. But this much is certain: The perpetrators were not serious people. It might have been an attempted coup — of the sort attempted by blithering idiots. That’s not to say our nation never faced any danger. The truth is so hard to bear that Trump’s most-devoted acolytes still refuse to grapple with it, lest they must (perhaps) face their own complicity.” (06/17/22)
