In the July 16 New York Times, columnist Nicholas Kristof wrote an article with a provocative title: "We Interrupt This Gloom to Offer...Hope."
Kristof's basic point is that things have gotten so awful in the U.S. that, in response, with any luck, we could soon be able to make progress on many issues that we could never make in normal times. He gives the example of the Great Depression, which made possible Social Security, rural electrification, and much more. And the assassination of John F. Kennedy, which led to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and the Civil Rights Act.
Could the crises we are going through right now have even more profound and long-lasting consequences?
