Media emotionalism is exhausting us: POLITICS! COVID! CLIMATE CHANGE! It can be argued that POLITICS “… is the human race’s most magnificent achievement … politics is good even when it is bad … because the only alternative is force – and somebody gets hurt.” (Robert A. Heinlein: “Podkayne of Mars”). We need politics in our searches for solutions.
We’d love to be rid of COVID as soon as possible, like yesterday! Agreed? We have a real hope of getting there within the next year or two with a concerted collective effort.
