The Reagan Era is over!
The widely accepted idea that government is inherently bad won't persist after coronavirus.
A functioning government is crucial for a healthy society. Success came in states where government, civic and private sector leaders joined their strengths together in a spirit of self-sacrifice for the common good.
Time to begin to promote more constructive patterns in our cultural and political discourse. Americans return to a new seriousness because government is a matter for serious people. Change post Covid 19 is undisputable and many challenges rely on the new administration going forward, expertise matters and Biden's Administration is the new way to build back better.
In a national crisis a recognition including those entrusted with protecting our health, preserving our liberties and overseeing our National Security-need to be staffed with experts (not political loyalists), best decisions need to be made through a reasoned policy process and predicated on evidence-based science and historical and geopolitical knowledge.
Instead of Trump's "America First" foreign policy, we need to return to multilateral diplomacy, and to the understanding that cooperation with allies and adversaries, too-is especially necessary when it comes to dealing with global problems like climate change and viral pandemics.
This mismatch of long-disregarded populations getting unattended or dismissed, will likely have drastic consequences, and this is why Biden is prioritizing a massive Covid relief package that will include direct checks, unemployment supplement benefits, tribal and local governments, schools, vaccine distribution, infrastructure and other resources.
Therefore, living peacefully and meaningfully together is going to take much more than our day-to-day habits. America is fragile and democracy is at stake, the evilness of Trump rooted in our country for the past 4 years has debilitated and destabilize our form of government, it will take time to restore faith, strength and our trust in a system of government that works for all Americans.
