Lawrence Summers - What we can do in this dangerous moment: "we are in an economic environment where we have more to fear than fear itself. But this is no excuse for fatalism. The policy choices made in the next few months will matter to the lives of millions of Americans, to America’s economic strength and to the global economy"Nodding your head in agreement?
Guess what? That was from ten years ago!
If we step back from the insanity that trump and his 63 million voters have unleashed on the the US and the entire non-Russia world, we begin to realize that progress has always zigged and zagged, and has never run a straight line.
It does not mean that we ought to, therefore, yield to the maniac grabbing our pussies, even though we liberals rarely ever put up a fight.
We are always quick to compromise, unlike those who want to preserve the status quo and want to make America great again. Because, they have plenty to lose from the changes that are inevitable, they will fight hard to take us back in time.
Press on we shall, fully recognizing that things will get worse before they can get better. The hope is that the moral arc of the universe does indeed bend towards justice, even if the arc has been made longer by trump and his minions.
