Once again we are going through another momentous re-imagining and remaking our society, economy, and culture. While it didn’t begin with the interlocking political, economic, and health crises that tightly grip the country or the sudden, sustained, and massive marches protesting the brutal murder of George Floyd, both greatly accelerate this process.

This crisis like earlier crises in the 20th century will be resolved politically, that is, in the course of a fierce political struggle between contending political blocs and coalitions. And there is little doubt that the outcome of the November elections will play an over sized role in determining the outcome this crisis, with the winner gaining enormous advantage over the loser to shape and reshape the future.
