Commentary in the Cold Light of Defeat

Kevin Baker - The New York Times:

What they have done is a desecration, a foolish and vindictive act of vandalism, by which they betrayed all the best and most valiant labors of our ancestors. We don’t want to accept this, because we cannot accept that the people, at least in the long run of things, can be wrong in our American democracy. But they can be wrong, just like any people, anywhere. And until we do accept this abject failure of both our system and ourselves, there is no hope for our redemption.

A good writer states in one paragraph what it’d take me a page to get around to. His essay, The America We Lost When Trump Won, is direct and to the point.
