“America’s toxic choice: Two deeply flawed candidates, a nation riven by Covid and racist violence… and what promises to be the dirtiest fight for the White House ever.”

A very good, thoughtful piece.

From my point of view, the fundamental problem today is America’s division.

It is divided along many lines as I have never seen it before.

Even the pandemic has not reduced the divisions as one expects national emergencies to do, to bring people together.  It has perhaps only emphasized them further, as with battles over masks and medications and the vile accusations towards China, the pandemic’s first victim.

It is the kind of unstable situation one expects to see presaging big destructive events like civil war or revolt.

And in a changing world, with America losing its unique post-WWII place, even its power establishment is uncertain and fearful. Full of envy about China. Afraid for their position of privilege.

The very worst kind of person to throw into a situation like that is vicious narcissist like Trump, a man of absolutely no principles.
