When we look closer to home, blunders (meatpacking plants, seniors care homes, political miss-calls) seem to be declining. If you look to CNN etc. for coverage of the latest stupid thing said by Trump, I’ve we’ve grown numb.
Those dis-united United States, Canada too, lack national harmony; governors and premiers call shots. Drill down, find out who is sane, and who is questionable, consider which jurisdictions are making decisions based on math, science, and medicine as guided by trusted health authorities – you’ll see COVID-19 coming under some degree of management and control.
Others, too many, where policy is driven by politics, popularity, and fear of public opinion.
