The 2020 Election
The 2020 election is a key moment in the history of American democracy where the United States can choose to correct course, installing a new chief executive and legislators that will defend bedrock democratic ideals and freedoms, or it can travel further down the road of Trumpism and allow “nationalist populism”, racism and predatory kleptocracy to solidify into a fully realized and durable new American culture. Robert Kuttner MA makes the forceful stand that, aside from the daily media-baiting hijinks and outrages, the Trump administration has seriously eroded many of the bulwarks of American-style democracy. The damage can be reversed, but it’s not enough that Democrats beat Trump; they must win and govern as economic progressives. Kuttner is a former columnist for BusinessWeek, the Washington Post, the Boston Globe and current columnist for The NY Times international edition.
