Is A Backlash Coming?

A Global Backlash Is Coming... In Mostly Good Ways

Lots of people are predicting how life will fundamentally change in light of our collective experience this last month. I agree but I don’t think it will turn out quite as people think. This whole period has been an unconscionable trauma for billions of people, wrecking lives far beyond what even the worst virus could achieve. I’m detecting enormous, unfathomable levels of public fury barely beneath the surface. It won’t stay beneath the surface for long. 
Our lives in the coming years will be defined by forms of backlash in the wake of both the disease and the egregious policy response, as a much needed corrective.
