    “America’s Schools Are a Moral and Medical Catastrophe”
    “A guide to understanding the science, and the politics,
    preventing U.S. children from being educated this year.” (Laurie Garrett)
    Question 1: “Should a national-scale school reopening be considered, at all?
    Emphatically, no. The state of Florida’s data shows that 13 percent of children who have been tested for the novel coronavirus were found to be infected, and there’s a gradient of infection downward with age: Only 16 percent of these positive cases are in children 1 to 4 years old, whereas 29 percent are in those 15 to 17 years old. In Nueces County, Texas, 85 children under age 2 have tested positive for the coronavirus since March, killing one of them. The infections were likely caught from parents or older siblings. A South Korean government survey of 60,000 households discovered that adults living in households that had an infected child aged 10 to 19 years had the highest rate of catching the coronavirus—more so than when an infected adult was present. Nearly 19 percent of people living with an infected teenager went on to test positive for the virus within 10 days. A Kaiser Family Foundation study says some 3.3 million adults over 65 in the United States live in a home with at least one school-aged child, putting the elders at special risk. A one-size policy absolutely does not fit all:
    School risk is a reflection of the larger coronavirus prevalence in a community.
    A blanket national school policy makes no sense whatsoever.”

    “The president is deploying the kind of performative authoritarianism that Vladimir Putin pioneered.”
    “Welcome to the world of performative authoritarianism, a form of politics that reached new heights of sophistication in Russia over the past decade and has now arrived in the United States.”

      “This ladies and gentlemen is Trump’s secret police.”
      Trump “clinging to the image of the law and order president as his approval ratings continues to tank, borrowing from the playbook of the dictators he so admires” (Tiffany Cross)
      Trump: “We’re going to all of the cities, any of the cities. We’re going to put in 50,000, 60,000 people who really know what they’re doing. They’re strong. They’re tough.”

    • July 27, 2020 at 12:57 pm

      Cross: “We’re living in a world where Secret police are detaining protestors without probable cause.”
      Anne Applebaum: (Atlantic, “Twilight of Democracy”)
      “I think the important thing to understand about what Trump is doing,
      is that these are not tactics designed to solve the problem.
      Why is he sending Customs and Border Patrol, Coastguard, TSA…into American cities? These are people who don’t have training in riot control, who aren’t used to dealing with political protest, and whose main goal seems to be to create more chaos. Of course this isn’t full on dictatorship…but what he is doing is creating pictures that are designed to show other Americans how tough he is.”

      • July 27, 2020 at 1:04 pm

        “Of course this isn’t full on dictatorship …”

        Well, if it gets any more ‘full on’ people will be being abducted from their homes!

        Throughout history, the record of denial of the blatantly obvious that preceded societal collapse is a lesson most Americans have never studied.

        Every MINUTE Trump remains in POWER is a step toward the total collapse of whatever Democracy remains in America.

    • July 27, 2020 at 12:59 pm

      Applebaum:
      “So the fact that these men and women (maybe) are wearing camouflage, they look heavily armed,
      they’re wearing face masks, this is designed show and act out dominance: “Look – we’re pushing back against the liberal America, the urban America, the chaotic America that you’re all ‘afraid’ of, and this is how we’re going to win the argument.”
      This way of using troops and using photographs of violence is something we have seen in other authoritarian states, particularly in Russia, where Putin in 2014 used pictures of violence to imply that the democracy movement in Ukraine was really some kind of nazi fascist uprising, and that he was then putting it down. So this is a tactic we’ve seen in other parts of the world.”

    Remembering U.S. Rep. John R. Lewis

    The boy from Troy
    Whose Mother no doubt
    Did not want him to go
    Traveled to the bridge
    So long ago, so long ago

    He marched with Dr. King
    And spoke at the podium before him
    They had to tone down his words
    Because he spoke the harsh truth
    And while he spoke the truth
    He learned so well
    And taught others
    And I’m guessing for his Mother
    To tone down the words
    Forgive the others
    Make his impassioned plea
    Make it a learning event
    On the road to Congress
    Where he spent long years
    And became its conscience
    Educated more youthful soldiers
    Boys and girls from Troy
    And everywhere

    Never to be taken down
    And told not to be so harsh
    Again.
    Because he found his voice
    He found his voice.

    Today he is driven in a hearse
    Through the streets of Washington
    To pay respects at the
    National Museum of African American
    History and Culture
    That he worked to achieve and the
    Lincoln Memorial and
    Black Lives Matter Lane and
    the U.S. Capitol
    And be driven nearby the souls who
    Loved him
    Some waiting in the streets.

    It’s touching
    It’s hard to watch.

    I am so glad I got the chance
    To witness the history from afar
    I saw the boy from Troy speak
    Before Dr. King at the podium
    I saw him visit
    Black Lives Matter plaza this year
    I saw him in Congress
    Sometimes during late-night hours
    When he was speaking up
    And standing up
    For his fellow Americans

    Gone but not forgotten
    A treasure sent for only a little while
    Borrowed from his Mother
    So he could dedicate his life to
    Getting in good trouble and now
    His life has space at the museum
    His life mattered
    Our hearts break
    Good trouble.
