There’s all this debate echoing through the liberal sphere in an attempt to answer some version of How did we get to this point? in regards to people storming the Capitol building. & there’s certainly much to be said in regards to how this all came about.
But while these discussions always include questions about what the people who follow Trump believe and how they got to that point, I feel there’s an equally valid question in regards to who still believes in the United States. Like, I’m more fascinated by people who see US institutions and think, Yes, these are the things that should lead us into the future.
