COVID-19 has fast forwarded us into a confusing and uncertain future. Nowhere are these accelerating forces more evident than in our democracy. Our democratic institutions and values are being shaken by rising authoritarianism, a reckoning on race, and intense internal debates on cancel culture, identity politics and free speech.
