In recent weeks, what we are witnessing is a ground swell of righteous indignation at a nation in crisis for being found naked in the act of institutional racism. In these unprecedented times, we not only have been caught in a soul crisis but a public health crisis, where the world is fighting an airborne corona virus that has killed over 300,000 people worldwide; an economic crisis that has left roughly one in four Americans unemployed; an environmental crisis that threatens our ecological sustainability due to climate change; and now a constitutional crisis, where the President of the United States has invoked a 213-year-old Insurrection Act for the purpose of deploying the military to assault peaceful protesters exercising their first amendment rights; and to add insult to literal injury, all out of spite to be seen on the steps of a church holding a bible. Folks, if this isn’t a sign that we should be seriously concerned about civil society and the rule of law, then I really don’t know how to make it any clearer.
