20. Historically, people move surprisingly fast under certain conditions.

 

If they believe existing ideas have run their course, they are nominally committed to them, but have a lot of inner doubts. They become open to new ideas, when presented with them. This is difficult to predict in advance, but we can see it retrospect as with the civil rights movement or the fall of the Soviet Union.

I believe that we are at such a time. Signs of it have been growing. But I can't predict any better than anyone else. Nonetheless, it's my operating assumption, and I like Buttigieg because it appears to be his assumption too. He is seeing a future that nobody else sees yet, so he sounds fresh and bold.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
