But in Arizona this weekend, the public against the incumbent Republican Governor, a former Republican Senator and the widow of a second Republican Senator at the state’s GOP’s convention said plenty about just how hard it is going to be for his critics to exorcise Donald Trump from the party.

The U.S. Fumbled Its Early Vaccine Rollout. Will the Biden Administration Put America Back on Track?

n a frigid morning in January, Trudy Ronnel settled into her favorite sofa chair at the Westminster Place senior-living community in Evanston, Ill., pulled down the neckline on her red blouse and braced herself for a shot she’d anticipated for almost a year. At 92 years old, with multiple medical conditions, she spent most of 2020 fearful of contracting the plague that ravaged the world outside her first-floor window. To protect herself, for the past few months she’d avoided Westminster’s communal rooms, which had provided a means to stay active and engaged but risked becoming a pathogenic...

Amsterdam Is Embracing a New Economic Theory to Help Save the Environment. Could It Replace Capitalism?

ne evening in December, after a long day working from home, Jennifer Drouin, 30, headed out to buy groceries in central Amsterdam. Once inside, she noticed new price tags. The label by the zucchini said they cost a little more than normal: 6¢ extra per kilo for their carbon footprint, 5¢ for the toll the farming takes on the land, and 4¢ to fairly pay workers. “There are all these extra costs to our daily life that normally no one would pay for, or even be aware of,” she says. The so-called true-price initiative, operating in the store since late 2020, is one of dozens of schemes that...

In the Wake of the Capitol Riots, We Need to Restore Moral Leadership

In the Wake of the Capitol Riots, We Need to Restore Moral Leadership

ike our pandemic response, the U.S. Capitol riot is the latest cataclysm to be blamed on a failure of imagination. Who could imagine a virus that crashes the entire global operating system, or an attack that narrowly fails to decapitate the U.S. government? And the obvious answer? Anyone who was paying attention. Just as epidemiologists long warned of a pandemic, the insurrectionists helpfully advertised their violent intentions all over social media. The phrase storm the Capitol, unleashing countless QAnon furies, appeared 100,000 times in the month before the attack, according to Zignal...

How China Could Change the World By Taking Meat Off the Menu

t’s lunchtime in Shanghai’s leafy former French Concession, and every table is crammed at David Yeung’s new café and grocery, Green Common. Office workers and shoppers huddled against the January chill are wolfing down plates of katsu curry, noodles and . For Yeung, the popularity of his first outlet on the Chinese mainland is a source of considerable pride, given that its doors opened barely two weeks earlier. But he’s more pleased by its other distinction: no animal products grace the menu at all. Instead, plant-based alternative proteins, sourced from China, Korea and the U.S., are used...

he coordinated attack on the by a mob of insurrectionists was a dark day for our democracy. It was not a First Amendment-protected protest. It was not a political rally. It was a seditious and treasonous act. Not since the British burned down the White House in 1814 has an institution of our government been defiled in such an egregious and ugly manner. While the attack was shocking, it was not surprising. In the five years since Donald Trump descended the escalator at Trump Tower and announced his candidacy for President, we have seen an unprecedented and abnormal rise of violent right-wing...

aryanne Larrea, a young devotee of President Donald Trump, felt the sting of tear gas for the first time in her life on Jan. 6, when she marched among the crowd that Trump incited to storm the Capitol.

The U.S. Capitol Riot Was Years in the Making. Here's Why America Is So Divided
