Michelle Goldman has assumed a columnist position at the New York Times. Gail Collins interviewed her today, September 25, in The Conversation (1). In an exchange related to the possibility that Trump may choose to follow a path to war, Goldman said:
Yeah, I think we’re learning that the Constitution may, in fact, be a suicide pact. It’s a source of constant astonishment to me that the country has handed over the means to destroy civilization on this planet to an unhinged lunatic who lost the popular vote and was installed with the aid of a hostile foreign power. It’s such an epic institutional failure that it calls everything we thought we knew about this country’s stability into question.
Very Powerful Words. It’s time for a constitutional convention, as scary as that may be in a country full of people and legislators that can put a person like Donald Trump in its top job.
Must read her first column tomorrow. (2)
