Larry Diamond On America's COVID-19 Disaster

Book cover for "Ill Winds" by Larry Diamond

Larry Diamond is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University and author of the book "Ill Winds: Saving Democracy from Russian Rage, Chinese Ambition, and American Complacency."

He just published a related piece in The Atlanticon why America’s COVID-19 disaster is a setback for democracy. In dealing with the crisis, Diamond says China was able to implement drastic measures to get its house in order while democracies around the world are floundering.

Here in the United States, where we are preparing for a Presidential election, Diamond argues that COVID-19 threatens to undo our social fabric and our political process.
