Covid

If social distancing is over and we are able to hold this event, our speaker this year will be journalist and author Stephen Kinzer!

His latest article, “The Coronavirus Pandemic is a Failure of Imagination“, ran in the Boston Globe Ideas section on March 22, and concluded:

“This pandemic is a wake-up call from the future. It tells us that we need to re-imagine what we mean by the term “security threat.” The scariest threats to human security no longer come from armies or hostile nations. They now come from forces that endanger us all. If this pandemic teaches us only that — if it leads us to begin focusing on emerging threats rather than continuing to fight old wars — it will have brought good along with tragedy.”
