CGTN: America’s awful coronavirus story

In my latest editorial for CGTN, I challenge America to be better in the ongoing battle with coronavirus.

That notion of national sacrifice contributed to America’s efforts to eliminate anti-Semitic and dangerously nationalistic leadership in Germany, Japan and elsewhere during World War II. However, over time, the nation that spoke of “we” now cares too much about “me.” Self-sacrifice for the national good is just one of many democratic values not being practiced to a sufficient degree in the country that claims it is the beacon of democracy around the world.
