Editor Chris Klotz recently published a remarkable collection of essays by 34 thought leaders titled Canary in a Covid World: How Propaganda and Censorship Changed Our (My) World.
Chris just tweeted an excerpt from my essay (Chapter 27) “ On Stupidity : Dietrich Bonhoeffer's theory explains much of the COVID-19 Pandemic Response.”
Readers of this Substack are familiar with my reflections on Bonhoeffer’s famous essay. However, for my essay in Canary in a Covid World, I greatly expanded my reflections on how Bonhoeffer’s observations of the German people in the thirties and early forties serve as a useful interpretive framework for examining the incredibly stupid COVID-19 Pandemic response in the United States, Canada, the UK, Australia, and (of all places) Germany, whose stupid public officials should have known better.
Please share Chris’s tweet of Chapter 27) “ On Stupidity : Dietrich Bonhoeffer's theory explains much of the COVID-19 Pandemic Response ” with your networks, and please consider buying the book!
