Now that “RussiaGate” is over (granting it may not be) what are the lessons to be learned?
Some areas to explore are media, politics, culture, law and the Constitution, but lessons learned need not be restricted to any one of these.
For myself, I have become more receptive to a political theory I never gave much thought to when I was young: the notion that secrecy, blackmail and conspiracy are main drivers of the engines of power. This notion has been a great awakening for me.
The open question, however is not quite so specific. What should we be thinking about now?
