I am not sure if this editorial is pay-walled, but you get the idea. It is captured in a quote from FDR in 1936 about the meaning of “liberty.”
“Liberty,” Roosevelt said at the Democratic Party’s convention in 1936, “requires opportunity to make a living — a living decent according to the standard of the time, a living which gives man not only enough to live by, but something to live for.”
The pandemic has shown that vast numbers of Americans – probably a majority of younger people – do not have such liberty. In the aftermath this has to be fixed.
