This morning The New Republic and The Bulwark simultaneously published an Open Letter (linked here to each publication). This effort, organized by Todd Gitlin, Jeffrey Isaac and Bill Kristol, brings together an array of writers from the left to the right, from Noam Chomsky to Mona Charen, from Michael Walzer to Max Boot, from Dahlia Lithwick to Damon Linker. I am honored to be among them and joined by fellow contributors here, Laura Field and George Thomas.
This is a moment of democratic crisis and the reasons to call attention to it this way are well described in the letter and in this follow-up piece by Jeffrey C. Isaac here.
Update: in subsequent days a number of other venues republished the open letter, including the magazine Dissent.
