A weekly series reimagining a better society post COVID-19. Over the last five months we have looked broadly at the social contract, narrowly at the changes we’d like to make within ourselves, and consistently at the changes we’d like to see in society. How does our contemporary conception of a good society shape our engagement with the cultures we have inherited? How do we decide whether or how to “cancel culture”? How do we balance recognizing the past, preserving the past, or discarding the past as we try to imagine a more free, just, and equitable future?
