It has become evident to everyone that the effort to hold back COVID-19 is not conducive of either an easy or a quick fix.
This is going to be a long and difficult ordeal that will test the fabric of our nation, both collectively and individually.
No one among us is immune to the effects of this plague. It will reach into every corner and crevasse of society, regardless of age, gender, fame, or wealth.
The $2 trillion relief bill that Congress approved last week is just the beginning of what promises to be the unlimited spending of vast sums in order to provide all Americans, from the biggest corporations to individual citizens, the means by which they can make it through to the other side of this pandemic, however long that may take.
With almost all of the country essentially quarantined in place, these additional, enormous government outlays will be the only available option to ensure that no American goes hungry and to save hundreds of thousands of businesses, both big and small, from disappearing forever.
Unlimited government spending to achieve these ends also will be necessary to prevent our society from descending into a state of total anarchy.
