Contrary to popular belief, particularly prevalent in superficially stable (pre-pandemic) liberal democracies, government is an exercise in engineering and competence—not morality. What COVD-19 has demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt is how poorly engineered many governments are—and how easily that can manifest as abject incompetence in the face of a real crisis. This is not because their employees are immoral (necessarily; they may be immoral as well). They do not have the wrong ideas about how to govern. “Don’t let millions die in a pandemic,” is an idea all would get behind. They have the wrong incentives, responsibilities, capabilities, and competencies.

 
And preceding that:

 

“The division in politics can be summarized as between

+ Embedded, complexity-minded, multiscale/fractal localists (politics as an ecology/complex adaptive system)

+ Abstract one-dimensional universalists & monoculturalists (politics as a top-down engineering project)”

Democrats need to learn experts aren’t always right

Republicans need to learn experts aren’t always wrong

Libertarians need to learn that a state can succeed

Progressives need to learn that a state can fail
