Professor Joshua Kleinfeld, who teaches moral philosophy and criminal law at Northwestern University’s Pritzker School of Law, recently delivered a TEDx Talk entitled “Democracy and the Pandemic.” This short lecture is part of the TEDxWrigleyville Series on “Humanity, A View From Inside the Pandemic” filmed inside Wrigley Field. Professor Kleinfeld discusses how the pandemic began as a medical and public-health crisis and has become a test of our form of government. He speaks to the hope Americans ought to have, even in dark times, and provides three reasons for hope in American democracy.
