Michael Winship writes: “Despite Joe Biden and Kamala Harris being in the White House, we remain in existential peril.” A big step toward tyranny is Senator Joe Manchin who announced he will not support an end to the filibuster which has to end if democracy is going to survive. Former senior writer for Moyers and Company, Winship argues by putting his fear about re-election first, he is enabling: the continued rule of corporate money, a new version of Jim Crow laws, blocking a revamp of criminal justice and law enforcement, and gun safety laws. In the choice he makes, Manchin will either be known as the man who defended democracy in its darkest hour or the Democrat who helped the Right subvert our democracy.
