Jay W. Richards, et al.

Summary via publisher (Regnery)
For the first time in history, the world shut itself down—by choice—all for fear of a virus, COVID-19, that wasn’t well understood.

Churches cancelled worship services. “Social distancing” went from a non-word to a moral obligation overnight. Moral preening on social media achieved ever new heights. The world will reopen and life will go on, but what kind of world will it be when it does? It can’t be what it was, because of what’s just happened.
