"Return to normalcy” was Warren G. Harding’s 1920 presidential campaign slogan. And there was a lot to return to normalcy from. We had just been through not only World War I but also the flu pandemic of 1918, which infected a third of the earth’s population and caused 675,000 deaths in the United States.
The thing is that if normalcy means a return to the way we were before, that never happens, and never can happen.
