The events of Jan. 6 in the U.S. Capitol heightened concern across the country that the stability of the United States constitutional republic is being tested in significant ways.
But it’s an exam that we are surviving thus far, writes leadership expert Marty Linsky in an essay published in the Winter 2021 edition of The Journal, the Kansas Leadership Center’s civic issues magazine. That’s the good news, writes Linsky, a long-influential voice in KLC’s development.
The bad news is that keeping the republic going forward won’t be easy. Looking beyond the deadly pandemic, a bitter presidential election, the incidents at the Capitol, and even Inauguration Day on Jan. 20, Linsky argues that the path to keeping the republic will be paved with painful compromises for Americans of all political persuasions.
Linsky’s provocative cover essay features illustrations by Anthony Russo, who has drawn for both The New Yorker, The New York Times and a number of other prominent publications.
Also featured in the edition:
- A column of the 7 destructive sins of civic engagement
- The opportunities that exist for President Biden to bridge the rural-urban divide
- How the pandemic is creating opportunities for entrepreneurship
- The role of child care in paving rural economic development
- How cities are embracing technology like never before
- Elevate 2021, which brings new commentator voices to issues such as polarization, educational equity and higher.
