Plato, the great classical philosopher, once said, “The measure of a man is what he does with power.” As contemporary political leaders are faced with global challenges that threaten our world, how they use their power will determine humanity’s collective future. Future generations will remember this moment distinctly and evaluate our endeavors and our failures based on what we could have done but did not. They will likely say that we could have come together around a common response in the face of a global pandemic, but we did not. They will be amazed how little effort we have spent in preserving the environment and slowing down climate change. They will hold us responsible for the plight of millions of displaced persons and refugees around the world. Yes, they will judge us and do it harshly because, honestly, we will have deserved it.
