TEDxWrigleyville 2020 Theme: “Humanity, a View From Inside the Pandemic,” filmed inside Wrigley Field (Chicago) amidst civil unrest and with full compliance of Covid-19 related quarantine restrictions. Professor Joshua Kleinfeld taps in to the truth that this pandemic goes beyond a public health crisis to also serve as a test of our form of government. In times of disaster, are authoritarian regimes more effective than democracies? As the world watches the battle between the two, Professor Kleinfeld sets out the steps necessary for democracy to prevail despite disaster.
