"Before there was coronavirus, before there was the contentious 2020 election or the entire Trump presidency, there was a year that proved to be a turning point for American politics and the fate of the nation. That was 2000, the last year America went unchallenged in geopolitical dominance, the year Mark Burnett created Survivor and a new form of celebrity, the year a young Cuban immigrant became the focus of a media circus, the year Donald Trump flirted with running for president (and failed miserably), the year a group of Al Qaeda operatives traveled to America to learn to fly planes. They all converged in Florida, where that fall the most important presidential election in generations was decided by the slimmest margin imaginable. But the year 2000 was also the moment when the authority of the political system was undermined by technical malfunctions; when the legal system was compromised by the justices of the Supreme Court; when the financial system was devalued by deregulation, speculation, creative securitization, and scam artistry; when the mainstream news media was destabilized by the propoganda power of Fox News and the supercharged speed of the internet; when the influence of so-called cultural elites was diminished by a dawning recognition of its irrelevance."--
