The traditional news media failed to carry it live, showing reruns etc, instead, but the world is burning up with realization that Biden called for America to wake up and save its democracy.

Biden did something remarkable. He didn’t just invite people, regular sane people — who’ve not had a voice, a leader, representation, but been crying out, for God’s sake, for our leaders to get in the fight, say something, do something, anything — to “get involved” in “hope and change” or what not, the usual anodyne ways political speeches end. He said, right out loud, that it was every sane person’s responsibility and duty to defend democracy from those who are attacking it existentially — regardless of their minor-league partisan politics. He made it a matter of responsibility and duty to history, the future, and each other.

In other words, Biden issued not just a political call — but something much, much more vital: he issued a moral directive.
