1 12 377

Archaeologists in Norway have discovered what appears to be a Viking longship buried in the ground.

The COVID pandemic has been the great tragedy of our time, not just for America but for the world. In America’s case, however, the pandemic’s wake has exposed a landscape overflowing with other toxins, from mindless lockdowns and defunding the police to Antifa, critical race theory, social media censorship, Big Lies, and fake news.

Americans are ready to hit the reset button. But how?

We find ourselves in a chaotic and uncertain world from our city streets and schools to the Delta variant. The old rules no longer apply -- the new rules have yet to be written. We navigate these dangerous and volatile seas at our own risk.

It’s time to think like Vikings. Those formidable sea warriors from Scandinavia learned how to not only survive but thrive in the chaos of Dark Age Europe. They offer us some powerful lessons on how to navigate our post-COVID rapids, and how to renew the American experiment in a fast-moving high-tech age.
