The goal is to get through this while introducing as few new forms of
massive suffering or destruction as possible.

Usually in the US we have a flipflop between republican and democrat
babbling figureheads.

Most people don't discuss that if you know something secret and are willing
to risk more than anyone else, you can get the whole nation to do whatever
you want, and it used to be that if you tried to pull that somebody would
use it to gently reign things in: not to start a competition with you.

The goal is to get through this without hurting huge groups of people any
