There was a lot to regret about this election cycle – social media oligopolies abandoned every vestige of impartiality, American cities went up in flames as racial tensions reached a fever pitch, the mainstream media turned into a protection racket for the candidate they favored and a pandemic arrived from China just when it seemed like President Trump was coasting to re-election.
