The 41 Big Ideas That Got Us Talking in 2021
Is America no longer governable? Can psychedelics cure us? What’s in a Subway tuna fish sandwich? This December, Times Opinion is looking back at the most important — and absurd — debates of 2021. From the urgent conversations we had as a nation to the minor controversies that fascinated us, these are the things that got people talking, and talking, and talking … on Twitter, in the halls of Congress, on campus and at work. Taken together, the 41 responses in this package create a timeline of the year in opinion; we hope they make you think, laugh and discuss, and maybe, just maybe, one of them will change your mind.
