I think we’re using the word “crisis” wrong most of the time.
I don’t usually make such pronouncements, and, frankly, as someone who recognizes that language changes based on how it is used, I’m uncomfortable doing even this.
But right now we seem to have a crisis glut.
North Korea’s nuclear program is a crisis. Immigration is a crisis. Health care is a crisis.
Traditionally, the word “crisis” has referred to a turning point, a time after which everything would dramatically and suddenly change.
