Good read. Best line: they know they are lying, we know they are lying, they know that we know they are lying.
An interesting though too long piece. The author makes some very salient points but at times gets bogged down in needless details and double speak. However, I think it’s an important and unique perspective. The biggest takeaways for me are 1) our large institutions are all hopelessly corrupt but have been for several decades – 2020 was finally the tipping point. The frog finally noticed it is boiling. 2) We are never going back to the way we conservatives want America to be. We must instead adapt. It dawned on me that what we conservatives are now experiencing must be no more jarring than what the WW2 generation experienced in the 60s…those who came of age in the 1930s to 1950s must not have recognized the country by 1969. We also can’t expect our kids to be as concerned with the state of things as their frame of reference is totally different, no matter how good a job we do educating them on the awful state of the country and the dangers of leftism. The only thing I really disagree with is the “you are powerless, everyone is powerless” sentiment….that it’s all in God’s hands now. I believe strongly in the divine but I also believe in the duty, responsibility and power of good, moral, ethical people to fight for freedom as will as the ability to succeed.
Nonetheless, this is a very important article.
