The Trump haters (“Haters,” for short)

08 Dec

are playing a very dangerous game. THIS is how you destroy the country. De-legitimize the Constitutional “rules” we all play be and we devolve into a might-makes-right society. We devolve into a society ruled by the Samurai with “kill-and-depart” ethics. We can indeed disagree, but unlawful resistance is really devastating. Totally devastating. Otherwise you have to have a strongman (like Putin) at the top to hold things together by force. And those millstones grind exceedingly fine…

And lots of folks on the Right are talking about things like a “divorce” among states. They are “Preppers” and moving to Montana and building retreats. They are mad as Hell, and we get a glimpse of that in the writings of Kurt Schlicter and other cultural barometers. And they are getting far more common. I mean, if I had said, “Prepper” 10 years ago you would not have known what I meant. But now you do. THAT alone should tell you something! It is getting widespread.

Please understand that these snowflake tantrums are cumulatively damaging. THAT is why you are seeing Conservative push-back. THAT is why you are seeing “Preppers.” Once those snowflake tantrums become culturally acceptable, what then? If I don’t feel that a speed limit is right for ME, why should I bow to enforcement authorities? I mean, it’s easy to mock these whiney snowflakes, but we don’t want to miss the HUGE threat that they actually are to our society. They are indeed an existential threat, and the mindless and doting and supine parents have pretty much caused this. This is a result of what I call PPP–Piss-Poor Parenting. But be that as it may, this was very predictable. This is the legacy of the 60s! Uh, they were NOT the greatest generation…

Like ALL Leftism/coercion, it sounds good on the surface. It fools those of good intent (and it fools MANY, some of whom you wouldn’t expect to be fooled). But the end result is still damnation.

France was once

25 Nov

a great country. but its days are now numbered. Probably. And it won’t be hard to count that high–a child could do it. I hope it’s not too late to change, but that horizon is rapidly approaching if it is not already here.

Basically, France said to the militant Islam crowd, “Eat me last!” Well, when you lie down with pigs, don’t be shocked if you get some mud on you…

This is the kind of crap that will lead to President Marine Le Pen. Just like it has led to President Trump, here. And maybe Marine Le Pen can halt the decline–I sure hope so. Electing her is a frantic last-ditch effort to save the ship of state. But I just don’t see how France can survive for long if it keeps on this same track.

See, the hidebound traditionalists tell themselves that everything will stay the same, that the world of our parents and grand-parents is also OUR world. Well, that is just not true. “Conservatism” is not so much preserving the world structure as we have always known it. It is preserving the principles.

We need to understand that real Conservatism is, in fact, change. Liberals are “conservative” in the sense of holding to an old-school Stalinist Communism and Leftism. It is a throwback to 40 years ago. It is the Right that wants to throw all that dirty bathwater out–and there simply is no baby in it. Even some on the Right are not adequately flexible in this respect. We call such people, “moderates.” The issue is the principles!
