My biggest fear is that we’re a country on the brink of civil war. The formerly fringe cuckoo-bird left has risen to such power and prominance in certain pockets of our society, particularly in higher education, and their adherants are so ready to take up violent and dangerous methods against those they’ve been taught to believe are their “enemies” that many of the “saner” elements of the American middle have been driven towards accepting the possibility that they have no choice but align themselves with those who are prepared to take violent measures to stop that fringe.
Today the internet erupted when a young man posted a picture of a young woman in a classroom on her laptop which sported a Trump sticker, and he said “7000 retweets and i’ll smash this bitch’s computer“. He got more than thrice that many retweets and favorites.* This is not an isolated incident. People are unsafe on campuses across America, threatened and roughed up by fellow students and -worse- faculty and staff. How bad are things going to be when these kids get out of school and into the real world? “You lost this one, bro” indeed!
Things are coming to head in the 2016 election in which conservatism has been traded for nationalist populism because people are scared that it’s the only thing that will keep them safe from crusty old communists being propped up by violent millenial agitators. Lucky for us, America is a large enough country that once people actually do start shooting each other in the streets, there’s a decent chance that it won’t be YOUR street that it’s happening on.
I try to stay out of the weeds of politics, I really do, but these days, I’m scared. I’m honest to god for real scared, because there doesn’t seem to be any safe exit strategy. Even if there were a magic unicorn running this cycle who was going to do all of the right things and set America on the road to recovery, there’s no fixing the millions of useless, willfully ignorant, and sociopathically dangerous and violent millenials who are shrieking in faces, smearing themselves with fake blood, carrying mattresses around campuses, calling for an end to free speech, bullying and abusing fellow students in the name of equality and progress, stuffing spaghettios in their vag, and all other manner of entirely worthless or destructive activities being cranked out of the American university system.
John Dewey played the long game and won. It took a century, but by introducing cultural marxism into the education system and working it into every level, progressivism finally was able to create a large enough mass of brainwashed youth to effectively destroy an entire generation’s ability to become productive and useful members of a free society.
I really do pick the worst times to start new entrepreneurial ventures!
*:New reports are out that he actually punched the woman in the hallway AFTER being let go by campus authorities.
