I just spent the past couple of days writing about something that utterly doesn’t matter. The United States is doomed, and there is no way to salvage it without it first collapsing. I believe the left’s plans to destroy the United States are moving along well, but, fortunately, leftists don’t know math. And that gives conservatives (i.e. those who want to restore the United States to its Constitutional state) a good opportunity.
First of all, the left’s hijacking of the public education system has produced generations of servile idiots who can’t think for themselves and have no useful skills. Second of all, the left’s hijacking of the culture (i.e. Hollywood) has effectively marginalized traditional American values (e.g. hard work, self-reliance, independence, and personal responsibility). These two things have caused most young people to lack the ability to think using logic, reason, common sense, and skepticism. Therefore, completely irrelevant subjects capture their attention, and they unquestioningly believe apocryphal narratives. For example, I am thoroughly convinced that the sole reason Obama was re-elected is that he was considered “cool.” That isn’t why everyone voted for him, certainly, but the people who did vote for him for that reason alone likely made up the difference. Basically, these are low (or no) information voters.
The left knows how to manipulate these people and their infantile intellects. Here is one way they do it, using memes (h/t Ace of Spades). In the era of the internet, when people don’t have the attention span to read a thoughtful article, they can just get all their information from websites like Twitter, Reddit (if you don’t what that is, neither do I), and now Upworthy.
Even though it is necessary, there is no way to make the right’s message of independence and personal responsibility appealing to these people. There is no way for the right to reach them at this point, and the next generation is likely lost as well, considering the public schools are still essentially left-wing indoctrination camps. And even if it was possible, the right would have to sink pretty low in order to even try to appeal to them. The only hope I can see at this point is that opportunity I mentioned before.
The left’s own policies are fundamentally unsustainable. I said before that it is because they don’t know math, but it is also possibly because the unsustainability is intentional (that is, they are using the Cloward-Piven strategy to cause the United States to collapse under its own debt so that it can be replaced by a socialist “utopia”). I’m not sure why they would have to use the Cloward-Piven strategy at this point, considering the left is already well on its way to socializing the United States and has already pretty much destroyed the U.S. Constitution, but who knows. Anyway, it is pretty much inevitable that the United States is going to collapse some time in the next decade or so, unless something unforeseen happens. Even if someone like Rand Paul were to be elected in 2016, I think the United States has already passed the point of no return (not that I’m an expert on anything). Anyway, once this collapse happens, it will be brutal. At this point, things could go a number of different ways, but I’m just hoping that it knocks some sense into most young people (it’s happened before, so it is possible).
Having said that, I suppose there are some good signs. The school choice movement seems to be growing, which might actually result in some kids getting actual educations. And, once again, Michigan has become a right-to-work state. That is a huge blow to the unions, which is a blow to the Democrat machine. And, while I don’t think this means much, the Democrats don’t have a lot of people to nominate in 2016, while the Republicans do. I say it probably doesn’t mean much because, whoever the Republicans nominate, he or she will be branded as a crazy, racist, Satanic banker who is also a pedophile that tortures kittens and eats Grandmas. On the other hand, the Democrat will still be “cool,” even if it is Joe Biden. But, I really don’t know. I’m a pessimist, and I can’t see myself becoming anything else until things get better.
