If we have to fight this hard to beat a man who is demonstrably a moronic, incompetence tyrant, then that pretty much answers the macro political question of the era. In other words, American democracy is dead and we’re living in a new era of an autocratic “managed democracy.”
On a macro level, at least, the bad guys have won for the foreseeable future. Some pretty existential problems exist in the American body politic and there won’t be any demographic solutions for 20 to 40 years. Darkness has fallen.
I have no idea what the practical answer to any of this is. But I do know that the vast majority of Twitter liberals are living in a delusional lala land. They still think we’re living in a liberal democracy when we obviously definitely are not. The only thing I can think of is we need to stop scoring points on Twitter and start thinking about practical ways we can save what we can of civil society.
But, like I said, there are no easy answers. We’re going to have to start acting like we’re in a fascist state because, lulz, we are. Even if somehow Trump manages to self-own at just the right moment in the fall, there are at least a half-dozen younger, more focused fascists who have learn all they need to from Trump to make his vision of America a reality.
Again, the point is — a very passionate, organized 38% of the electorate has seen the last 3 1/2 years and said to themselves, “Man, I want some more of THAT.” As such, the thing that Twitter liberals are so oblivious about is the very thing that they see as a nightmare, a decent sized portion of the electorate sees as something to look forward to.
We’re just going to have to get used to living in a fascist state. We’re going to have to start preparing for when the media is purged and people are either snatched off the street or pushed out of windows. It’s going to happen, all we don’t know is the details at this point.
People are going to have to start risking things in real life in part because they’re not going to have any choice.
