I’ve been so fixated on the Project 2025 conspiracy that I was totally oblivious to the real conspiracy — Agenda 47. While, as I understand it, Project 2025 is the theory for our looming autocratic Christian ethnostate, Agenda 47 is the conspiracy that is actually doing the nuts-and-bolts work to make that nightmare a reality.
Now, obviously, there is the issue of Trump having to win first for any of this to matter. And he could still lose. Which, of course, opens the possibility that he might, unto himself, cause a civil war in an effort to stay out of prison.
But for the sake of argument, we have to accept that there is a pretty good chance that malignant ding-dong Trump is going to be the next POTUS. As such, Agenda 47 may play a huge role in the future of the United States.
We have to accept that everything that was bad about Trump’s first term will be taken to a severe next level during his second administration. It’s going to suck really, really bad. There are two things to remember about this situation. One is, it won’t happen in a political vacuum. In other words, Trump can try to strangle American democracy all he wants to — there is a good chance people will fight back.
And two, the whole thing is a setup for whomever happens to be Trump’s successor. It’s Trump’s successor who will be our long-term autocrat. The person who starts to really lean into the America First vision of a white Christian ethnostate.
All I want to do is be a traditionally published author. And here I am, worried I’ll be shot dead by ICE at some point after starting in 2025.
