Yesterday, a concerned friend sent a link to an article by talk show host Dennis Prager, establishing four reasons that American civilization is doomed to destruction, it's simply a matter of time till the end. After finishing a reply, the result seemed worth the posting.
"It takes a lot to build a civilization, and though it is much easier to destroy a civilization, it takes a lot to do that, too.
"No. 1: Victimhood.
"No. 2: Demonization.
"No. 3: A Cause To Believe In.
"No. 4: Lies.
"The public self-debasement demanded of anyone who differs with the left — like New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees just did when he said not standing for the national anthem desecrated the flag and those who have died for it — happens almost daily. The only difference between this and what dissidents underwent during Mao’s Cultural Revolution is that the self-debasement here is voluntary — thus far.
The reply to my friend follows:
Prager’s point makes sense, but I think he’s a few days late and a couple of dollars short. The uprisings, riots, shootings and the like are all reflective of a population locked in their homes with no firm idea of when, if ever, they’d get out and return to earning incomes and living their lives as usual. But as of today, 73% of those that were in isolation are now out.
Most importantly regarding the general public, as reflected by the Dow Jones and Nasdaq, Trump the magician has unexpectedly already begun turning the country around. And as said by Clinton’s guy Carville in 1992, “It’s the economy, stupid."
So, if anything is irreparably lost, it’s going to be the likes of New York, Los Angeles, Detroit and Chicago along with considerable numbers of other leftist strongholds that have gone the chute and very well might stay there. While damage to them all has been incredible, huge numbers of middle-class taxpayers have already left.
So, not only is Prager likely wrong about any kind of national destruction, its’ going to be the Democrat party, or what’s left of it, that will be shredded because most of the membership including Blacks and Hispanics will be too busy working again to listen to Soros’s thugs, Pelosi, Schumer and whatever’s left of Biden.
That's it for today folks.
