I'm not saying you have to agree with it, but there's a lot of wisdom here:
Yeah, we're jumping into the deep end of the pool.
Some hard truths ahead.
I could get into a discussion of the American Founders' thoughts on the popular vote, but let's keep going before I lose you.
The thread ends with this:
We won't have decades or centuries of GAE [Great American Empire] tyranny (or Chinese tyranny) if they can't find the manpower to run their gulags, indoctrination centers, surveillance agencies, etc. because they can barely keep the supply chain, etc. running.
The logic is simple.
The Americans of the second half of the 20th century wanted an idyllic, moral, beautiful society as seen in a Norman Rockwell painting.
But they also wanted the sexual revolution.
Now that these Americans are getting older, many are trying to pump the brakes on the things they started.
For decades, I've been hearing people warn about what was going to happen in America if divorce and promiscuity was the norm, and if feelings and experiences were more important than facts and responsibility. If something had been done about it 20 years ago, maybe America would have stood a chance.
It's too late. We are about to reap what we've sown – not just since Obama became president, not since Big Tech took over, not since Justin Trudeau put on blackface – but since at least the 1950s, with roots stretching back to the Enlightenment and beyond.
I know most of you reading this were not even alive when the seeds of our destruction were planted.
And yet, such is the cycle of history. The Roman Republic overthrew the kings in 509 BC. For nearly 500 years, it flourished.
Inevitably, it became an empire that was corrupt and hedonistic to the core. That empire burned brightly, but it fizzled out within several hundred years despite being the only major power of its time. The only thing that survived it is the Christian Church.
Therein you have your recipe for outlasting the decline. Sowing the seeds for a new future begins now.
