On the eve of the 2016 election, I thought America was done as a constitutional republic. I simply did not see how the country could avoid completing the project that Barack Obama kick-started.
While maintaining the appearance of democracy, America was doomed to descend into Marxist-styled authoritarianism with eight years of Hillary Clinton on the docket.
President Trump’s shocking election delayed that infernal outcome, which is why the reaction to him was as fierce as it was over the next four years. He postponed the final steps in the transformation from America the Beautiful into America the Canceled. But, even during the early years of Trump’s term, with the toxic culture in place, it always seemed as though it would merely delay the descent.
The release of COVID gave the cultural Marxists the environment they needed to rig the game and to set conditions for permanent power. That’s what we just watched play out during the midterms.
The biggest silver lining for me in contemplating the election is that perhaps this is what American needs to reverse the course that it is on. In the short term, Americans will experience horrific levels of pain and despair, which is heart-wrenching.
For the foreseeable future, not only won’t life get better; it will get far worse. As the character of Thomas Andrews said in Titanic when told that the ship surely couldn’t sink, “I assure you, she can. And she will. It is a mathematical certainty.”
America is now like that ship. To avoid that pain, America would have to radically change course, and that is not going to happen any time soon.
The response to the worsening conditions will be ever louder demonization, demagoguery, persecution, and injustice.
In two years, the energy-starved economy will be in tatters, the national debt bomb that may already be beyond defusing will be even bigger (and perhaps will have even gone off, to catastrophic global effect), and the world will be a far more brutish and dangerous place.
