Who are the true patriots? The boorish protesters? The boorish defenders of sham elections? Bill Belichick?
For ‘self-rule’ to be viable, a lot of mature people need to use their freedom well for the common good. So, with today’s dominant forces (in society) driving people to be infantile, activist, self(ie)-seekers, everyone’s existence and that of society is imperiled.
The Year of the Steal (with society stolen by Covid response, ‘racial justice’ movement, and sham election) demanded a coherent response by American citizens. But, alas, the infantilism and disintegration wrought by American education and culture has left Americans incapable of mounting a serious defense of their own society, and instead has made them protagonists in its decline.
