I know that everyone is having kittens over the gun control laws that are in our very near future, imposed by our Dear Leader out of his love for us and his benevolent will. But I just can’t join in that chorus. Not because I believe the bullsh*t caricature of the average American gun owner as portrayed by our pompous elitist pseudo-intellectuals in the media, but because I believe that every good thing comes to an end, and beautiful things die when they are not attended to. We have neglected our personal freedoms and abdicated our role are cultural caretakers for too long. And I don’t think we can be saved. We are going to lose our rights in an overt fashion now precisely because we gave them up piecemeal over decades of apathetic navel-gazing.
Scream all you like, but the country as a whole reelected this demagoguing, cynical prat, and we get what’s coming to us. These things can and will happen to us. We’ve lost all the battles that matter, which means we will lose the war.
I don’t mean to say that we should stop fighting it, but that we need to reexamine our tactics. The war of ideas was lost long ago to a group that values neither reason not logic nor ideas. We’re fighting smart bombs with trench warfare.
Or trench warfare with smart bombs. No, that’s not right because we’re losing. I don’t know.
