#1 This whole diversity schtick disgusts me no ends.

The idea that the color of your skin determines your ideas and values is about the most racist philosophy I know of. I'm sure that Messers Douglas, Thomas, King, Sowell, et al would not agree.

#2 I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character their ethnicity, religion, political affiliation, and preferred gender.

Fixed it for you, Dr. King.

#3 The parallels between American politics and the demagogue pissing contests that are called democracy in India are as never before. At first I thought, the Indian political class blindly apes the west and it's just symptomatic of that. But looking at the global hostility to majority consensus, democratic imperatives and legitimate republicanism - I think it's because liberal parties everywhere are all playing from the same book. Unwittingly ?

Why would you want to destroy your own economy ? Practically ensure that your kids never breathe easy outside their guarded homes ? Make yourself reliant upon the whims of an unforgiving and fickle structure like socialism ?

It's like a common doctrine captures the minds of all these "elites" and "intellectuals". It has similar trends that seek to normalize themselves in every society at the same time. The atheism, the rebellion and obstruction, the class and race division, the polarization dressed as diversity, scorn for nationalist or conservative views, a denial of the misanthropy of islam, the glorification and normalization of immorality and pomp... I could go on, but we all know the pattern.

In my part of the world, the Right is winning simply because they are cruder and meaner than the left. They capture power and hang on to it like Putin or Xi. I don't think any American conservative leader is equipped with that kind of crazy, and maybe that is all right. That would again lead to tyranny.

It's a very difficult situation. The deepState won't let go, the swamp can't be cleared out even in two terms. Trump has no other like him. Somehow, within a few years the American public will have to be educated about the reality of the democrats. Decades of liberal schooling shall have to be worked against to wash out the garbage. You'll have to start at the schools, academia, families. But it can be done. The only way to reverse the madness is if sanity comes from within, a tug-of-war can only be carried on for so long.

Jr. If you notice how the family is working in the administration. I hate family cabals, but you got to go to war with the army you have, if its focused on dismantling Deep State.

#5 Liberal schooling is a failure. These young people today have little interest in the media. A self driven individual will live and learn on their own. There are of plenty of those people fortunately. Yes, the Trump family are good examples.
