It becomes more and more clear that the robber barons of the Deep State – few of whom work for the US Government, of course (it goes mostly the other way round) – have for the most part, and despite the burgeoning daring work of the 3% who resist (thanks, Tucker!), taken over. They’ve rigged the game, throughout – all the games – for their benefit.
This right now is the transition from Democracy to Ochlocracy, which has been predicted, and many times seen, for more than 2,000 years.
Once the ochlocracy is fully implemented, tyranny – the ascendance of one ochlocrat above all the others – will soon ensue. Indeed, the important ochlocrats must already have their knives at each other’s throats. That’s just how it works, in a low trust society: defective equilibrium sucks, but suck it up and take it, all you who depended upon it and ordered your lives in accordance thereto. Who lives by defection dies by a thousand small defections; indeed, of such defects does his very life consist. Sad!
Then, shortly after the ochlocracy has been perfected in a new and horrible tyranny, it will be on to monarchy. Send it, Lord, and that right soon! May our first tyrant soon begin to feel himself at bottom a man of his own people, and to them loyal. Then might we have a shot at some sort of basic civility, and so prosperity, and peace.
At inflection points of geopolitical history such as these, it’s wise to keep all options open, and credible. Hell, Mel Gibson could be king. I could live with that. What I want in a king most of all is a man who is not afraid to tell me things he feels to be true and that he feels sure will scare me, perhaps to his own detriment. So, I look for a man who *just doesn’t care what people think about his “outrageous” views.* Bring it on. The more outrageous, the better. I mean, come on: given the fantastic delusions about sex and race of our adversaries, what have we to lose by being outrageous in return?
It’s rebellion and restoration, or getting your nuts cut off, and your nose, and your tongue. Choose.
PS: Could Elon be a good king? Sure. Could there be a better? Sure. Of course. But, let’s not let the perfect drive out the good, OK boys? At this point, we need above all a guy who will tell it honestly as he sees it, whatever his other weaknesses.
One way or another, there shall soon – as “soon” is accounted under the purview of the millennia – be again a king of the West. God grant I live to see it.
