…tyranny is probably established out of no other regime than democracy. â€“ Plato
Plato describes the joys of Democracy well in The Republic. Andrew (((Sullivan))) muses on what the great philosopher has to tell us about our current society.
Can anyone doubt that this has happened both on The Left and on The Right. George Soros wisely LBOâ€™d both Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter so that the Leftist cattle would be herded and eventually stashed back into their veal fattening pens. The Right seems more pleasantly rogue with Donald Trump attempting to grow into the role of Optimate. With the left populists properly babysat and dominated by their Silicon Valley Overkings; the extent to which the Cathedral is threatened by resentment of the elite will be decided by one simple question. Whither/wither Right Wing Populism?
The end result of feminism is something that a lot of men really enjoy. They get widened sexual access and no real responsibility for the resulting offspring. For women on an intellectual, social and professional level of Carly Fiorina, feminism is a screaming buy. For those who struggle without structure and who get picked off by high time-preference, low moral fiber, sexually predatory men; this is what feminism does for them.
The consequential impact of the â€œHey Misterâ€ society is that 41% of the children in Amerika are bastards. Plato predicted how this would work out as well. Sullivan continues his philosophy discussion below.
So you destroy the elite, you destroy the dad, you go rip-@ss on whatâ€™s left of the family. This ripens your society for what? Well, at first, itâ€™s Ollie, Ollie Oxen. Free! Free! Free! But as the consequences of freedumb pile up and we begin amusing ourselves to death; we begin to see the horror. How does one react to horror? Plato, Andrew Sullivan and Kevin Williamson all opine that you ultimately get the Father Führer. I think youâ€™re lucky if thatâ€™s as bad as it gets.
You see weâ€™ve posited a society that is supposed to take diverse parts and fuse them like a McDonaldâ€™s Chicken McNugget into some form of workable hybrid. E Pluribus Unum, I presume. But hereâ€™s what happens instead. You get lots of people that just canâ€™t make this work. You trust them with more power and responsibility than they will ever be worthy of. They have more freedumb than they know how to handle. It leaves this Mook to wonder “E Pluribus WTF?”
The tyranny Andrew Sullivan soils his shorts over is just the mechanism. This, right here is how democracies all ultimately die.
