I think that the seeming vibe shift is simply because the '20 Summer of Love was not an organic thing but imposed by external pressure. Sometime not long after the Fall of Kabul the cues which all of the cuetakers were receiving changed. It started subtly as it became clear that the 'adults' being in charge was not only not benefiting most of us which was expected, but wasn't benefiting the ones who had put them there, which was unexpected.

The plandemic magnum opus of the planners went horribly awry, I still contend that they intended to look like saviours not incompetent boobs.(So strange to me that we call useless people by the name of the thing most essential to human survival and happiness on this earth. Must be a reference to a male breast that has somehow fallen out of the reference, like the famous plumber who loves male nipples--a type of pipe fitting.) I think that the ultimate reason must be because the narrative is not actually controlled for the benefit of liberals, that is a coincidence. The narrative is controlled for the benefit of the Pentagon, they have merely entirely coopted the American left.

If that is the case, then as the Left becomes less and less useful(people who can be made to believe absurdities can be made to commit atrocities, but they can only be made to commit them competently until the absurdities rot their brains) we will see the pendulum swing back toward the Right. In which case, the Second Coming of Trump is not a cause for celebration as many who seem to have come out of the bullshit will be right back in it when the pendulum swings and we may find ourselves out of the passive-aggressive nanny state and in more open hostilities without the allies we had been counting on.

Yes, the beast bared its fangs beginning in 2020. The second coming of Trump will be the notice that the beast has started to move. ☹️

There would be no issue if he had been killed by another Black. But let's be real, Blacks aren't going around doing vigilante interventions to protect White subway riders. The end goal of the movement is to remove Whites from public space, it's just a subset of the larger genocide program.

Emma Vigeland's reckless suicidal streak may be caused by toxoplasmosis. Wrong of her to assume we're all in the same state.

The bizarre thing is that the answer to solving many of these specific problems in one fell swoop is so painfully obvious that it's actually been done before, while everyone seems to look at this like some completely unanswerable, utterly useless string theory equation.

As I'm in the mood to answer flippantly...

Repeal the 19th? Haha

Here's a relevant anecdote about the 19th Amendment:

One one side of my family, my great-grandmother was too busy with the kids and the house and everything else to care much about politics; and besides, it mostly affected my great-grandfather anyway, so let him deal with it.

On the other side, which had just as many kids, there was quite a bit of debate before a consensus was reached and my other great-grandfather went and cast *their* vote.

Obviously this can't be extrapolated to every family in the US at the time, but we're talking about two averagely poor families in southern Ohio and northern Kentucky—not exactly the bastion of the women's lib movement.

Just imagine a time when politics wasn't trying to infect every waking moment of your life.

I'll just say I'm not going to emphatically disagree.

Good delineation, thanks. Her comments bring Betty Van Patter back to my mind.

Now for some contrast, and confirmation of your points: If you grew up in a city, try visiting an out of the way small town in east Texas, southern Mississippi, the panhandle of Florida, or along the bayou in Louisiana and you'll find yourself afraid. The people there know instantly "You ain't from around here." Sensing danger is something the human animal can do incredibly well. We had millions of years to get better at it.

As spoken well in the American Sniper. There are sheep. There are wolves. And, there are sheep dogs.

Wolves, although not seemingly in great number, exist in every location waiting to attack given the right moment. Sheep, especially sheep without a bellwether close by, are prime targets. Sheep dogs are probably the fewest in number.

If you are a sheep and find yourself in a bad situation, you'd better hope you have the luck of having a sheep dog nearby. Or, better yet, learn the skills to add to the sheep dog numbers.

What a great essay. My only regret is that Darwin doesn't step in more often to assist these fools in their learning. Cognitive dissonance is comfy until the stinky nut slides a shiv in your kidney.
