What is the United States of America? A society of elitists vs. the rest? A culture that’s given up on itself? A land of censorship? A nation in which policies and orientation are not merely matters of disagreement but causes of internal and irreconcilable turmoil? It was supposed to be none of these. But today it seems a foreign place, with more in common with the many dystopias of literature than anything the founders of a free nation ever imagined.
Just a single quick scan through the blogs and aggregators of the Internet makes us wonder who and where we are as a nation:
- Many of those who hold political, economic, and cultural power favor the system of China, where a single-party autocracy “led by a reasonably enlightened group of people” who live privileged lives plan and execute a top-down national plan the entire country is expected to follow without objection.
- At the same time, this class believes it is its job to oversee the decline of America.
- Voter fraud and election theft have become normalized nationally rather than confined to big cities run by Democrat political machines.
