I’ve been burnt out lately on the current events stuff I was to be posting about, and so have re-focussed more on food stuff lately, which I’m enjoying far more, truth be told. Perhaps I’ll do some sort of current bullshit roundup post every Sunday or something, just to keep some ideas and analysis flowing both ways. Plus, I’m just numb with leftist no-sense, and the social-justice stuff is enough to make me want to vomit my guts. I digress.
Here’s a very solid piece of writing and because it’s on Facebook (go give it a Like or Share), I’ll quote it entirely here, for the benefit of those who, unlike me, are smart enough to stay away from Facebook. It’s by Robert Bidinotto, author of the Hunter series of vigilante novels. I haven’t read them yet, but they’re highly regarded and I’m confident I’ll love them once I do. Bidinotto is a very smart man. I remember him from USENET back in the day, in philosophy newsgroups.
I’ve previously written that what I have liked about Trump being in this presidential race is his general iconoclasm…not in a nihilistic sense, but rather directed towards the entrenched elites who deliver failure upon failure, on both sides. I think Bidinotto is spot on here and delves a lot deeper than I have. I particularly like how he analyzes this as more about individual pride, self-esteem and worth than collective nationalism (we’ve seen that before).
Perhaps the bright spot is that If America’s cultural roots in revolution on behalf of individuals rather than collectives is strong enough to inoculate it from taking this to extreme nationalism, then perhaps it’s also strong enough to overcome a failed Trump presidency.
