It turns out we're not the only ones who have soured on the idea of democracy. Nobody really likes it, unless they are getting what they want. The Left has been hailing the praises of this dysgenic mess for as long as I can remember, because, as George Carlin put it “Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.”
For the Left, higher voter turnout is nearly synonymous with success, because the more people voting, the lower the intelligence of the collective outcome. Their ideas are hostile to the lives of smart and decent people, so they rely on stupidity and wickedness to get by.
For them, this has worked out pretty well for the most part. So well in fact, that they were able to sneak in millions more extraordinarily low quality people while they were in power, just in case the idiots who elected them ever got wise to the scheme.
But then something changed. Suddenly, it wasn't good enough to call people racists and promise free stuff. In fact, a man who was called racist perhaps more than anyone else in history, became President of the United States, and if you thought that was bad, he's also a billionaire.
From there, things only got worse. Trump's election didn't just make American liberals wet the bed, it inspired a wave of Nationalist sentiment all the way over in Europe as well. Britain voted to leave the European Union, and when the results of their referendum went unheeded, they formed a Brexit Party, and shocked the world with their electoral success recently to the European Parliament.
It wasn't limited to Britain, either. France, Italy, and Poland all had strong showings for the Right as well. German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned of "dark forces" rising throughout Europe.
“These populist, nationalists, stupid nationalists, they are in love with their own countries and they don’t like the others,” outgoing President of the European Union Commission Jean-Claude Juncker told CNN in his Brussels office.
Imagine that? Citizens loving their own countries? Dark forces, indeed.
Could you imagine what would happen to these monsters if most people understood the contempt their rulers have for them? That's not going to happen of course, but it's still fun to think about.
On the bright side, their effort to strike back might just be what ends them.
Stateside, Republican legislatures in several states have passed sweeping restrictions on abortion. I suppose they are sick of hearing about thier "aging populations" being the excuse for replacement level immigration, and are interested in fixing government policy instead of dying as the Left would surely prefer.
In Missouri the last remaining abortion clinic says it expects to be shut down this week, effectively ending legal abortion in the state. In a statement Tuesday, Planned Parenthood said Missouri's health department is "refusing to renew" its annual license to provide abortion in the state. If the license is not renewed by May 31, Missouri would become the first state without a functioning abortion clinic since 1973 when Roe v. Wade was decided. Planned Parenthood, predictably, filed a lawsuit requesting a restraining order against the state, hoping to restore the license and avoid service disruption. A circuit court judge will hear arguments today.
In Georgia, CNBC reported the state’s up to 30% tax credits attracted more than 450 film and television projects last fiscal year, driving more than $4.5 billion in wages and having an economic impact of greater than $9.5 billion. Projects included Disney’s “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Infinity War,” AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and Netflix’s “Ozark.” Netflix has also shot shows including “Queer Eye” and “The Haunting of Hill House” in Georgia in recent years.
Now one of those companies, Netflix, says they will be "rethinking" their investment in the state due to the state’s passage of an abortion law forbidding termination of a pregnancy after an indication of a heartbeat.
Imagine that? A corporation giving up a 30% tax credit, just because their executives are so enamored with abortion. Checkmate libertarians! Where is your precious profit motive now?
I'd say it's a worthwhile trade off. Fine, Netflix! Fine, Hollywood! Fine, Mr. Movieburg! You keep your cheap smut entertainment, we'll keep our babies and our countries.
Seeking revenge, states under Leftist control have expanded abortion access. Talk about cutting off one's nose to spite their face. You're mad at us, so you kill your own babies? Why didn't we think of this sooner? Perhaps we should pass more restrictive suicide laws next, and then our rivals will all go the way of Heaven's Gate. "You really want to get back at Trump? Here's some phenobarbital mixed with apple sauce! You can wash it down with some tastey Russian vodka! Your comet to heaven awaits you on the other side of the light!"
Ah yes, we stupid Nationalists, in love with our countries, our babies, and our heartbeats. If only we had the wisdom of our Left wing betters, who love truly valuable things like poverty, distractions, and infanticide.
It's good to have hope. I don't, on most days. On some however, we get these little reminders that our rivals cannot win, in any real sense. They can destroy the things we value, to be sure. They might just bring us all to the brink of extinction if they are not stopped, perhaps beyond the brink, but when one sets their entire existence in root and branch opposition ot the human condition and reality itself, success becomes the antithesis of their aims.
They are doomed to destroy themselves. The only question now is, will we let them take us with them?
