I’ve begun to fear that America and the rest of the West will learn absolutely nothing from the worldwide coronavirus disaster (unleashed on us by China): that people are either so committed to wicked and insane ideologies, or else just so damned stupid, that their heads might as well be made of wood.
You’d think even the most limited intellect would be able to grasp the concept that hyper-urbanization, jamming people into cities as densely as you can and packing them into mass transit every day, is just asking for another pandemic to mow them down; and you’d think even a Democrat could understand that “open borders” is a potentially suicidal policy.
But I have this creepy, crawly feeling that instead of learning anything, the West’s big shots and opinion-shapers will double down on all the absurd, asinine, and wicked errors that landed us in this mess.
They’ll give us more transgender, more gay rights, more globalism, more socialism, more tyranny, more “diversity,” more Climate Change, more Greta, more Soros–more of everything bad, everything that’s crazy, everything that’s damned. They are either that stupid, that evil, or actually cursed by God. Cursed for the things they did, and allowed to be done, in that horrible 20th century.
What can we do but pray? And speak the truth? And you can already get in trouble for doing those things. But I’m afraid we have to.
