Rep. Alexandria O’Crazy-O Cortez was booed and cursed the other night at a “town hall” held in her own Congressional district in New York City (

We need to think some more about manufactured consent of the governed–as opposed to real consent, the principle upon which our Constitution is based.

Why would the Far Left Democrat Congresswoman expect to walk into any public place and be applauded? Does she believe the media when they tell her what a smash she is? Does she believe that the daft, irresponsible, and wicked public policies she stands for–non-existent borders, insane government spending on programs that no normal people support, and a blank check for Ukraine’s war effort–have any but minimal public support? Did she expect those people in Queens, NY, to stand up and cheer?

The prevailing politics seems to be: 1) Identify a cause or an interest that appeals only to a miniscule number of people, like “transgender”; 2) throw the whole weight of the Democrat Party behind it; 3) Use the nooze media to round up corporate and academic support, and to attack, viciously, anyone who dissents; 4) use Big Tech to silence objectors, and the FBI to spy on them; 5) and having done all that, present the illusion of consent: everybody in America except for a mere handful of malcontents is ready to swan-dive into the tar pit with you.

Just avoid places where you are likely to encounter real people.

‘Big Ape Politics’ (2019)

Everything you need to know about fallen-world politics, you can learn from reading Tarzan books.

Big Ape Politics

Go ahead, I dare you–look at Congress, look at the appointed posts, and tell me it’s not about getting rich and sassy at the public’s expense. We are fallen–but do we really have to fall this far?

Who gets to run the show? Who gets the biggest percs? Whom does everybody else have to make like they respect?

The biggest ape, of course. Until a bigger, strong ape replaces him.

Edgar Rice Burroughs, you were a top-flight political scientist… and didn’t even know it.

As a student of political science, I spent much time reading various theories of politics. None of the ones in the textbooks were anywhere near as convincing as what I found in Tarzan novels.

It came to me in a flash. I was reading about Peter the Great’s visit to London, and what a shambles he and his entourage made of the lovely house which had been provided for him. Did these men not know what a stairway was for? Did they not know not to ride their horses on the parquet flooring? They couldn’t have made a bigger mess if they’d been a tribe of apes…


In Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan stories, the apes are always competing with one another, often violently, to see who gets the most food, the most matings, the best place to sleep, and so on. And the ape who gets the most of everything, the biggest and the strongest and the meanest ape, gets to be king. Until a younger, stronger ape comes along and takes it away from him.

Holy cow! Politics!

It really is about who gets to have the most of everything–the most power, the most prestige, the biggest heap of other people’s money… It wasn’t even Burroughs who discovered this. We find it right there in the Bible, in 1 Samuel 8:10-18, in which Samuel warned the people of Israel exactly what would happen to them if they made good their resolve to have a king.

God knows we have a terrible penchant for finding big apes to rule over us. In Deuteronomy 17:14-20, God warns Israel, through Moses, that if they simply must have a king, they ought to have the kind of king God recommends–a king whose duties will include writing out God’s law, longhand, word for word, every day; no foreigner, but a true Israelite; and a king who will not use his position to collect loads of wealth or a vast herd of wives.

Most of the kings they got were just big apes.

God’s guidance, and faithfulness to His word, makes us real men and women: not apes with car keys.
