I had a brief stint as a parent a few years ago, and when children throw tantrums generally speaking you should let them. Eventually they’ll give up and tire out. That said, the kids aren’t tearing down monuments, beating the shit out of people for the color of their skin or political affiliations, burning books, and so on. Eventually an adult needs to step in and say to everyone “CUT THE SHIT” along with a good solid spanking. The establishment and their media compatriots frame the stories how they see fit for maximum effect and results, to keep a segment of the population wound up whether or not they’re being funded by George Soros and his ilk… As long as the media feeds these useful idiots, the idiots will continue to happily lap the poison up and react until their last dying breath.
It’s not so much that I’m tired of politics, or sick of arguing politics, it’s just that a large portion of the population seems to get carte blanche when it comes to reaction, they get all the attention while the rest of us are going on with our day to day lives – invisible yet conscious of the absurdity and wondering who will finally spank the shit out of these folks and restore some semblance of sanity to the public discourse.
Nobody’s mind is getting changed, some of my best friends are on the complete other side of the political spectrum from myself – yet I’ve no desire to pummel them into submission and visa versa. What is it going to take for the populace in general to get there or at least head in that direction? I say for starters shut the door and let the kids scream and cry themselves to sleep, but when the doors are jammed open by the establishment media – it’s hard to come up with a constitutionally appropriate method to reign in the tantrum.
