I cannot, in good moral conscience, vote for Kamala Harris (nor can I believe that an old, worn-out, life-long-lame-duck politician like Biden is anything but a place holder) because of her dedication to placing divisive, totalitarian Leftist identity politics over and above the sovereignty of the individual—the main component of Classical Liberalism and Modern Conservatism responsible for the creation of our, not perfect, but ultra-prosperous Western Societies, which have, in the blink of an eye over the course of human evolution, provided more equality of opportunity for more people than ever before. And the best is yet to come.
It’s pathetically ignorant to take something as complex as the evolution of humanity and stuff it into a few simple axioms like: “the patriarchy,” “racism,” and “white privilege,” and then claim that this is the way the world always is, was, and forever will be—unless we wipe out everything that has brought us this far and restructure society around some mythical utopian dream that might happen—without any supporting empirical evidence—and then force people to believe in the perfect world to come, or else.
The paragraph above is what cancel culture is in a few nutshells; it’s what canceled most of downtown Minneapolis—and that is what totalitarianism looks like—and the history of applied Marxism is rich with such examples on a much larger scale.
The Donald is not perfect, but he advocates free speech; he hasn’t started any new wars; he brokered peace in the middle east and inspired a robust economy before the panicdemic. On top of that, it doesn’t take much research to uncover how the MSM/Bravda media frames him and then plays a fascinating game of good-ole fashioned Watergate for his opponent. But most importantly, for me, President Trump banned the poison that is Critical Race Theory and exposed it to the mainstream for the frozen-in-stone, intellectually-masturbatory, totalitarian garbage that it is.
I wish I had a better choice. In a perfect world, maybe.
Cheers to your individual sovereignty (if you so choose)!
