The Burning Question
We “commoners” operate under the distinct disadvantage of not spending every waking hour planning the destruction of our political “enemies.” As discussed in a previous post we just have so many priorities and interests other than the achievement of raw power over others.
We are currently a nation splintered into contending groups who appear to have lost the ability to communicate, let alone cooperate, with each other. These groups can often (there are numerous exceptions) be be roughly divided into two primary camps.
The first is populated by people who tend to define themselves by associations and interests outside the realm of politics. To them, though politics may be an important part of life, other domains like faith, family, neighbors, sports, etc. have clear priority. Although there is no agreed name for this group, I’ll refer to them as the “commoners.” This is justified not by any presumption of lower ability or value, but rather by the fact that they see themselves as part of a common heritage and culture. Thus, they have appreciation for the nation and those through whom it was formed and maintained. If there is a central organizing principle for this camp it is opposition to the idea that the nation must be “fundamentally transformed” in order for it to be valued.
So the question burning in my mind has been:
How can we “commoners” be motivated to set aside all of our sensible other interests for long enough to repulse the proto-totalitarian Progressive project?
A Possible Answer
In this time when family gatherings, church attendance, sports and all other normal human interests have been removed, I simply ask you to focus on these elite Progressive betters revealing their actual mental prowess.
So, here’s my motivational statement to we “commoners” in this time of political peril.
Do we want history to record that we were defeated by “elites” who demonstrated this level of mental acuity?
