The Ridiculous Fantasy of a US National Divorce

The Ridiculous Fantasy of a US National Divorce. By Benjamin Braddock.

The solution is not some national divorce or civil war. The solution is for the Right to stop being rank amateurs when it comes to politics and governance.

Purge the grifters and incompetents. Bring back the old sharks and have them train a new generation in the art of election warfare.

And once in power, actually use that power to purge or destroy the institutions responsible for brainwashing so many of our countrymen.

The Right has to articulate and act on a positive vision for America and break out of this learned helplessness that we find ourselves in as we point and object while the other side steadily achieves their goals. We have to learn from the Left in order to defeat it.

That doesn’t mean copying their framing, narrative, or tactics, but understanding their basic will to power and strategy and adapting our approach to effectively combat it.

America lost Vietnam in large part due to our failure to appreciate the Maoist doctrine of political warfare. We were not fighting the same war the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese were fighting. We see echoes of that playbook again, but this time in our own country.

Truth and history is on your side, so don’t let them trick you out of your birthright.
