Looking at the electoral map, it appeared to be a sea of blood. And perhaps this is a visceral metaphor for the anger rising up in the nostrils of the great unwashed. I certainly did not want Trump, and my vote for him was for the lesser of two evils. But as a wise philosopher once said, there is a cumulative wisdom in the common man who articulates the popular rage. Perhaps we don’t need the prim and polished politico with the mouth that butter would not melt in. Who knows how things will shake out? First Brexit, and now this. The world is battling a managerial elite that would turn us into puny subjects of a homogenous super state. If this reinvigorates our taste for liberty, then it will have been a revolution of inestimable value.
If we have learned anything from this, it is that the elites who man the towers of media have interests that diverge from our own. With luck, they will decline and never achieve the power they once had over the American mind. A healthy suspicion of their daily vomit is not an exercise in paranoia, but of manly prudence and common sense. In effect, their bleating is the cacophony of dwarves. Parse their spirit plainly, or better yet, shut the entire stench out of your lives and learn to think again as those who cherish liberty…..as watchers on the wall.
