In the ongoing metamorphoses of the Thing that Used to be Conservatism into a social movement that manages to get almost everything wrong, here is one of its Shapers of “Thought” hoping against hope that America would just grab the One Ring, and transform itself into a mass-murdering Communist despotism (and the one with more blood on its hands than any other Commie regime) in order to keep itself safe. This is why I am utterly alienated from the bizarre intellectual detritus that is all that is left of conservatism.Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we will trust in the Name of the Lord our God.
