I will first offer a few points from the earlier post:
Codevilla: We have stepped over the threshold of a revolution. It is difficult to imagine how we might step back, and futile to speculate where it will end.
Zman: If what it takes to break the stranglehold this cult has on society is a dictator willing to toss a few judges from a helicopter, then sign me up for dictatorship.
Bionic: It would be nice to have a Gorbachev.
My reference to Gorbachev is in reference to a political leader who led through a relatively peaceful dissolution of empire; it would be nice if the US had such an individual.
I wrote and published the above on Saturday the 11th. Since then, events have transpired that bring much more clarity…and make evident the level of risk. Let's just say a Gorbachev isn't enough.
