First, your arguments are in bad faith and we reject your framing. The Trump phenomena that seems to baffle people like Sam Harris was a response to decades of cordial GOP Ned Flanders types who accepted the rules you don’t play by yourself. And Finally we had someone who “punched back twice as hard.”
Second, we understand that almost universally free market principles are better than Communist ones but we also reject this false dichotomy. There is a third position that works well. Not a laissez-faire economic anarchy, but a Capitalist usually hands off approach to the market, combined with big taxes for health care and schooling. It works in the Nordic countries and in Japan. But they are small and homogenous and the average IQ is in the triple digits. That can’t work in the declining diverse US empire.
In any case, don’t try your “hurr durr I thought you loved sucking Big Business d*** and were hyper individualists?” bullsh*t. We are localists, communitarians, Paleo-Cons, or whatever you wanna’ call us. And it’s basic game theory. We’d much rather not think about this and let everyone go about their business but this only works in small homogenous societies like the ones of our Founding Fathers. It requires mutual trust and upstanding individuals. Unfortunately, we’ve been shrugging things off for so long that now every commercial makes the White Male the butt of the joke, and every movie is full of insane Woke propaganda. Because you guys black list, and we don’t. Simple as.
Time to balance things out.
The shortcut was always to just watch foreign stuff like anime. When there’s a badass female character or a Black character, you know there was no agenda. It was just a stylistic choice. But even that is being subverted because the Center & Right refuse to fight back to this obnoxiously loud minority of woke people ruining everything.
More to come…
