WHY THE WHOLE THING LOOKS DIFFERENT TO ME | 2005-06-25
Everybody else sees Political Correctness as a giant, unbelievably powerful monolith. Which is exactly how the USSR looked in 1982.
I repeat, in 1982, anyone who said the USSR was about to fall would have been laughed out of the room.
You see a huge, totally dominant system built on unimaginable amounts of money and power.
Above all, you see Evil Geniuses at work backing that system with their lives and with genius and subtlety and endless ruthlessness.
Like Yeltsin, who was from the Russian version of Pontiac, South Carolina, I see a bunch of wimps and ignoramuses like the Soviet bureaucrats. Yeltsin saw a Potemkin Empire in Russia.
You are too much a product of our system to be able to see it as it is.
All those grim-faced Sovietologists were complete morons. They looked at the USSR as a power forever. Respectable conservatives perform the same service for our own Idiocracy.
Push it hard and it will fall to pieces. The universities are a wonderful place to start. Tens of millions of young people are paying off back-breaking student loans, and every one of them knows he was cheated.
Tens of millions of young people are trying to start families, and each child will require the payment of college costs that are skyrocketing and show no sign that there will be any limit to them when their children reach college age.
Everybody knows that. Only I SAY that.
Our Idiocracy is ready to fall.
and let's push it over the edge.
