My Fear: The Cannibalizing of Libertarians and Progressives by Fanatics Due to Government Ineptitude

Some excellent commentary.

If you don’t call out the fringe left with the same fervor that you do the fringe right, they will both grow rapidly and begin cannibalizing those they most easily absorb.

  1. I’d argue there isn’t any moral or cultural center from which to prevent this fissioning to the poles. Civic nationalism was the glue that held things together, but now that the “moderate centrist,” position is that statues should be torn down and whites made to become second class minorities, where do you establish a middle-ground?

    • What seems to me to be the case is that the real Red/Blue divide reflects a rivalry between different factions of the elite, i.e. the traditional WASPish plutocracy, and the rising upper middle class representing the left-wing of capitalism, the “newly rich,” urban cosmopolitan professionals, public sector bureaucrats, upwardly mobile minorities, etc. On the ground level the center still holds:

      Both of the two major factions of the elite are concentration in their respective parties, and continue to reach out to the far fringes on the ground in order to build constituencies for themselves. So what we need at this point is a radical/revolutionary center that is 100% anti-state/ruling class/power elite, but rejects the extremes of left and right. The emergence of a movement of this kind would have the effect of marginalizing extremists while attacking the system from the middle.

      I like Adam Kokesh’s idea of running for president on a platform of abolishing the federal government: But I don’t know how serious would be or how seriously anyone would take it. Something like that might be an effective means of building anarchism/libertarianism. But we probably need something a little more generic in the shorter term.

  2. I’d argue the elites are not divided, but in-fact were unified more by Trump than they have been in decades. The Anglo-Jewish plutocrats is transparently hostile to anything outside the general program I described before. Everyone from C-level Fortune 500 executives to adjunct professors in Marxist studies believe in the virtue of this initiative, as do the overwhelming majority of the civil servants who’ve implemented it thus far.
