What Led America To This Breaking Point? Reply

Contra Krystal, I don’t consider the current “breaking point” to be “horrible.” I grew up in the United States when creeps like Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan could get reelected with 49 of 50 states. That doesn’t mean I like Trump or Biden any more than Nixon or Reagan. In fact, both of them could have easily been Nixon Republicans in the 70s (and probably were in everything but name). But what I love is the fragmentation that is taking place and the parallel delegitimization of the state.
