ADL expands crackdown on Free Speech to banking industry.
The constitution is dead for all practical purposes. The corruption of Americas institutions are complete, laws mean nothing anymore and you must be of a chosen group to even hope for justice.
It' s over for America, lets build something better.
We have the brains and the skills to start over, it may yet still be impossible , but things can change when times get desperate.
Hopefully the people will send the Democrats and Rhinos such a defeat in 2022 that the excesses of power can start to be corrected.
Where I differ from the libertarian types is I see the shift towards authoritarianism along the lines of China's move towards fascism and social credit scores as much an indication of incompetence as corruption. There has always been plenty of corruption but when it's combined with incompetence it has a multiplier effect. People like Pelosi are not just corrupt megalomaniacs they are foolish. Same goes for Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerburg, and Twitter twit Dorsey.
Within Western and for that matter most cultures wisdom has always been associated with righteousness. Foolishness is often associated with youth. Many people who come to power have never properly matured. They also exploit immaturity. Hitler Youth, Red Guard, and 60s counter culture are examples. What we are living through can be understood from the perspective of the "Lord of the Flies". [en.m.wikipedia.org]
Maturing requires certain experiences that connect people with reality but post WWII parents have protected their children from reality. They made sure they didn't suffer the consequences of their youthful foolishness. The youth culture was reinforced by demographics in the form of the Baby Boom. It's really that culture that Jordan Peterson is addressing.
Pelosi, Bush junior, the tech lords, BLM, AntiFa, most communists, etc. are from a wisdom perspective children in adult bodies.
I'm not suggesting that a lack of wisdom or a failure to properly mature is the only problem. Power is a corrupting influence under the best of circumstances. Youth culture simply reinforces corruption and explains some of the cognitive bias and tolerance for cognitive dissonance. Children generally only know what they want not how to properly pursue it and never understand the proper role of freedom in a liberal society.
