Which begs the question. To what end? Who wins what in this politic? Seems to me everyone loses. Except whom? What is the war and what do “they” ‘win’?
I have another definition of politics. Insanity.
What happens when the powerful have total control of the powerless? When the population has nothing left to lose? Do we fear death so much that we will serve rather than fight?
It is very Alinskyite. It is an emotional bomb the challenges the very legitimacy of government. It says you have no right to rule because you are racist. Saul Alinsky wanted to undermine the legitimacy of the existing government which is predicated on Lockean principles and substitute his own version. Race is one of the best levers to accomplish this because as soon as it is invoked reason shuts down and, above all, the followers of Alinskyite, like Barack Obama, cannot thrive in a rational environment.
In fact, reason itself cannot survive in the emotionally charged racist environment.
What end, you ask?
Rule or ruin. Or, more precisely, ruin to rule.
