The other thing here I should point out is obvious, but by design, a lot of people forget.
Libs use this and any number of concurent events to keep people hopping rapid fire from one emotion to the next...so they never have time to stop and think about anything very long. AKA, never let a crisis go to waste.
That’s what that phrase really means. It’s not one big thing, it’s a bunch of little/not so little ones in rapid succession. If you are the opposition, you are always on defense hopping from one fire to another trying to keep up with what crisis is happening this news cycle.
Fix your minds on the root of all of these myrad issues. Because they are the same one. And it does not matter if it’s a lib or a Republican spouting lib policies and calling himself a conservative.
The following link is to an old FR thread, about an even older conservative booklet called “The Revolution Was”, written in 1938 about FDR and the New Deal. FDR used the theory of crisis very well. And it is ALL happening again - amazingly, chillingly so. Only worse.
...It took off from a revolutionary base. The design was European. Regarded from the point of view of revolutionary technic it made perfect sense. Its meaning was revolutionary and it had no other. For what it meant to do it was from the beginning consistent in principle, resourceful, intelligent, masterly in workmanship, and it made not one mistake......
Having passed this crisis, the New Deal went on from one problem to another, taking them in the proper order, according to revolutionary technic; and if the handling of one was inconsistent with the handling of another, even to the point of nullity, that was blunder in reverse.
The effect was to keep people excited about one thing at a time, and divided, while steadily through all the uproar of outrage and confusion a certain end, held constantly in view, was pursued by main intention.
The end held constantly in view was power.
