Religion is about ideas - even if it’s ideas about the spiritual.
This was a purely materialistic, identity based, color-or-lady-parts election.
It’s not time for intra-finger-pointing from anyone. It’s time to recognize that demographics and identity are King in the US, as they are in the rest of the West. That was inevitable, if early in arriving, and is only going to grow.
This incarnation of liberty is over. That’s not a sad thing ... it’s what happens. The question is what’s next.
Here's one possibility from John Derbyshire. Long, but worth the read.
As I have been saying, there is no unity among white Americans. The old splits of education, class, sex, religion, city-country, and of course North-South still divide whites, and that is the basis of most of our politics. The Republican Party is white, sure enough, but whites aren't Republican.
This will presumably be less and less the case as whites head for minority status. At some point the fact of impending minority status will sink in, and whites will begin to sink their differences and circle the wagons. At some point the Lee Kuan Yew principle will take over. I've quoted it before, and I'll quote it again, because it's very quotable in this context. Quote from Lee Kuan Yew, who was Prime Minister of Singapore for thirty years, and the power behind the curtain for a further twenty in that very successful city-state, quote:
'In multiracial societies, you don't vote in accordance with your economic interests and social interests, you vote in accordance with race and religion.'
