The Atlantic has fallen a long way indeed.

The country as a whole isn't. The woke brigade has broken liberals and convinced them they're wicked, debased sinners who don't deserve civil rights. They can only find salvation by opening their hearts to BLM.

Yep.

I figure that'll work for a while until the disengaged moderates realize this means burning down their nice, comfortable American life.

That's the hope, anyhow.

Without clear supermajorities in both the House and the Senate, Republicans are too spineless to do anything. There are too many broken liberals voting the will of their progressive owners for that to ever happen.

We're going to have another contentious election. The majority of liberals are going to vote Democrat in droves, because they're ashamed they might be racist if they allow a Democrat to lose. Conservatives and some disaffected liberals are going to vote for Republicans because they think that's the only other option. Absolutely no one will vote third party. Donald Trump will win an electoral college victory, but lose the popular vote to Joe Biden. Both parties will declare victory, and the radical left will show up for another wave of riots.

Left-wing mobs control all of the major cities, but they have no control outside of them. We're likely to see a bloodbath in DC, when the mob tries to storm the White House and paint it black after the election. This will simultaneously galvanize support for BLM in urban centers, as all white people are clearly racist, while galvanizing opposition to BLM in rural areas. You will probably see a group try and protest white nationalism in rural America only to get destroyed. Suburban areas in the midwest will become something akin to the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea. White people entering the cities will have to get on their knees and apologize for racism. Non-whites leaving the cities will have to wear MAGA hats. We'll go through three more presidential terms (Trump/Biden, then two more to follow them) where each section of the country has a separate president before the country breaks apart.

The LA-Seattle urban chain will form its own sovereign nation, the NYC-DC urban chain will form another (and probably stretch out to Chicago), and the flyover states will form a third centered around Texas, who will kick out their progressives and send them back to California.

And then the eugenics program will produce Judge Dredd.

I'm just waiting for Fall; or, Dodge in Hell's throwaway opening to the second act to happen. The one where Sophia and her college friends are driving through Iowa.

I'm listening to the internal Get Woke (not the official name) briefing and just thinking to myself "don't forget the second part of Get Woke ... go broke".

Them: "We may need to be unconformatable talking about racism."
Me: "Like when I point out that BLM is communistical, or that the rate of fatalities per encounter with police is lower with blacks than with whites and that the real problem is therefore frequency of contact and not the police themselves?" Except I can't say that because that isn't the type of uncomfortability they want.

The struggle sessions are real right now. IMO the best outcome will be the balkanization of the US. We can't agree on first principles at this point and I think the united part o the USA is over-stated anyway.

Unfortunately, those woke people have gotten control of the tech and media and education sectors, so they have the mouthpiece.

I have to admit, five or six years ago Coro got me interested in programming and now im halfway through my Masters in CS and I'm damn glad, because tech right now is apparently dominated by rank leftists. Its good to have an understanding of what these people actually control.

I both sympathize and empathize. Literally every military EO and sexual harassment/assault training is like this, where im thinking to myself "you mean like when the black female battalion commander invariably lets black troops off the hook at Article 15 and gets away with it because the Brigade Commander and the 2-star know she has her own EO ready to go if she's ever called on her blatant misconduct?"

Why some people hate the police.
