The World They Knew is Gone - Vox Popoli

Kurt Schlichter explains why conservatives are intellectually and emotionally unequipped to deal with the realities of the world today:

Conservatives, being conservative, like to think they live in an ordered world with norms and rules and that if they rely upon the norms and rules, they will be protected. They won’t be. The genius of cultural Marxism is how it attacks those foundational premises that conservatives believe in, perverts them, and then uses them as a suppository on the befuddled cons…

And now we have the sham system of today. But dumb cons cannot comprehend that systems only function if all the cogs are working correctly. If one component is flawed – like a leftist DA pursuing a specific agenda – you stop having a system. But dumb cons do not want to accept that the justice system has been corrupted so that there is no justice system anymore. They seek the false comfort of illusory normalcy so they do not have to face the ugly reality.

Get it through your thick squish heads – there is no justice system to preserve or protect anymore.

The past is history. The fallen world is what it is. They say that you can’t go home again, and that is particularly true in a societal sense. The USA of 2023 is not the USA of 1950, or even 1980. What was once normal is no more. Those who are civilizationists, those who are Christians, those who are committed to the Good, the Beautiful, and the True, need to recognize that the USA is now the center of The Empire That Never Ended.

We are no longer the culture. We are no longer the society. We are now the counter-culture and the minority. Adjust your expectations and analyses accordingly.
