This is what Election 2020 comes down to, as many others lhave observed at length. Here I excerpt a longer article that makes the same point briefly. It's not really original, but it is a reminder that we all need. It's also a reminder that America is a national community--not the "idea" or "proposition" that as Neocons would have it. Additionally, in his concluding paragraph the author neatly encapsulates the Establishment's vision of American, the vision of Biden Inc.: A state in which the new aristocracy wields power over a disenfranchised and impoverished populace.
‘Death to America!” is a common refrain from antifa rioters from Portland, Ore., to Kenosha, Wis. Children are in the streets calling for the country’s destruction ...
These acts of violence encapsulate five decades of neo-Marxist indoctrination in American schools, colleges and universities. The left’s “long march” through the institutions is all but complete.
Their ignorance of history is the hallmark of the current crisis.
The violence suggests that tribalism based on group identity is poised to succeed the larger national community ...
Elites, especially the professoriate, bear much of the responsibility for this state of affairs.
American free-market capitalism has been both the most destructive and the most creative framework for generating wealth and innovation. Yet historically, its destructive quality was tempered by the regnant nationalism of its people, one that ultimately superseded the idea of class.
In contrast, America’s corporate elite today, especially its financial plutocrats on the East Coast and digital aristocracy on the West Coast, seem keener to work on “global problems.”
Corporate elites have pushed a self-serving vision of a world of transnationalism unconstrained by local cultures and institutions, many of which took centuries to establish and consolidate. The new credentialed oligarchy—people simultaneously from everywhere and nowhere—feels an ever more tenuous sense of obligation to its fellow nationals.
The assault on the constitutional right of citizens to speak freely unless they affirm first the increasingly intolerant orthodoxy has been unrelenting.
As cities burn and racialists push to resegregate public spaces, the deconstruction of the American nation is coming dangerously close to completion. ... The neo-Marxist left is separating the institutions of American democracy from their national foundations. If they succeed, the U.S. will over time lose its republican culture and morph into a state in which the new aristocracy wields power over a disenfranchised and impoverished populace. The stakes are in full view for anyone to see.
