Las Vegas

As these political mass murders become increasingly commonplace, I can’t help but think we are descending down into the revolutionary rabbit hole. I think about the experience of Russians in 1917 and Germans in 1933 and I try to envision what things will look like once we extrude out the other end of this. I can’t help but be pessimistic. The possibilities seem limited to either left wing authoritarianism or right wing authoritarianism.

I’m often reminded of the Hegelian Dialectic that postulates that the collision of false thesis against false anti-thesis is designed to yield a higher truth. But whose higher truth are we being driven toward?

Or is this just a random joust between agitated political factions?

  1. Oh yeah. I could very well see this as the formation of a false dilemma to be foisted on the populace. General unrest fomented to “legitimize” more authoritarian measures.
