Last Days of Empire

The sportsball team from FedGov capital Washington DC has changed the nickname of their team to the “Commanders.” The new Commander mascot is a red Darth Vader replete with identity-masking face shield.

How fantastically apropos! The Commanders are now a parody of FedGov itself, right down to the ridiculousness of their caped and spandexed mascot.

I enjoy watching the empire-in-waning flail in its clown show of self-parody. It grasps and clutches to preserve and project its collapsing legitimacy with its symbols and symbolic gestures of dominance (i.e. masks, flags, pointless and obnoxious edicts, banana republic elections, senile puppet usurpers, kangaroo courts, saber rattling, etc.).

FedGov gonna censor, mandate, and lockdown with increasing brazenness, doubling down at every turn, because to admit overreach would be to admit their illegitimacy. FedGov never, ever surrenders. They only escalate.

You better watch out! The FedGov Commanders are gonna do some real commanding, now!
