Step back from the fray, if you will, and try to view the political landscape through a different lens.
It will take some doing, but once you do this you will see the point I'm trying to make and in doing so will allow yourself a bit of respite and a happier life.
If you think about it, the primary or "main" political debates of our time could be summarized as such:
The redistribution of wealth
The individual vs the commune
Facts over feelings
Race/Diversity/Sex over character and accomplishment
Federal Reserve monetary policy of increasing the money supply
I'm sure there are more, but I just have one question about the above-mentioned debates:
Why in the Patron Saint's Name of Frick are we even debating these things?
I'm serious, WHY are these even debates? Why are they up for discussion? Any intellectually honest individual, let alone a commonsensical 8 year old can resolve them and knows the adult, real world answer to them. But there they are, every day at the forefront of political debate.
The reason I point this out is because if THESE are the major and unresolved political debates of our time, it only shows you just how far to insanity society has moved and just how doomed we really are.
For example, take global warming.
Has it been proven? No, not by a long shot. There's just as much counter evidence as there is evidence that it there is global warming, that it's caused by humans, and that it will have serious consequences. To the slightly experinced and adult mind, you can see it for what it is (a scam), but for people on the left, it is a veritable religion. The irony, of course, is that the left will ridicule and mock people for believing in a religion, but (because global warming serves their political aims as well as provides them a convenient way to self-abscribe worth) they will never forfeit it. This forces us adults on the right to come down to their level and debate something as amorphous, intangible and irrelevant as a religion.
Another example, the redistribution of wealth.
The finances and economics of the country are such that people really expect and feel entitled to a life paid for by other people. The CHILDISHLY SIMPLE concept that everybody needs to be self-supporting and independent, otherwise society collapses, is lost on a majority of "adult" leftists. The fact the merits of independence and not being dependent on others is even being debated, again, shows just how desperate, pathetic and sad the situation has become.
And federal reserve monetary policy? OH, THIS TIME IT'S DIFFERENT???? Right, because flooding the economy with currency JUST THIS ONE MORE TIME will work.
Hell, Minnesota voted AGAINST requiring ID to vote, earning it the all-time greatest "WTF???"
Ergo, I ask the question - why even debate?
Along the lines of enjoying the decline, how precisely do you fight or argue such stupidity, childishness, naivete and brainwashing? If I can't convince a woman that she is different than a man both physically, mentally, and sexually,
and that it is in her best interests to acknowledge and adhere to these facts
AND I run the risk (shoot, guarantee) of being accused of sexism
then why even bother? They are so childish, so intellectually dishonest, so hopeless and so brainwashed, you are merely wasting your breath, achieving nothing, and alienating political classes who will do you no good if you dare to do so.
The larger point I'm trying to make is that if our debates have degraded to this level of stupidity and idiocy, it proves there is a critical mass of massively stupid and ignorant people and there is no point in trying to debate them. Additionally, there is no point in getting worked up about the dismal outcomes of elections as it is Idiocracy electing its own demise. It is just all the more reason to not waste what precious life you have arguing with leftists, worrying about the future, and proof you should be out enjoying the decline instead.
