Angelo Codevilla has an article that analyzes Trump’s invaluable action as a catalyst but also the failures of his administration to drain the swamp. It’s a good analysis of the 2016 election and its consequences. Codevilla claims that Trump’s awakening of the country against the Elites is what triggered them to drop the mask and tighten the oligarchic controls that they already possessed.
He then talks about the failed chances to rein in the Deep State and goes on to discuss what future leaders must do to restore our freedom. Even if you do not agree with every interpretation of the events or conclusion it is a very thought provoking read.
This article feeds into my own process of trying to figure out how we move forward from the awful place we currently find ourselves in. If there is to be any hope of pushing back against the forces that are actively working to destroy our society competent leaders will have to step forward with workable plans and a gigantic dose of audacity.
