Friday Short Cuts

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia Patriot Post
Friday, July 19, 2019
Upright: “These arguments over our past are really over the present — and especially the future. If progressives and socialists can at last convince the American public that their country was always hopelessly flawed, they can gain power to remake it based on their own interests. These elites see Americans not as unique individuals but as race, class and gender collectives, with shared grievances from the past that must be paid out in the present and the future. We’ve seen something like this fight before, in 1861 — and it didn’t end well.” —Victor Davis Hanson
