Me, In Comments

TO THIS thread at Mostly Cajun (All American).

You’re right. BUT… It didn’t happen by accident. It was done to us deliberately, with malice aforethought.

This might seem tangential, but it’s not. From a darker road, my wife was relating the details of a local news story. A teenage girl was abducted, raped, and murdered. The Person of Interest was seen leaving the woods where her body was later found. He was “on the street” as they say, having been paroled from multiple prior offenses of both violent and sexual natures.

She asked me, with true despair in her voice (and bear in mind she’s a former liberal), “How does this kind of thing happen?”

“You’re not going to like my answer,” I said. “One hundred years of progressive politics.”

And that’s the truth. When Hillary Clinton shrills that the Right wants to roll back 100 years of “progress” (scorn quotes), the proper response is, “Damned right, Skippy! Damned right.”

There lies the ultimate perpetrator in the crime you detail: the hubristic notion that Man can (or should) direct his own evolution, that Man (or men) CAN know enough about reality and the state of events to direct it with any reasonable expectation of sailing clear of the rocky reefs of FAIL.
