‘Matter of time’ before political divide turns violent

The election take-away is that America is hopelessly divided. Most substantive impasses revolve around taxes and spending priorities; most stylistic divides are between those who prefer smooth talking to forthright action. But these are simply means.

The end-game, expressed in one form or another through war and peace since the “Jacquerie,” of 1358, is between communism and capitalism. (Yes, there was communism before Marx.) You cannot have communism without the theft of other people’s property, and eventually the irreconcilability of these two ideologies must end in violence. It’s just a matter of time.

If the Democrats pander to the radical Marxists in their midst, they will hasten the inevitable. The Democrats will soon discover that mobs are useful only as long as they can be controlled, and, as we see by the mobbing of Tucker Carlson’s house last night, this anti-fa mob cannot be controlled. People like Maxine Waters, who exhorts the masses to commit violence, are too stupid to understand the lessons of history. She should have taken one of my (sane) sociology courses.
