I agree with those who say that culture trumps politics
We now have two separate worlds in America, the Trump populist-nationalists, and the Obama global liberal-socialists. Now what? Civil war?
I agree with those who have said that culture trumps politics. Andrew Breitbart, a populist-nationalist, said, "Politics is downstream from culture...The left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media." (Outside in) And Breitbart was at war to gain control of the America narrative.......The academic world is the other very nasty cultural control center which needs to be countered if we are ever to save America.
The small media, the world-wide internet, cell phones, etc. had much to do with the Trump narrative reaching the people and winning the presidency, and that needs to continue and grow. But we are seeing the bad guys gaining control of the internet.
Of course it won't be easy. The Big Media and the globalists have been tearing apart president Trump, or almost magically changing him into a neoconservative (the really bad guys). And they are doing it by controlling the media narrative...
Any real savior of the West needs to have brains and not just chutzpah. We better hope that our little old democratic republic is up to the task. And it will need a media and an academic world that is with them, not against them, for any long-term success.
