Between the perverse passivity with which we have all capitulated to the lockdowns, the macabre willingness to look the other way at violence in the black community in America, the degenerate worship of celebrity, the vicious hatred that has infected virtually everyone in the west toward everything true, and good, and beautiful in our cultural heritage, and the willingness we all seem to harbor now for our own self-destruction, it has become an extreme effort to maintain any sense of optimism in the aspirational project of the founding fathers and their intellectual mentors of the prior generation.
I think, if John Locke or Thomas Jefferson were to see what America looked like this week, they would weep for humanity, and beg to know why the Enlightenment failed.
Went to an illegal backyard dinner last night. Illegal fun (including tequila) was had by consenting adults. Please don’t report us.
No live show today as I wanted to give my guys a four day weekend with MLK Day on Monday.
Anyone got good weekend plans?
