In his article, “Yes, This is a Revolution,” Abe Greenwald of Commentary Magazine provides the best description I’ve read of our present moment. “The battle for the survival of the United States of America is upon us,” Greenwald writes, and he lays out a compelling argument for why that is so. According to Greenwald, this battle is a revolution in the manner of the French, Bolshevik, and Chinese Cultural Revolutions, the goal of which is the complete “transformation of popular ideas and beliefs and, most important, of a country’s national character.”
I’ve been wanting to write about the events of the past two and a half months, but Greenwald has articulated my inchoate thoughts much better than I ever could. Take a few minutes to read Greenwald’s article. It will definitely be worth your while.
