Leave The Failed Ideas Behind

It seems the latest trend we see, now that we’ve hit hard times, is for the city folks to flee plague and leaders malign. They run to the sticks or suburbs, it looks like they won’t leave, and hopefully they will have learned to change their failed beliefs. The idea that they once cheerled led us to this collapse,’ the leftist though the experts bred corrupted young minds fast. The burning and the rioting, the obsession with skin, all the ritual self-hating inculcated within. This all came from the failed notions implanted in their brains, virtue signaling in motion drives half the world insane. That violence is excusable if done for leftist cause, the soft on crime is laudable, we don’t need cops and laws. That business is the real bad guy, so burn them, they’re ‘insured,’ it’s okay if some people die for what ‘victims’ endured. The providing law and order is not really your job, that you can throw aside voters, makes excuses for mobs. That everyone who disagrees is a fascist to hurt, and since you’re ‘right’ with history, their pain is much 'deserved.' That some folk must ‘apologize’ for things they never did, that it’s fine to propagandize in school to people’s kids. That no one should every defend their life with lethal force, we should rely on the trained men, then you say, “Police—no more!” You voted for all these things, yet now you act confused, you never thought it would bring destruction down on you. Instead of fixing it, you ran, safety you hope to find, it’s your beliefs that left you damned, leave the failed ideas behind.
