The quiet civility of a Republican loss of the House demonstrates a strength; and weakness, within the collective “right”.
Had the Republicans maintained control of the House, I have no doubt that several people would have died, and our collective streets would wreak of protests, violence, personal and property damage, etc…
Notwithstanding our own “violent extremists” in the political “Right”, the majority of Republicans are extremely conservative in matters of the use of violence, to achieve our goals.
This is not exclusive to some Republican or Conservative named collection of people; nor is this an exclusively American phenomenon, as world history shows this to be one of mankind’s most oft-repeated cycles.
Imagine two great armies, meeting each other on a field of battle, on a raised platform of earth, 900 feet above the ground.
The average political right will allow those on the opposite side, to push us right up to the very edge of our complete demise; and that is one reason why history records thousands of cases where a generally politically peaceful people, get pushed too far, then retaliate with severe repercussions.
We’ll try, and try, and try, and try, to appease the whining minority, but they eventually reach a point of transitioning from being a people demanding special rights in the name of equal rights, to being in a majority position and pursuing revenge against their opponent.
Such “cycles” that exist and repeat through history, are some of the greatest tools mankind has for knowing what works, and what doesn’t.
The sheer lack of education learned from studying the absolute plethora of examples recorded in history, is why we often hear “those who don’t know/study the past, are doomed to repeat it”; and the most disheartening thing about this reality, is that they doom the rest of mankind, through their ignorance and lack of education on such an abundant library of information.
Again, this is another aspect of/in all that is R.A.F.O.N.
This continuous rise and fall of nations, is not something mankind can erase, but with an educated mindset of such things that do repeat so often, the masses could better themselves overall, if they’d simply heed the warning sings, before the parasites of time, arise once more, to eviscerate their host.
We’re not out in the streets rioting, looting, etc… but another viscous cycle has the pendulum of time, swinging towards a reckoning of those who mistake meekness, for weakness.
I’m not prophesying anything here; nor am I calling for a violent revolution of the collective right, against the collective left, but as a long time student of world history, the next “Cull” is coming, and it won’t be stopped.
