    That is good, Will. It speaks to your integrity that you link to a story so critical of Calvinist Cromwell’s destruction of Catholic and Anglican Churches. Yes, that’s Cancel Culture, too.

    “A defeated people may still fight, but they must not fight as though the war had not been lost. They must adopt different tactics. They must adopt a different vision for themselves. They must understand that those who rule them are their conquerors and their enemies. And that their rulers do not rule only from political offices.”

    That’s a great point. And Cromwell reminds us of the one people who have done this, historically: The Irish. Despite mostly speaking their conquerors’ tongue, they preserved their religion and culture, until GloboHomo overthrew it. The Irish literally threw away one of the greatest victories in world history. I guess it’s true: God really did create whiskey to keep the Irish from ruling the world.

    “Quiet, anonymous, and often complicitous, lawbreaking and disobedience may well be the historically preferred mode of political action for peasant and subaltern classes, for whom open defiance is too dangerous… One need not have an actual conspiracy to achieve the practical effects of a conspiracy. More regimes have been brought, piecemeal, to their knees by what was once called “Irish Democracy”—the silent, dogged resistance, withdrawal, and truculence of millions of ordinary people—than by revolutionary vanguards or rioting mobs.” -James Scott
