For those of us who still believe in and embrace the ideas of our founding, for those who believe that the individual and their liberty are of paramount importance and prime value, for those of us who believe that free market capitalism is the most moral and just system for organizing economic activity, we need to have an epiphany. We need to awaken to the reality that we are not a majority. We are not a vocal minority with the same rights as the majority. We are now dissidents. We do not have the same voice as our ever-strengthening oppressors, and we do not have the same rights that they enjoy.
Phi Beta Iota: We believe the author to be incorrect. The “deplorables” including the populists of the left, not just of the right, are perhaps 70% of the public in the USA. We believe a rebalancing is about to occur as the obvious injustice of the current censorship regime leads to that regime's overthrow. It merits comment that most “dissident” organizations including BLM and Antifa as well as those ostensibly on the right are funded by the Deep State and controlled toward a divide & conquer strategy. Q Anon is the unifying narrative for the 70%.
