We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"The third and final reason is that the left is joyless."
Actually, that's the main reason. Everybody feels so happy and contented on Christmas Day. It feels like a truce has been declared, and for twenty four hours, everybody is allowed to bask in the glow of goodwill toward mankind. It's a great feeling. But that feeling is embarrassing to the government. Some people ask why America doesn't feel like that everyday. People don't feel like that everyday because there is an enormous amount of political pressure, and propaganda which causes them to be unhappy. People can't share a common experience, when so many of them are aliens.
Gaslighting is the most obvious example of how the government tries to destroy the self-respect of white people. Wikipedia - "Gaslighting is a form of psychological manipulation in which a person seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or in members of a targeted group, making them question their own memory, perception, and sanity. Using denial, misdirection, contradiction, and lying, gaslighting involves attempts to destabilize the victim and delegitimize the victim's beliefs."
Look at this quote, by a black woman: The United States is expected to be majority nonwhite within a generation. What do you say to white Americans who are uncomfortable with the idea of becoming a racial minority, even if you don’t share their concerns? Senator Klobuchar: "I say this is America. You’re looking at it. And we are not going to be able to succeed in the world if we do not invite everyone to be part of our economy." In other words, if America remains white, it will fail. You don't want America to fail, do you? So stop being white. And stop expecting to be happy.
