Everyone at the National Conservatism Conference in Miami could explain why the internet is damaging society—but do any of them have a plan for what comes next?
I’d say there was/is a lack of vision period. With so much low hanging fruit, why is it that Republicans cannot specify anything they will do to clean up the mess the current government has created? One must conclude that there is no plan.
I'm working on something larger with this idea but I think it's not even an issue of lack of vision--it's an inability to articulate a vision, one that is rooted in personality. A progressive personality has vision, but this vision is usually impossible to implement without causing massive suffering in the long term. A conservative personality has an amazing skill at diagnosing deep, philosophical problems but a complete inability to come up with any kind of creative or proactive solution. This is why, as silly as it sounds at this point, progressives and conservatives need to realize that they need each other unless they want to continue this race to circle to the drain.
The New Right are just manifestations of "re-involution." There's nothing they can do about Hegemony. There is nothing they can do about the domination of networks. https://raynottwoodbead.substack.com/p/beating-around-the-bush-on-the-foul?r=1kxo1w&s=w&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web
