Sensible

Bret Stephens hits the nail on its head:

The sensible center of America — that is, the people who choose presidents in this country — wants to see Donald Trump lose next year, but not if it means empowering the junior totalitarians of the left.

That’s exactly where I am. As we have seen during the past two years, Trump isn’t that scary and isn’t doing much of anything, good or bad, a quality he shares with the new Democrat Congress.

I can easily imagine worse things. A candidate favored by the pouty leftist Twitteroids would be worse. Morally superior religious fanatics are very scary. Especially when the god they worship is their all-important self.

  1. It’s false that he isn’t doing anything bad — what’s happening to the environment is devastating, and that is for starters.

  2. “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”
