Having said this, there are some delicate signs that the leftist/liberal elite is losing control. Whether this is intentional or not is something I do not know and cannot comment on, but one thing is clear - planned or accidental, the powers that be are slowly losing their grip. At first glance the very idea if it seems ludicrous - somehow beyond belief. After all, for generations left-liberalism has been the only game in town. As a social, economic, political, and cultural force, it has been and continues to be a merciless juggernaut, ruthlessly crushing and destroying everything upon which it sets it sights. Despite its unquestionable success, faint clues that the juggernaut may be slowing are beginning to emerge. Slight hairline cracks have appeared and are rippling over its hull. A faint question mark is starting to materialize above it, barely visible to the naked eye, but there all the same, like some spectral prenumbra or ghostly mirage. Could this mark the beginning of the end?
The entire left/liberal establishment operates very much like a team of plate spinners happily twirling their ceramic disks perched atop thin wooden rods for the amusement and amazement of all. When it comes to spinning, no one is better than the left. They have the uncanny ability to keep dozens of plates balanced and moving and on the odd occasion that they forget about a plate and it crashes to the floor, they are quick to distract their audience by raising and spinning two or three other plates in place of the broken one which is quickly forgotten by the spectators who are lulled back into their warm, comfortable trance. They are excellent spinners, the left, and they are well aware of their excellence, but this self-knowledge has led them to hubris. With every passing year, they raised more and more plates smug in the belief that they would keep them all spinning no matter what.
However, there are signs that perhaps, just perhaps, the left have overshot themselves. There are simply too many plates and no matter how quickly they dash back and forth between the rods, they are slow to reach them all in time to keep the momentum going. Many plates are beginning to wobble, tugged out of the charm of their spinning by the cold demands of gravity. More and more spins are deteriorating into fits of elliptical teetering. At the very end of the line of rods, two or three plates look as if they will crash to the floor. Several dozen more seemingly beg to follow. The left seem panicky. Whether their panic is sincere or planned is difficult to know, but one thing looks certain - the left are either losing or surrendering control.
That most, if not all, of the plates will fall and explode on the floor seems inevitable. The only question that remains is what will happen afterwards, after all the broken ceramic shards are swept up and the rods taken down. Will there be a chance for a sincere renewal? A return to reality. A resurrection of Goodness, Truth, and Beauty? Or will the left merely return to the ring with an even more entrancing and even more horrendous circus act?
