“…we may find ourselves in a period of post-persuasion where we need to figure out how to unyoke ourselves politically rather than convince the rest of America…”-Jeff Deist

Murray Rothbard said: The Democrats engineer the great leaps forward, and the Republicans consolidate the gains. You know, you had the end of Bush during the ’08 crash, and then Obama came in. You had Bush during 9/11, and now you’ve got Trump. So big entitlement great leaps forward are now happening under Republicans

But these last couple of crises have been with a Republican president.  So, we have to come out of this understanding that people are going to become inured to the seriousness of this, that they are going to become more and more accepting of government giving them money, of government bailing things out, of government nationalizing industries, and government making decisions about ostensibly client resources, and basically the idea of a bank controlled economy is becoming more and more palatable to millions of Americans. And this virus ain’t helpin’.

So, I think what we have to understand is we may find ourselves in a period of postpersuasion where we need to figure out how to unyoke ourselves politically rather than convince the rest of America.”
