For John, BLUF: A tale about the Democrats not getting it. Nothing to see here; just move along.
This is an interesting blog post by Ms Sarah Hoyt, a contributor at the InstaPundit. It is about publishing, but it is also about political life. Here is the end of the Blog Post:
I.e. you can push and you can market, but in the end, if the readers don’t like your product, you’re hosed.By the way, I sometimes hear about how the "low educated" gave the election to President Trump. There are two solutions to this. One is to have an educational cutoff for the right to vote, the way they did in the old South, when the Democrats ran things down there. The other solution is to learn to pitch one's arguments to all the voters, so the "low educated" don't feel as though they are being ignored, at best, or denied, at worst.
Sometimes the dogs just don’t like the food.
Look at this sad tale, and consider it is but a miniature representation of what is going on in society at large.
When a large segment of the population or the self proclaimed elite insists on ignoring reality, they are on a road to nowhere, with a really interesting tour of various historical horrors along the way.
And all we can do is build under, build around, build over, so we can take the weight when the structure falls.
Be not afraid.
