Progressives are dinosaurs.

In this new Afterburner video, Bill Whittle points out, in his always reasoned and insightful way, that the age of centralized control -- the age of tyrants -- is finally drawing to a close. He likens them to dinosaurs. And we all know what happened to them.

I agree with his analysis. Life is simply moving too fast, for far too many people, for the governments of this world to continue to move like ponderous, lumbering giants and NOT get swept away as the dinosaurs did.

Extinction can be a good thing.


But extinction never comes without great pain, tragedy, and death.  When cataclysmic change happens, either in nature's environment or in man's, what can not or will not change is destroyed.

So let's not be surprised when they put up a fight.

Just saying.

  1. I think, and hope, that this is right. Wouldn't be too surprised if that becomes obvious within the next couple of years. The trick is going to be avoiding having the beast fall on you and the lashing tail as it enters its death throes.

    1. Yes, surviving the fallout will be the biggest challenge. Of course, with my big mouth, if there is a purge before the final death throes, I'll be GOOOOONE.

      I'm an obvious danger to the state.

      HAHAHA! (Not funny....)

  3. I wish, but 5000 years of history suggest otherwise.

    1. I would agree with you, Steve D., except for one thing. While history repeats itself, it never does so exactly the same way. Can't put your foot back in the same river kind of thing. PEOPLE never change, but circumstances do. Perhaps, as Bill was making the point, technology has changed the game enough that circumstances MUST change. As he points out, it has in the past, a couple of times when huge changes in our knowledge lead to drastic changes in civilization.

      It's a more optimistic theory than "we're all gonna die" which was what I was leaning towards until I heard Bill.
