How hard would it be to convince the vast majority of people to stop using fossil fuels, stop driving their cars, stop flying on planes and cease doing anything deemed as a threat to the environment? How hard would it be to convince the vast majority of people to alter their behavior, their choice of books or websites, or the amount of income they keep, because of a government-decreed racial crisis? After witnessing and experiencing the events of the last year, I don’t think it would be difficult at all. Remember: Dictators are just being dictators. They enjoy power because the great majority of us choose to be humble, pitifully lazy thinkers more concerned with not offending others than with asserting our natural, inalienable rights.
