‘‘For decades now, our gatekeepers have been involved in an attempt to forge a people without past (or future) by metaphorically destroying or making inaccessible all the stories that don’t support the narrative they want us to believe.  News, History, Stories, even religion, they’ve tried to deprive us of all of them...’’

‘‘...Every tyranny in history has expressed its tyranny through the law.  Everything Hitler, Stalin, or Mao ever did was perfectly legal under the laws of their countries.

Union Seniority.

Tenure.

The Welfare State.

They all are a rebellion
[against] the idea that people should gain rewards to the extent that they actually contribute productively to a task.
