We are witnessing the delegitimization of the media. CNN is a symbol but the broader trend of negative views of the media is there. Even the Left has a 50-50 split on the effect of the media on society. This is a positive but the normie crowd still consumes media. We need parallel institutions. If the AltLite did not have its head up its ass, it'd see that this is their market to create: parallel news media. The next big shoe to drop is the destruction of universities.
The change and the destruction is coming. Even National Review wrote that it will soon be a target. Look at how fast republicans or the nominal right wing has soured on universities. That is a huge change, which shocks the idiotic, but is perfectly normal considering the events at universities since 2014. There have been poop swastika protest-riots, campus insanity, a heightened awareness of the uselessness of many degrees, more overt Marxism, psychotic feminists, psychotic grievance race haters entrenched as professors, debt slavery as a legit meme and also, attacks on milquetoast conservative speakers from even stepping foot on campus. The shocking result of that poll is that the Left's valuing of the university system's effect on American society did not drop a single percentage point. They love their priesthood even if it puts their kids into debt slavery.
It is not quite just a priesthood and religion thing for the Left. This other element applies to both sides but it is the good life meme. As long as the universities are the gatekeepers to entry to the good life, then they will be unbroken. What is the good life? High earning white collar work and other work (government and some medical grey collar) that requires the credential or papal blessing. Even if we remove government funding for the universities, they'd still have demand by people wanting to give their kids the good life who still believe that those paths are the good life.
What we do need is to reprogram people from viewing that as the path to the good life. The Last Psychiatrist noted in a three part series that college was a huge waste but we just had not figured out how to get around it yet. Republican lawmakers are too dumb to defund or freeze funding for universities. What will come will be the unraveling of the good life and the replacement with feudal jobs and people valuing other things. Missouri's tanking enrollment is a swath of people valuing the atmosphere of the university over U of M on their resume.
Money will be pulled eventually as people start demanding the funding be removed, as alumni stop donating and as elites start thinking about pulling R&D or science research private. When the money does get pulled, then the meltdown at universities will make the current meltdown in the media look tame. Jonestown mas suicides? On the table. Professors, sorry people stuck as adjuncts for 15 years, plummeting from buildings? Sure.
Once the identity of a learned academic is strongly shoved into the basement for many of these grievance hustlers and Marxist thinkers, they will have to admit they are nothing. It will crush them.
Last week I wrote on Venezuela's colectivos. Chavez made smart moves to try to capture the government. These were smart devious ways to use the oil revenue and harden all support for his regime. Seeing reports of men on motorcycles terrorizing people, this is a product of Chavez's deliberate moves. Weimerica Weekly was about barcades. I did pen the episode by talking about our class analysis. It is correct because it is politically incorrect.
I have a couple of items I may write about as I have been working on them a while so we will see what gets rolled out. Weimerica Weekly will cover the drag queen story hour coordination. I figured out why there was a burst of such events this year. Top down. It is always top down.
