  • Poll Watch: Americans’ Dismal View of the Nation’s Politics

    Occidental Dissent - Sep 23rd 2023 10:09am EDT

    Read the whole thing. I have included a few highlights below. As I have argued in recent weeks, “The Collapse” began a few years ago. We are currently living through it. The system is breaking down and losing legitimacy. Overwhelming cynicism and pessimism about politics is the norm. The people who still have faith in […]

  • Democracy Defenders Take On The Constitution

    Occidental Dissent - Sep 17th 2023 9:07am EDT

    As I have explained, my belief is that the remnants of the Constitution are mostly a good thing that vex people like this, but the Constitution has been disfigured by Lincoln, the Radical Republicans, the Progressives, FDR and others and doesn’t have much to do with how we are governed. Note: Defending Democracy is arresting […]

    Occidental Dissent - Sep 9th 2023 4:47pm EDT

    Democracy Defenders insist that democracy is fragile. It is fragile because it is human. It is fragile because it is up to us. In order to save democracy from dangerous authoritarians like Trump though, we might on occasion have to dispense with democracy when public opinion isn’t trending our way. The only way to save […]

    Occidental Dissent - Sep 7th 2023 8:20am EDT

    If Donald Trump could sweep the OD comment section again like in 2016, he could probably easily be elected president in 2024 USA Today: Donald Trump’s argument that the 2020 election was rigged has reinforced the views of Americans who are already disenchanted about politics, one factor in their inclination not to cast a vote next year ?

  • George Floyd’s Cultural Legacy

    Occidental Dissent - Sep 5th 2023 11:38am EDT

    I’m feeling satisfied. Over the past week or two, the movement barfed up another vanguardist shooter in Jacksonville and Blood Tribe led a Neo-Nazi goon march in Orlando that got a lot of media attention, but for some reason these two events were not as impactful as they might have been in the past. Just […]

  • The Atlantic: What Really Happens When Americans Stop Going to Church

    Occidental Dissent - Sep 3rd 2023 11:20pm EDT

    This was me in the early 2000s. The Atlantic: It seems clear that Christian nationalism attracts a lot of adherents who rarely go to church themselves. A PRRI survey published earlier this year showed that only 54 percent of Christian nationalists—and just 42 percent of those who are “sympathizers” with the ideology—attend church regularly. While […]

  • David Frum: The Fourteenth Amendment Fantasy

    Occidental Dissent - Aug 29th 2023 10:00am EDT

    David Frum has essentially restated my argument. If Section 3 of the 14th Amendment is used to remove Trump from the ballot in the 2024 election, it won’t stop there. It will be used against everyone who supported “the insurrection” on January 6. Imagine how broadly giving “aid and comfort” to Trump challenging the 2020 […]
