The country as we know it or what it once was is no longer and will never be.

Peter Brimelow writes:

Of course, this is an amazing development, besides being suicidal for the Republican Party.

But I am old enough to remember the total despair in the conservative movement in the mid-1970s. Bill Rusher, then the publisher of National Review, told me off the record that he believed all was lost and that the Red Flag would wave over the world – that the last chance had been 1968, when Reagan failed to beat Nixon for the Republican nomination, a closer thing than was generally reported.

“But,” he said, “we carry on. For one thing, you never know what will happen next. [A principle also endorsed by the Prussian military thinker von Clausewitz] And secondly, there are theological injunctions against despair!”

Six years later, Reagan was in the White House.

Moral: Once more into the breach!
