With perfect, nearly poetic irony, modern civilization was ended by popular vote

In simple terms, on November 6, America joined the rest of the lost world in declaring once and for all that private property is an illusion. The product of a man's labor does not rightfully belong to him, which means his labor itself -- his time and effort -- does not belong to him, which means his life does not belong to him. Modernity's project is nullified. Milton, Locke, Swift, Diderot, Montesquieu, Jefferson and all the rest -- obliterated at the ballot box. - Daren Jonescu/American Thinker

What comes next remains to be seen, and to be fought for by the minority of us who are unwilling to accede to this mindless rush to barbarism. But for now, as of November 6, self-ownership, also known as individual sovereignty, is dead on this planet. Men are not free.

No election can rescind that truth, until the conditions that brought the world to this sad outcome have begun to be undone. We have a lot of work to do, and the clock is ticking, because victorious oppression has a way of accelerating exponentially with each little triumph.
