Humpty Dumpty

August 28, 2020

Morton Blackwell (80), Donald Devine (83) collectively represent 163 years of lived experience that they brought to American politics 49 years ago when Ronald Reagan was elected President of the United States.

Don Devine’s latest book outlines how to manage the Federal government, but the current President of the United States, Donald Trump (74) does not read books.
Last night our seventy-four-year-old President told the nation not to worry, “I am in control.”

That, of course, is the problem.

President Trump lacks knowledge of which, if any, educated professionals share his nationalist vision for saving the United States from younger generations of Americans who think that President is “old hat.” So if Morton Blackwell promotes Don Devine’s manual on how to run a government, nothing will come of that well-intentioned effort.

Educated in a variety of utopian socialist ideologies from 1973, when college administrators removed time-worn curricular requirements, our college educated citizens ceased to earn an education.

President Trump could not complete that curriculum either due to his Dyslexia, but fundamental attitudes and business skills that he brought to the Office of the President simulate what he never learned.

And in the 2016 election they resonated with an electorate seeking a return to the way things were when their parents were young.

Trump’s problem, and ours, is that over the last half a century we failed to educate our fellow Americans in our parents’ shared traditions and have created an intellectual vacuum.

Vacuous minds are easy prey to those determined to reshape society in their own image, not the commonsense world that once dominated public attitudes. That explains why Black Lives Matter and Moveon.org have resonated with the general public unaware of the ideas of Lenin those social movements embody. Nor do they appreciate that Joe Biden (78) is not President Trump’s primary opponent.

Though President Trump believes that he can save us by winning re-election, his opponents are multi-generational, the result of four decades of  Progressive dominance of American higher education. The President’s real opposition is represented by former President Barack Obama (53) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (31).

Whether Trump wins of loses in 2020, the seeds of his defeat were sown nearly fifty years ago.  All those forces are dividing our Humpty-Dumpty-like nation.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.
