I might make a larger post about this later, because currently I just don’t have the energy to type it all out 😂

Recently, we’ve all been trying to make sense of our current political and social climate, and have seen many lists of individuals suggesting the works of different scholars and public intellectuals. I’ll give a brief introduction to two of those people I haven’t seen many suggest, and certainly neither together. To this community especially, I think it’ll provide a good perspective.

The main topic of our conversation and debate appears to be the decline of trust in our institutions, and in circles of thought like this one, college campuses seem to be at the forefront.

Yuval Levin is the director of Social, Cultural, and Constitutional Studies at AEI, and founding editor of National Affairs (I’d suggest you search it up after reading this post). Recently he came out with his book “A Time to Build” where we writes on our failing institutions, ...

So we'd spend a week in the cold setting up this big show, and then take it down in the cold (sometimes snow, sleet, etc.) the night before Thanksgiving, working until early morning. Thanksgiving was like this big, delicious light at the end of the tunnel for me when I was through with a week of no sleep and lots of hard work, but now it's just something I'm dreading. Politics really has ruined everything.

Anyway, that's not really what I'd planned on talking about. Whoops. I actually have a favor to ask, if you have a moment.

I created a poll on my Locals to try and get a sense for where people are in terms of the general mood out there, and what folks are expecting, feeling, dreading, etc. If you'd be willing to help me in ...

Dumpster Fire 41 is here!

Has everyone lost their mind? Have we lost Sammy FandF down the conspiracy theory rabbit hole? Is Sia a new member of the IDW? Will Gavin Newsom be spying on my Thanksgiving?
