Begone, ephemera; accretive word and action is the new mantra.
I am heartened to see those in prominent positions are of the same mind. E.g.:
What do I mean?
What is the one book everyone on the right has been bitching about for the past four years? Rules for Radicals, no? Highly effective work, wouldn’t you say? It (arguably) got a know-nothing affirmative-action poster child into the highest office in the world—twice.
And what was the magic of Rules for Radicals? I’d say it was the following:
- Discrete, concrete, achievable strategy and tactics,
- Written down in a single volume, and
- Effectively disseminated to ideological adherents.
And what do we have?
Ephemera…and ephemera all over the *@#*!# place.
And, subsequently, patriots running and firing in every which direction, no?
Or is my assessment off?
More to come. In the meantime, sound off.
