So Deep It’s Sunk, by Robert Gore

There are still lessons to be generally recognized from the fall of the Soviet Union. First and foremost: command and control doesn’t work. That’s a lesson US commanders and controllers and their media and academic fellow travelers ignore at their peril. They cling to their cherished vision of American life directed from above, with the infamous Deep State at the apex of the power pyramid, the ultimate string pullers. Recent maneuvers, however, suggest a Deep State so tangled in its own strings that any attempt to free itself will only make the situation worse.

    Any ideology that revolves around central planning and control is doomed to failure. Without being a mathematician, Adam Smith grasped the enormous number of uncontrollable factors and dynamism of a thriving economy, expressed by his use of the term, the "invisible hand" to describe the effects of those factors constantly changing interactions between producers and consumers. The Wealth of Nations is still the best dissertation on the workings of capitalist society. Ayn Rand grasped the unique nature of capitalism as the best form of a society capable of prompt reaction to wants and needs far more efficiently than any other. Socialists chasing Utopia will never comprehend the phantom they pursue to no avail.

    I worry that Trump is being blunted somewhat by giving into political correctness. He was right that both sides desserved blame for violence in Charlottesville, and I thought he gave into the leftists' demands to just let the leftist demonstators off the hook. Repeal and Replace is flawed and is pandering to the left. It should be REPEAL only, and let the free market figure it out.

    Well, the voters voted for a 'Strong Man' but maybe, as you insinuate, this strong man is on their/our side.

    I've thought myself, that if we are going to drain the proverbial swamp...we almost need a tyrant, (or chess player), to do that because the 'rule of law' doesn't stand anymore.

    Good catch on Feinstein's 180 turn around...although, I wouldn't of thought she had much to do with anything, thinking she's just another idiot but what you posit makes sense.

    Trump is either a superb game player or a buffoon. By a cursory examination of his career one can say that those who believe him to be a buffoon should be subjected to I.Q.tests.In every single case of conflict there is never a loss. It is either, "I win you lose," or "I'll be back." Many question his motives. The time is not ripe for that. If he accomplishes his well advertised goals we will then begin to get a peek at his true motives. Whichever way they turn out, they'll be a surprise to half the population.
