Rage, Rage For The Dying Of The Light

Matt Welch writes, “The defeat of communism 20 years ago was the most liberating moment in history. So why don’t we talk about it more?”

Indeed, particularly since fighting hasn’t subsided on all fronts: “Democrats to Curtail Free Speech”, as Power Line notes, and California outlaws mail order ammunition purchases, and requires “handgun ammunition vendors to obtain a thumbprint and other information from ammunition purchasers.”

And then there are the environmentalists’ rage for the dying of the light: “In 1879, Thomas Edison perfected his most iconic invention, the incandescent light bulb. It was nice while it lasted.”

Why do these backwards trends linger to this day? Blame the Frankfurt School, Bill Whittle says.
