I owe AOC a big apology. After the past election, I warned that we should take her seriously not because of what she was saying, but because of what she represents. My point then was that she needed only to be the symbol, that the DNC would develop her script. I insinuated that she would be a puppet for the DNC.
Well. How wrong was I. AOC now has the Democratic contenders dancing like stringed puppets to her tune. This is awesome, and it makes politics worthwhile again. The established parties are boring and predictable. You can almost lip sync with the talking heads on television. You know what they are going to say before they say it. It’s never new.
The establishment Democrats thought it was all about Trump. Now, they have to guard two fronts. Dance, people, dance.
I feel the same affection for Ocasio-Cortez that I do for Nietzsche. Finally, a mortal enemy that understands how the battle is fought. If they had their way, her kind would guillotine the likes of me. Given enough power, they likely will do so.
That’s why I have such affection for them.
