… This election has produced a result where it is abundantly clear that half of the electorate voted to oust the other half … All the usual tired bromides about democratic elections should be more clear than ever. There is no “will of the majority.” The winner doesn’t represent “the nation.” There is no consensus. We’re not coming together “as a people.” These tired slogans should now strike every intelligent person as nonsense … Until dissenters from the zeitgeist can assert far greater control through cultural institutions, publications, and schools, the nation’s ideology will continue in the direction it’s already moving. National elections are now referenda on the current speed at which the nation moves in that direction. But the direction itself is not up for debate.
